Symposium: a kaleidoscope of imaging

The word kaleidoscope derives from the Greek kalo ´beautiful´ + eidos ´form´+ scopein ´see´. In this symposium, just like in a kaleidoscope, we will get to see rich forms of imaging methods interrogating various parts of the human body to uncover patterns of physical and physiological contrasts so we learn more about disease and health. The symposium is organized in connection with the inaugural lecture of Professor Srirang Manohar who was appointed as Professor and Chair of M3I. While the M3I presence is seen in both sessions, the second session also involves valued collaborators who perform research into imaging the female breast.
