The annual Hounsfield memorial lecture was instituted by the Imperial College Imaging Sciences Centre in 2004 to recognise the contribution of Sir Godfrey Hounsfield in the development of medical imaging systems. The lecture has been designed as an opportunity for a world leading researcher in imaging science to review the latest developments in imaging science.
