An Overview of Biomedical Imaging
Biomedical imaging is critically important for life science and health care. In this rapidly developing field, mathematics is one of the most powerful tools for developing image reconstruction as well as image processing theory and methods. Many of the innovations in biomedical imaging are fundamentally related to the mathematical sciences. With improvements of traditional imaging systems and emergence of novel imaging modalities such as molecular imaging towards molecular medicine, imaging equations that link measurements to original images become increasingly more complex to reflect the reality up to an ever-improving accuracy. Mathematics becomes increasingly useful and leads to a new array of interdisciplinary and challenging research opportunities. The future biomedical imaging will include advanced mathematical methods as major features.
