The two-volume set LNCS 5241 and LNCS 5242 constitute the refereed proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI 2008, held in New York, NY, USA, in September 2008.

The program committee carefully selected 258 revised papers from numerous submissions for presentation in two volumes, based on rigorous peer reviews. The first volume includes 127 papers related to medical image computing, segmentation, shape and statistics analysis, modeling, motion tracking and compensation, as well as registration. The second volume contains 131 contributions related to robotics and interventions, statistical analysis, segmentation, intervention, modeling, and registration.
