In reference to the patent: US 2010/0080432 A1
A paper has been published that would constitute prior art for this patent: "PIB-PET SEGMENTATION FOR AUTOMATIC SUVR NORMALISATION WITHOUT MR INFORMATION" (by Raniga, Bourgeat, Ourselin, Villemagne, O'Keefe, Rowe), presented at the ISBI conference in April 2007. The submission for this conference was 1 Dec 2006, and thus preceded the priority date for this patent application.
Would this publication invalidate the patent?
