This volume contains research and review articles written by participants of two related international workshops "Mathematical Methods in Emerging Modalities of Medical Imaging" (October 2009) and "Inverse Transport Theory and Tomography" (May 2010), which were held at the Banff International Research Station in Banff, Canada. These workshops brought together mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and medical researchers working at the cutting edge of medical imaging research and addressed the demanding mathematical problems arising in this area.

The articles, written by leading experts, address important analytic, numerical, and physical issues of the newly developing imaging modalities (e.g., photoacoustics, current impedance imaging, hybrid imaging techniques, elasticity imaging), as well as the recent progress in resolving outstanding problems of more traditional modalities, such as SPECT, ultrasound imaging, and inverse transport theory. Related topics of invisibility cloaking are also addressed.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in inverse problems, imaging, tomography, and radiation transport.
