Computing power, data acquisition rates and storage capabilities have increased roughly a million fold in the last 20 years. This rapidly changing landscape gives rise to new opportunities for breaking down barriers that have inhibited imaging research from meaningful inter-disciplinary research and development.
Through this meeting, we seek to bring together researchers from the fields of Radio Astronomy Imaging and Radiological Imaging to share ideas and stimulate discussions about joint research that can benefit both communities through collaborative development projects.
The human imagination, powered by ingenuity, has led to the visualization of the furthest, largest structures in a dynamic universe while, at the same time, probing deep into our human physiology, to image the inner works of body and mind. Imaging, in all its forms, has impacted all areas of human endeavor, particularly in scientific and medical research.
Building on the inaugural planning meeting that was held in April 2019, the specific goal of the 2020 “From Cells to Galaxies” meeting is to host an “active” workshop. The agenda includes hands-on data analysis and cross-disciplinary applications of imaging techniques.
