Understanding maths for producing and managing medical imaging.
Managing medical images and data.
Understanding the mathematics of Computerized Tomography (CT)
Being able to understand modern CT and 3D image reconstruction from projections
CT Scanners and nuclear imaging (SPECT and PET) have greatly improved medical diagnoses and surgical planning. Mathematics is necessary for these medical imaging systems to deliver images. We present mathematical problems arising from these medical imaging systems. We show how to reconstruct images from projections of the attenuation function in radiology or respectively of the activity in nuclear imaging. We present recent advances in 2D and 3D reconstruction problems.Prerequisites
