Invited Speakers

Colin Martin (UK)

Invited lectures: The use of diagnostic reference levels in optimization


Eye lens dosimetry for interventional radiologists and cardiologists: Practical approaches to protection and dose monitoring

Dr Colin Martin has worked as a hospital-based Medical Physicist in Radiation Protection and Diagnostic Radiology in the UK for over 30 years, and is a senior lecturer with the University of Glasgow. He has undertaken extensive research in optimisation of radiation protection for diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and non-ionising radiations.

Martin is a member of Committee 3 of ICRP (Protection in Medicine) and has links with IAEA and various UK committees. He has been involved in a number of medical exposure projects as an expert for the IAEA. He is a member of Editorial Boards for the Journal of Radiological Protection and Radiation Protection Dosimetry.



Norbert Pelc (USA)

Invited lecture: Spectral CT: Basic principles, applications, and prospects for molecular imaging

Professor Norbert Pelc is chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University. His primary research interests are in the physics, engineering, and mathematics of diagnostic imaging and the development of applications of this imaging technology. His current work focuses on computed tomography, specifically in methods to improve the information content and image quality and to reduce the radiation dose from these examinations.

Pelc holds doctorate and master degrees in Medical Radiological Physics from Harvard University and a BS from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He served on the first National Advisory Council of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering of the NIH. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering.



Jeremy Wolfe (USA)

Invited lectures: Medical Image Perception I: The human search engine


Medical Image Perception II: How much of my time is this image worth?

Jeremy Wolfe is Professor of Ophthalmology and Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. He is Director of the Visual Attention Lab and the Center for Advanced Medical Imaging at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Wolfe received an AB in Psychology in 1977 from Princeton and his PhD in Psychology in 1981 from MIT under the supervision of Richard Held.

Wolfe's research focuses on visual search and visual attention with a particular interest in socially important search tasks in areas such as medical image perception (e.g. cancer screening), security (e.g. baggage screening), and intelligence. He is Chair of the Psychonomic Society and Editor of Attention, Perception, and Psychophysics.
