Prof. Andy Adler

Process tomography: what's being done in medical applications?

Abstract: Electrical measurements on the surface are used to calculate internal images in many different fields. In process tomography images are used to monitor pipe flows and mixing. In geophysics, images are useful to understand hydrogeology and metallic ore locations. And for medical applications, images are useful to monitor movements of air and fluids in the body. Unfortunately, these communities do not share information well, and similar ideas are reinvented many times.  The goal of this talk is to introduce some of the techniques and applications of electrical imaging in biomedical applications and to relate them to process tomography.

Biography: Andy Adler is a Canada Research Professor in biomedical engineering in Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. His research interests are broadly in the area of biomedical measurement and robust data analysis.  Previously, he taught and researched at the University of Ottawa, and worked in senior technology positions at four different companies. He received a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal in 1995.
