4DMedical XV Technology Webinar

ACPSEM Queensland will be hosting a free webinar describing some of the exciting technological developments in x-ray velocimetry and lung imaging made by Dr Andreas Fouras and 4DMedical.

From origins in aerospace engineering measuring airflow across aircraft surfaces in minute detail, 4DMedical was incorporated in 2012 to acquire an imaging platform and associated intellectual property from Monash University where it was originally conceived and developed by Dr Andreas Fouras and his research group. This XV Technology™ is the first FDA/TGA cleared respiratory imaging solution using mathematical models and algorithms to convert sequences of X-ray images into four-dimensional quantitative data. The result of over 15 years of development and published preclinical / clinical studies is a revolution in respiratory imaging and ventilation analysis poised to supersede existing respiratory diagnostic modalities, fundamentally changing outcomes for patients with lung disease.

Dr Fouras provides an overview on the background and need for 4DMedical’s XV Technology™, its algorithmic basis, the challenges of translating this into clinical outcomes, and an insight into future developments by 4DMedical – recipients of $29.9m of funding in the latest MRFF grant round.

Please register on the ACPSEM website and a webinar invite will be emailed to you.

People have been fascinated by scientific discovery since ancient times. Today, for the first time ever, we can discover and analyse phenomena that we can neither see nor feel directly. In this fascinating presentation Dr Steven Goldfarb will talk about dark matter, antimatter, and dark energy. He will go into extra dimensions and will look into the 95% of the Universe that we still know nothing about.

Dr. Steven Goldfarb is a particle physicist working on the ATLAS Experiment at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics. He received his PhD from the University of Michigan in 1991, for research carried out on the L3 experiment on CERN’s Large Electron Positron collider, and began his current participation on the Large Hadron Collider in 1998. He served as ATLAS Muon Software Coordinator and participated in preliminary studies of the Higgs boson search.  Most recently, Dr. Goldfarb has focused effort on the challenges of large-scale science communication. He served as ATLAS Outreach Coordinator, overseeing worldwide communication of the Higgs boson discovery in 2012, and launching the award-winning ATLAS Virtual Visit system. Dr. Goldfarb currently chairs the International Particle Physics Outreach Group, coordinates the University of Michigan REU CERN Summer Student and Semester Abroad programs, serves on the US National Science Foundation’s QuarkNet advisory board and the American Physical Society Committee for Informing the Public. Dr. Goldfarb discussed the necessity of scientific exploration for human survival at TEDxTUM, attempted to answer how humans measure what we cannot see at TEDxOporto, and played the role of a purple worm in the production of a TED Ed animation, in which he and his friend Dave (try to) explain how the Higgs boson gives particles mass. He also fronts the popular Geneva-based Canettes Blues Band.
