The contents of the ten lectures to be delivered by Prof.
Kuchment will be on mathematical techniques, problems,
results, and challenges of computed tomography (CT).
Classical tomographic modalities:
SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography), PET (positron
emission tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), EIT
(electrical impedance tomography), ultrasound tomography,
Novel hybrid methods currently being
tomography and photoacoustic tomography (TAT/PAT), Magnetic resonance
electrical impedance tomography (MREIT), Acousto-electric
tomography (AET), Acousto-optical tomography (AOT), Magnetic
resonance elastography (MRE)
The issues to be discussed will include
mathematical modeling, uniqueness of reconstruction,
reconstruction formulas and algorithms, stability of
reconstruction, range descriptions, and incomplete data
The details of the lectures will be provided later.
