Joint BER/NIH Workshop of Applications of Thermography in Medical Diagnosis and Therapy


A joint BER/NIH workshop on the application of thermography in medical diagnosis will be held December 3-4, 2001, at the Hyatt-Bethesda. The objectives of this workshop are to: (1) identify applications of thermographic approaches to medical diagnosis and therapy using microwave, magnetic resonance, and acoustic modalities; (2) facilitate communication and related research collaborations between DOE laboratory, NIH, and academic investigators; and (3) communicate opportunities for collaborative research. The workshop will last 1-1/2 days and will consist of overview plenary talks from invited extramural experts, short presentations of related DOE technology and NIH research, and discussions on how problems in medical diagnosis and therapy can be addressed using represented capabilities and programs.
