Call for
X-ray imaging has its beginning in medical imaging. However, advances in x-ray component technology coupled with the exponential growth in computational capability has fueled the expansion of x-ray imaging to numerous defense and security applications. For example, x-ray based imaging system are now widely deployed at security checkpoints for explosive and contraband detection at airports, seaports, commercial and military building/installations. Another modern application of x-ray imaging is non-destructive part inspection for industrial and aviation safety. While the application base for x-ray based anomaly detection and imaging continues to grow the x-ray imaging system architecture, inspired by computed tomography (CT) for medical imaging, has remained largely unchanged. However, recently non-traditional x-ray imaging architectures and sophisticated post-processing algorithms have begun to emerge which leverage recent advances in mathematical theory of sampling (e.g. compressive sensing) together with increasing exploitation of available signal and task prior information. This conference provides an open forum for researchers from academia, industry and government to address current/future challenges by sharing latest advances in all aspects of x-ray based anomaly detection and imaging, ranging from component technology, reconstruction and data exploitation algorithms, imaging/sensing system architectures to system performance metrics and novel defense and security applications.
