The proceedings contain 81 papers. The special focus in this conference is on Medical Image Understanding and Analysis. The topics include: End-to-end learning of a conditional random field for intra-retinal layer segmentation in optical coherence tomography; superpixel-based line operator for retinal blood vessel segmentation; automatic detection and identification of retinal vessel junctions in colour fundus photography; fast optic disc segmentation in retinal images using polar transform; a novel technique for splat generation and patch level prediction in diabetic retinopathy; deep residual networks for quantification of muscle fiber orientation and curvature from ultrasound images; multi-level trainable segmentation for measuring gestational and yolk sacs from ultrasound images; weakly supervised learning of placental ultrasound images with residual networks; edge aware geometric filter for ultrasound image ENHA; tissues classification of the cardiovascular system using texture descriptors; multidimensional assessments of abdominal aortic aneurysms by magnetic resonance against ultrasound diameter measurements; comparison of automatic vessel segmentation techniques for whole body magnetic resonance angiography with limited ground truth data; evaluating classifiers for atherosclerotic plaque component segmentation in MRI; classification of cross-sections for vascular skeleton extraction using convolutional neural networks; improved CTA coronary segmentation with a volume-specific intensity threshold; multi task fully convolutional network for brain tumour segmentation; classification of cervical-cancer using pap-smear images; new level set model in follow up radiotherapy image analysis and topological analysis of the vasculature of angiopoietin-expressing tumours through scale-space tracing.
