Computer Simulation and Visualization in Medicine
Professor Christopher R. Johnson, Director of the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah, will discuss today's use of scientific visualization and computer simulation in medicine. In particular, Professor Johnson will discuss recent applications to problems in cardiology and neuroscience that have provided researchers and physicians with powerful tools for understanding and addressing important medical conditions.
Johnson holds faculty appointments in the School of Computing and the Departments of Physics and Bioengineering. His particular interests include inverse and imaging problems, large-scale computational problems in medicine, and scientific visualization..
