Lecture 1. Method of Small Volume Expansions and its Applications to Medical Imaging I will explain the mathematical theory of the small volume expansions in the context of the conductivity equation, which is the simplest possible model. I then discuss how this mathematical theory can be applied to an electrical impedance tomography problem to detect small inclusions buried inside a body. Lecture 2. Mathematical Analysis for MRElastography and Applications MRElastography is a recent modality to image the internal part of body using the internal measurements of the displacement vectors. One of the advantages of the imaging method using MRE over other methods is that it can detect the stiffness parameter of the tissue, by which we can distinguish malign cancer from benign cancer. In this lecture I will explain a new method of reconstruction using MRE data. Lecture 3. New reconstruction methods for Magneto-acoustic Imaging. A new and promising technique in the medical imaging is to excite a local part of body using acoustic or ultrasonic focusing and to measure changes due to the excitation. I will explain new reconstruction methods for the Magneto-acoustic imaging and the vibration potential tomography.
