Presented by Erin Niven, Alberta Health Services.  
 
Is it any wonder that you are the most imaged generation of all time?  Technology’s role has been vital in image production:  it has made imaging devices smaller, faster, cheaper, better, and easier to use across all industries.  Those advancements have resulted in an astronomical increase in the number of images taken of you and by you.  But you are already hard-wired to crave images; your brain responds to and processes visual data far better than any other kind of data.  So of the innumerable images produced daily, which ones are the most important?  What is your contribution to this data set?  Could you see yourself being a Diagnostic Imaging Medical Physicist?
