Medical Software has Astronomers Seeing Stars
July/August 2008 (vol. 10 no. 4)
pp. 4-9
Pam Frost Gorder, Freelance science writer
The Astronomical Medicine Project (http://astromed.iic.harvard.edu/) is working to convert medical imaging software into tools that fuel discoveries in astronomy. But if the scientists behind the project have their way, any discipline that relies on large, complex data sets will reap the benefits.
