Welcome to IWDM 2012, the 11th International Workshop on Breast Imaging. Formerly called the International Workshop on Digital Mammography, our new name recognizes the move in breast imaging towards recent and emerging technologies and multimodality imaging solutions. IWDM 2012 is designed as a platform to present the latest technological developments and clinical experiences of novel breast imaging technologies, including digital mammography, tomosynthesis, CT, MR, ultrasound, optical and molecular imaging. Additional topics include multimodality imaging, image processing and visualization, and computer aided imaging.

The IWDM meetings bring together a diverse group of researchers, clinicians and representatives of industry, who are jointly committed to developing technology for early detection and subsequent patient management of breast cancer. The conference series was initiated at a 1993 meeting of the SPIE in San Jose, with subsequent meetings hosted every two years by researchers around the world. Previous meetings have been held in York (1994), Chicago (1996), Nijmegen (1998), Toronto (2000), Bremen (2002), Durham (2004), Manchester (2006), Tucson (2008) and Girona (2010).

IWDM 2012 will be held from Sunday July 8, 2012 to Wednesday July 11, 2012, on the beautiful University of Pennsylvania campus in downtown Philadelphia, USA. The conference is timed to coincide with the annual celebrations of America’s declaration of independence in Philadelphia, the birthplace of America.

His original photo was taken in 2008 during the U.S. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each October a number of recognizable Philadelphia landmarks are visibly transformed to help increase the awareness of the disease and to raise funds for breast cancer research.
