Mathematical Imaging in Medicine and Neurosciences

This multidisciplinary group aims to construct new tools for Imaging and Image-derived Neurological data analysis, with focus on numerical methods and error estimation. These tool are meant to be applied in MRI, PET, SPECT imaging in clinical research or as a support for clinical practice.

People: S. De Marchi, D. Cecchin, D. Poggiali, C. Campi, F. Marchetti and P. Gallo.
