Medical Imaging in Low-Resource Settings


Despite significant progress in modern healthcare, state-of-the-art healthcare in first-world environments differs significantly from that in low-resource settings. Constraints on cost, size, usability and environmental stability pose interesting challenges to engineer suitable solutions in these spaces. This session will bring together impactful research that showcases innovative strategies for imaging that are suitable for implementing in low-resources settings such as rural areas, primary care centers and low- and middle-income countries.

Organisers: Nicholas Durr (Chair) & Audrey Bowden (Committee member)
