Four EPSRC CTA studentships are available in BioMedical Imaging

The Kent Institute of Medicine and Health Sciences (KIMHS) at the University
of Kent has established a new MSc
<http://www.kent.ac.uk/kimhs/courses/postgrad/bmi-msc-course-description-det
ailed-2008-09.html>  in BioMedical Imaging in collaboration with Departments
at the University of Kent and King's College London.

The course covers the major forms of medical imaging including MRI, PET,
ultrasound, CT, X-ray, and also the rapidly advancing fields of optical
coherence tomography and molecular imaging.  There is special emphasis on
the use of computer techniques for manipulation and analysis of images, with
modules on programming and medical image computing.  Visiting lecturers
include international authorities in the field.  The programme includes
lectures on applications of medical imaging given by leading clinicians from
East Kent and London, industry scientists and bioscience researchers, case
studies, laboratory work and visits to major facilities to see the imaging
systems in action.

ailed-2008-09.html>  Imaging MSc is aimed at those with a first degree in a
numerate subject wishing to pursue a career and/or gain further knowledge in
