Medical imaging has historically used x-rays, ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance (MR) to capture anatomic features for clinical diagnosis. The speakers at the 2013 Great Lakes Biomedical Conference will share how traditional limitations are being overcome. Ultrasound systems are going from the cart to the coat pocket. Dual energy X-Ray absorptiometry is being used to assess changes in bone density associated with repeated blood donation. Neurology research is combining optics with genetics. Spectral imaging demonstrates traditional X-Ray & CT still have a lot to offer. As the speakers will make clear, the application of imaging runs the gamut from clinical research, to clinical practice, to security screening in airports. The material, likewise, will be of interest for biomed & engineering students, to medical product developers, to clinicians, and anyone else interested in the challenges of developing cutting edge systems.
