The Visual Analytics and Imaging Systems group supports two Collaborative Computational Projects (CCPs) for tomography (imaging by sections) in material science and medical imaging.

CoSeC_Logo.jpgThrough the work at these CCPs we are building capacity in advanced software infrastructure for the material science and medical tomography communities.The Collaborative Computational Project in Tomographic Imaging (CCPi) aims to provide the
UK tomography community with a toolbox of algorithms that increases the quality and level of information that can be extracted by computer tomography (neutron or x-ray tomography). 

The Collaborative Computational Project in PET/MR ​aims to exploit the recent integration of positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging into a single simultaneous imaging system. The aim is to provide enabling infrastructure for research in PET-MR by development and promotion of a common software framework to tackle the specific challenges of this imaging modality.
