About the Event
Imaging is used extensively in medicine for patient diagnosis, treatment monitoring, and basic research. Image quality depends on both the physical instrumentation and on the algorithms used to reconstruct the images from the raw data acquired by the scanners. This talk will illustrate how statistical signal processing methods have impacted certain medical imaging applications and related fields during the quarter century plus that Prof. Fessler has collaborated with colleagues and students at U-M.
Jeff Fessler is a world-renowned leader in medical image reconstruction. He has revolutionized the theory and practice of medical imaging with his group's groundbreaking mathematical models and algorithms that significantly improve both patient safety and image quality. He has produced major improvements in the theory, design and clinical use of scanners in radionuclide imaging (PET/SPECT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and X-ray computer tomography (X-ray CT).
