Video: Integrating multiple major tomographic scanners

Ge Wang, director of Virginia Tech’s Center for Biomedical Imaging, has a history of “firsts” in the imaging world, including the first paper on spiral multi-slice/cone-beam CT in 1991, on bioluminescence tomography in 2004, and on interior tomography in 2007.  

In a recent paper that appeared in the refereed journal PLoS One, Wang speaks about new combinations of medical imaging technologies that hold promise for improved early disease screening, cancer staging, therapeutic assessment, and other aspects of personalized medicine. 

The integration of multiple major tomographic scanners into a single framework is a new way of thinking in the biomedical imaging world and is evolving into a grand fusion of many imaging modalities known as omni-tomography.
