An Interactive Tour of Medical Imaging!

October 25, 2020, 11:30 am

12:00 pm

Imaging is used extensively in medicine, and medical physicists are interested in the different ways you can create accurate pictures of the body!

For this session we present a tour of the different imaging modalities we use, for example, MRI, CT and ultrasound. We discuss how each type of image is generated and what they are used for, and show fun examples of images of different fruit- participants can scroll through the 3D images to identify them! Finally, we’ll have an interactive demonstration of collecting ultrasound images of a gelatin block containing different toys and objects. We will play a game where kids can try to guess what objects they see in medical images!
