Past Imaging Technology Fairs

2016 Imaging Technology Fair


November 16, 2016  3:00pm - 6:00pm 
Fitzpatrick Center – Schiciano Auditorium A & Pre-Function Area

The 2016 Imaging Technology Fair, which was co-sponsored with the Center for In Vivo Microscopy, included a talk by Visionary Seminar speaker, Dr. Kim Butts-Pauly, Professor of Radiology at Stanford University.  Dr. Butts-Pauly's current research includes MRI-guided focused ultrasound in applications ranging from cancer treatment to functional disorders.

A poster session and reception followed Dr. Butts-Pauly's seminar.  Over 20 graduate students and post-docs were on-hand at the poster session to highlight their medical imaging-related research.  Congratulations to the 2016 Imaging Fair winners!

Most exciting new imaging technology:
