Specialist Computed Tomography Lectures

UCD Diagnostic Imaging host a visit by two eminent US academics, Professor Norbert Pelc (Stanford University) and Professor John Boone (University of California, Davis) on Monday 23rd June 2014. Both visitors will deliver advanced diagnostic imaging lectures from 10:00 - 12:00 in A005, UCD Health Science Centre.  We are honoured to have such distinguished visitors who have contributed extensively to the world of medical physics, imaging and dose reduction with Professor Boone a main author on the "Image Gently" campaign.  

Professor Pelc is currently chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University. His primary research interests are in the physics, engineering, and mathematics of diagnostic imaging. His current work focuses on computed tomography, specifically in methods to improve the information content and image quality and to reduce radiation dose.

Professor Boone is an academic in the Department of Biomedical engineering at University of California, Davis. His primary research interests are in novel x-ray detector systems for digital mammography and radiography, dual (x-ray) energy radiographic imaging and image processing.

Both visitors have each agreed to present to UCD Diagnostic Imaging staff and we are delighted to extend an invitation to both inside and outside of the University.  Professor Boone will speak on "Dedicated Breast CT" and Professor Pelc on "Potential impact of spectral photon counting detectors in computed tomography". 

The lectures will run 10-12 in A005, UCD Health Science Centre, Belfield.
