The CMIH held its first annual academic workshop on April 19th.  The event, Developments in Healthcare Imaging – Connecting with Academia, was co-hosted with the Liverpool Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Healthcare (LCMH), and delivered by the Turing Gateway for Mathematics (TGM).

The one day conference brought together academics working on advances in imaging technology with researchers investigating new image analysis methods.  Sessions were hosted by Daniel Alexander (University College London), the LCMH, and the CMIH, and there was also a short session of ‘elevator pitches’, with a number of academics giving a brief overview of their ongoing work.  Alongside this was a poster session, with work from the CMIH and others presented.

This event was of interest to participants from the biomedical imaging, mathematics, engineering, computer science and physics, as well as biology and medicine.  Attendees found the talks offered a great insight into Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare and also the partnering EPSRC Centres.

The full programme, along with recordings of many of the days talks can be found on the TGM website.
