Mathematics & Medicine - how mathematics, modelling and simulation can lead to better diagnosis and treatment

by Antonella Zanna (University of Bergen, Norway)

The advance of technology and imaging has given rise to an incredible development in Medicine and Biology. This development has also made doctors and biologist understand that they need more mathematical tools (than just statistics) to solve more advanced problems and get better diagnosis and a personalized treatment. In this talk, I will present some of the medical projects I and my collaborators have been working on, involving image analysis, modelling and quantification of physiological parameters.
