Welcome

We are excited to organize the fifth venue of this conference on image formation in x-ray computed tomography. Our main goal is to provide a cozy forum for interactions between CT scientists and discussion of cutting-edge CT research in medical imaging and non-destructive testing. The meeting will be limited to an attendance of about 150 people, and will take place in historic Fort Douglas, which was the location for the athlete village during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

Oral presentations will be allocated a significant time to allow in-depth presentations and debate. These presentations will be supplemented by comfortable poster sessions to allow further discussion and dissemination of results. In addition to the meeting itself, scientific interactions will be facilitated by shared meals provided in a quiet atmosphere.

We welcome submissions on all topics that are related to image formation in CT. Ideal submissions will clearly demonstrate the impact of the investigated technology on the CT image. Evaluations with computer simulations and real data are both acceptable. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Image reconstruction algorithms
  • Scatter and beam-hardening compensation schemes
  • Dose evaluation and dose reduction strategies
  • Image quality assessment
  • Multi-energy imaging
  • Phase-contrast CT
  • Dynamic imaging
  • Cone-beam tomography
  • Breast CT imaging
  • Micro-CT
  • Geometrical calibration
  • New data acquisition geometries
  • Novel CT technologies

  • Please feel free to contact the general chair if the suitability of your contribution for this conference is unclear.

    Fort Douglas is located adjacent to the campus of the University of Utah, and offers breath-taking views of the Salt Lake Valley and the Wasatch mountains. Great hiking opportunities await the visitors in beautiful canyons which are as little as a 20-minute drive away from the conference. Also, Utah has more National Parks than any other state in the country, offering further opportunities for sightseeing before or after the conference.
