Mini-Workshop

Current and future trends in computed tomography


September 15-16, 2016 - Innsbruck

 

Computed tomography (CT) is one of the most important diagnostic tools in modern medicine. While the term computed tomography was initially reserved for x-ray based CT scanners, it nowadays covers various non-invasive imaging technologies, where mathematics plays a major role for obtaining diagnostic images. The unifying element of all tomographic applications is that only indirect information about the quantities of interest are collected when scanning the patient, and that mathematical reconstruction algorithms are a central aspect to obtain an image of the patient.

In this workshop leading experts report on recent developments in tomographic image reconstruction, including x-ray CT, single photon emission computed tomography, ultasound tomography, as well as photoacoustic and thermoacoustic tomography.
