The program emphasizes the latest developments in technology and instrumentation and their implementation in experiments for space, accelerators, other radiation environments, and homeland security.
The Medical Imaging Conference is the longest standing and most respected international scientific meeting on the physics, engineering and mathematical aspects of x-ray and nuclear medicine based imaging. Each year significant innovations in all forms of medical and biomedical imaging are welcomed and presented, as x-ray, nuclear medicine (emission imaging and radioisotope therapy) and its technologies intersect and overlap with many arenas of medicine (e.g., Radiology, Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology) and their technologies. This conference is an excellent venue for communication and discussion of novel medical and biomedical imaging technologies and uses. Average attendance to previous NSS-MIC meetings has been approximately 1400.
