Nuclear Medical Imaging and Physics: Application in Cardiac SPECT

Friday April 14, 2017
4:00 pm

 Presenter:  John Strologas, University of Ioannina
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Physicists contribute in many aspects of medical imaging, especially in nuclear medicine.  Our physics background and tools allow us to study the interaction 
of radiation with patient, design collimators, detectors, and DAQ systems, implement image reconstruction, and perform data analysis.  Modeling through Monte-Carlo simulations is an invaluable technique to address these tasks.  I will present the basic principles and limitations of Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), as applied in cardiac imaging, concentrating on the design and performance of a novel cardiac SPECT system.
 Host:  Michael Gold

 Location:  Room 125, Dane Smith Hall

Refreshments will be available before the colloquium, at 3:45 pm, in the lobby of Dane Smith Hall.
