The rapid and continuing progress in computerized medical image reconstruction and the associated developments in analysis methods and computer-aided diagnosis have propelled medical imaging into one of the most important sub-fields in scientific imaging. As well as producing anatomical images, images of physiological function provide fresh diagnostic possibilities. After a brief overview of the imaging modalities and an indication of the breadth of current research, a few case studies including bone quality (in osteoporosis), cartilage degradation (in osteoarthritis), retinal tortuosity and spinal curvature (in scoliosis) will be presented. Some of the challenges and ongoing developments will be outlined.
Date of Conference: 23-25 Nov. 2009
