ImagO Colloquium Series on Medical Imaging

ImagO colloquia are part of the PhD programme medical imaging (ImagO) of the graduate school of life sciences in the UMC Utrecht, the Netherlands. These colloquia are open for researchers and students with an interest in medical imaging. The target audience is researchers in the field of medical image processing, MR Physics, radiology and radiotherapy. We invite national and international speakers that work on biomedical image processing, biomedical image acquisition, or image-based clinical applications. The colloquia are held in the Auditorium (New Q-building, UMC Utrecht, the Netherlands).
