M3. Tomographic Inverse Problems

Tomography has revolutionized diagnostic medicine, nondestructive evaluation and materials science. By nature, tomography is an inverse problem—recovering information about the structure or properties of an object using indirect data. Modern modalities include novel methods in X-ray CT, hybrid imaging, multi-modal imaging, multi-energy CT, ultrasound, Compton CT, and time-dependent problems. Each modality generates novel mathematics and new algorithms, many of which will be presented in this minisymposium. We will bring together young and established researchers from the inverse problems community to present their recent work and to foster discussion among participants.
