9 TED Talks That Anyone Working in Medical Imaging Should Watch

TED talks, are talks on Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED) . Here are some great medical imaging related talks for your information.

 

  1. Ramesh Raskar: Imaging at a trillion frames per second

http://www.ted.com/talks/ramesh_raskar_a_camera_that_takes_one_trillion_frames_per_second

Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography, a new type of imaging so fast it visualizes the world one trillion frames per second, so detailed it shows light itself in motion. This technology may someday be used to build cameras that can look “around” corners or see inside the body without X-rays.

 

  1. Deborah Rhodes: A test that finds 3x more breast tumors, and why it’s not available to you

http://www.ted.com/talks/deborah_rhodes

Dr. Deborah Rhodes developed a new tool for tumor detection that’s 3 times as effective as traditional mammograms for women with dense breast tissue. The life-saving implications are stunning. So why haven’t we heard of it? Rhodes shares the story behind the tool’s creation, and the web of politics and economics that keep it from mainstream use.

 

  1. Daniel Kraft: Medicine’s future? There’s an app for that

http://www.ted.com/talks/daniel_kraft_medicine_s_future

Daniel Kraft offers a fast-paced look at the next few years of innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, tests and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient’s bedside.

 

  1. Nick Veasey: Exposing the invisible

http://www.ted.com/talks/nick_veasey_exposing_the_invisible_1

Nick Veasey shows outsized X-ray images that reveal the otherworldly inner workings of familiar objects — from the geometry of a wildflower to the anatomy of a Boeing 747. Producing these photos is dangerous and painstaking, but the reward is a superpower: looking at what the human eye can’t see.

 

  1. Jack Choi: On the virtual dissection table

http://www.ted.com/talks/jack_choi_on_the_virtual_dissection_table

Onstage at TED2012, Jack Choi demonstrates a powerful tool for training medical students: a stretcher-sized multi-touch screen of the human body that lets you explore, dissect and understand the body’s parts and systems.

  1. James Watson: How we discovered DNA

http://www.ted.com/talks/james_watson_on_how_he_discovered_dna

Nobel laureate James Watson opens TED2005 with the frank and funny story of how he and his research partner, Francis Crick, discovered the structure of DNA.

 

  1. Jeremy Howard: The wonderful and terrifying implications of computers that can learn

http://www.ted.com/talks/jeremy_howard_the_wonderful_and_terrifying_implications_of_computers_that_can_learn

What happens when we teach a computer how to learn? Technologist Jeremy Howard shares some surprising new developments in the fast-moving field of deep learning, a technique that can give computers the ability to learn Chinese, or to recognize objects in photos, or to help think through a medical diagnosis. (One deep learning tool, after watching hours of YouTube, taught itself the concept of “cats.”) Get caught up on a field that will change the way the computers around you behave … sooner than you probably think.

 

  1. Bill Doyle: Treating cancer with electric fields

http://www.ted.com/talks/bill_doyle_treating_cancer_with_electric_fields

Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the best-known methods for treating cancer. At TEDMED, Bill Doyle presents a new approach, called Tumor Treating Fields, which uses electric fields to interrupt cancer cell division. Still in its infancy — and approved for only certain types of cancer — the treatment comes with one big benefit: quality of life.

 

  1. Mary Lou Jepsen: Could future devices read images from our brains?

http://www.ted.com/talks/mary_lou_jepsen_could_future_devices_read_images_from_our_brains

As an expert on cutting-edge digital displays, Mary Lou Jepsen studies how to show our most creative ideas on screens. And as a brain surgery patient herself, she is driven to know more about the neural activity that underlies invention, creativity, thought. She meshes these two passions in a rather mind-blowing talk on two cutting-edge brain studies that might point to a new frontier in understanding how (and what) we think.
