School of Physics and Astronomy, The University of Birmingham, B15 2TT

Speakers: Dr Michael Wilson, The University of Birmingham & University Hospital, Birmingham NHS Trust

Find out how physicists build machines that do what our eyes cannot – see inside the human body.
This inspiring lecture will reveal how:
• over the past hundred years physicists have developed increasingly sophisticated techniques to see inside the body;
• these techniques use x-ray, radioactive molecules and magnetic fields to produce images of the body;
• these images allow doctors to diagnose and treat illness and disease better.
The talk will include hands-on demonstrations and animations.
Please note that tea and coffee will be provided from 7 pm in the Tea Room of the Poynting building.
