M25. Inverse Problems in Biomedical Imaging

Imaging techniques are a powerful tool for the analysis of human organs and biological systems. They range from different kinds of tomography such as X-ray CT (Computed Tomography), EIT (Electrical Impedance Tomography), DOT (Diffuse Optical Tomography), PT (Photoacoustic Tomography), OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography), etc. to different kinds of microscopy (fluorescence microscopy, single-molecule fluorescence, Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy, etc.). They are based on the solution of inverse problems that require mathematical modeling of the acquisition process and numerical methods for the solution of the equations relating the acquired data to the unknown object.

The purpose of this mini-symposium is to bring together researchers with different backgrounds and interests in Inverse Problems in Biomedical Imaging. All researchers, academicians, practitioners, as well as students interested in these knowledge areas, are invited to submit their recently achieved results in modeling, solution methods and their use on real data from biomedical applications.
