Medical image processing provides core innovation for medical imaging. This paper is focused on recent developments
from science to applications analyzing the past fifteen years of history of the proceedings of the German annual
meeting on medical image processing (BVM). Furthermore, some members of the program committee present their
personal points of views: (i) multi-modality for imaging and diagnosis, (ii) analysis of diffusion-weighted imaging, (iii)
model-based image analysis, (iv) registration of section images, (v) from images to information in digital endoscopy, and
(vi) virtual reality and robotics. Medical imaging and medical image computing is seen as field of rapid development with
clear trends to integrated applications in diagnostics, treatment planning and treatment.
