Inverse Tomography

A few years ago I had the pleasure to attend Pedro Goldman's presentation (Argentinian scientist) about his research in inverse tomography and applications to the calculation of the optimal dosage of radiation for radiotherapy.

Fast Optimization or the Radiation Therapy of Tumors -the Impossible Possible

Sitting down on my chair I would not expect that this was going to be one of the most shocking and interesting presentations I ever attended.

This research field is mathematically interesting and extremely important for medical physics.
