Welcome to IWDM 2014, the 12th International Workshop on Breast Imaging. Formerly called the International Workshop on Digital Mammography (IWDM), our new name recognizes the move in breast imaging towards recent and emerging technologies and multimodality imaging solutions. IWDM 2014 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 detection/diagnosis (CAD).

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), Girona (2010) and Philadelphia (2012).

IWDM 2014 will be held from
Sunday June 29, 2014 to Wednesday July 2, 2014, on Juroku Plaza in downtown Gifu, Japan. The conference is held just after Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS 2014) 28th International Congress and Exhibition, in Fukuoka, Japan (June 25-28).

Thank you very much for your interest and/or participation.
