Title: | Mathematics used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging. |

Speaker: | Will Spencer, `13 Mathematics Major |

Abstract: | MRI is an indispensable diagnostic tool in the medical field which may be used to identify certain abnormalities in an individual in a noninvasive way. The mathematics behind conversion of the data collected lays the foundation for making such data interpretable by those who need to use it. I will briefly elaborate on the physics underlying nuclear magnetic resonance to build an understanding of the concept, coupled with a very brief description of what NMR is used for in the medical field. Then, I plan to discuss how the signals collected are converted into images using mathematics. |
