FinTomo Workshop and Meeting

23.-24. May, 2019

Location: Kumpula Campus, University of Helsinki, Finland

X-ray tomography is a versatile imaging method to analyze samples ranging from very large (like humans) to extremely small (microstructures), serving many scientific fields including medical science, pharmacy, chemistry, biology, geology, physics, material sciences etc. Development of X-ray tomographic imaging devices and reconstruction algorithms relies on both engineering and mathematics, thus with end users bringing together a wide range of scientific disciplines.

The FinTomo-network was founded in the fall of 2017 to improve communication and collaboration between Finnish tomography users and laboratories. The website to FinTomo network can be found at: www.fintomo.fi. The agenda of our workhop is to bring together X-ray tomographists all over Finland to present their research, equipment and the possibilities X-ray (micro)tomography has to offer to research and to discuss how such imaging tools can benefit the Finnish scientific community.

 

Who should be interested?

Everyone who uses x-ray computed tomography (CT) and micro-CT in their research, industry and education.
