Biomedical imaging was born from the great ideas of physics implemented by engineering and is currently undergoing a revolution.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has existed for 30 years now and was the last of the major imaging techniques (X-rays, ultrasounds, imaging with radioactive tracers, MRI) developed in the 20th century. It has revolutionized medical diagnosis and therapeutic approaches.
Though initially a diagnostic and morphological tool, the challenge for modern imaging is now to monitor and adapt treatment in a personalized way based on functional information requiring dynamic, precise tools. It is a multidisciplinary technique at the interface between chemistry for tracers, biology for knowledge of the signals to be extracted, mathematics for the development of integrative biological models and the humanities and social sciences for questions affecting all individuals and society as a whole, etc.
