MATHS MEETS MEDICINE: HOW MATHEMATICIANS IMPROVE MEDICAL IMAGING

6:30pm-8:00pm on Friday 8 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Centre for Mathematical Sciences, MR2, Wilberforce Road, CB3 0WA

In this video, mathematicians, physicists and medical doctors explain medical image reconstruction at five successive levels: for children, teenagers, adults, undergraduate science students and postgraduate science students. The video is accompanied by an interactive X-ray reconstruction game, and followed by a panel discussion on how mathematics revolutionises medical imaging.

The event consists of a presentation of methods for medical image reconstruction, such as X-ray or positron emission tomography, with speakers coming from mathematics, physics, and medicine. To begin with, we project a video presenting the topic for five points of view: children, teenagers, adults, undergraduate science students, and postgraduate science students. Children will learn the need of X-ray tomography for diagnoses in a short cartoon. Teenagers will learn how X-ray data is generated using simply structured images -- followed by a game in which they can try X-ray reconstruction by eye themselves. On the adult level, we talk about the simple physical and mathematical background of X-ray reconstruction. We finish with more mathematical details for the science students.

The event will be concluded by a discussion panel on the topic “How mathematics revolutionises medical imaging?” with mathematicians and medical doctors.
