During the first week of December, Chicago McGormick Place was the place to be if you happen to be interested in medical imaging, X-ray, MRI, ultrasound and all associated technologies.
Are you building a new X-ray device, doing academic research or are you an end-user of CT equipment?
When times are hard, good hopes do not bring in more turnover. But can you increase your profit? Is the quality of your incoming materials, parts or components good enough? Have you line stops?
I just visited the International Conference on Industrial Computed Tomography (ICT) at the University of Applied Sciences in Wels in Upper Austria. Conference is arranged every 2 years and is a must visit for all who are working with new CT technologies. Timing was perfect - I was able to present some really interesting reconstruction results that we did for NASA. The case was about reconstruction using limited transmitter movement angle.
Have to admit. Wish I also had such a view from my office! You can see the highest mountain in Germany. Me and a couple of radar experts just visited the DWD Hohenpeissenberg Observatory near Munich. DWD has 17 weather radars in total and one research radar located in Hohenpeissenberg, which is the oldest mountain observatory in the world. Meteorological data has been collected since 1781.
