Math Encounters:
"3D X-Ray Vision: how tomography uses math to reveal the invisible"
featuring Samuli Siltanen

Wednesday, February 8 at 4:00 pm ET (New York)

(in person)

Doctors peek inside patients using CT scanners, combining X-rays and mathematics to produce slice images.  How easy is it to decipher what they see?  Join mathematician Samuli Siltanen and test your own tomographer skills as you guess the image only by looking at X-ray data.  Then, learn how you can use math to more accurately identify the image... even if it’s a unicorn!

Special introduction by Jennifer Mueller, Professor Laureate in the College of Natural Sciences at Colorado State University.
