Conference Date
Conference Location

CEBAF Center Auditorium 


This jointly-sponsored DOE / NIH workshop "Advancing Medical Care through Discovery in the Physical Sciences: Radiation Detection" is the second of what is expected to become an annual series. The series is to be a forum for discussion of capabilities, challenges and emerging technologies of interest to both the medical and physical scientific communities. The first workshop aimed broadly at enhancing an on-going dialogue of shared information for synergistic advancements. While maintaining the latter dialogue and search for synergy, this second workshop focuses on Radiation Detection, with the following topics:

Cameras, Detectors for External Imaging – X-rays, protons, and beyond

Cameras, Detectors for Internal Diagnostic Imaging – SPECT, PET, and beyond

Cameras, Detectors for Therapeutics

Electronics and Data Acquisition

Image Reconstruction, Pre and Post Processing

Applications of Artificial Intelligence
