Rapid advances are occurring in diverse branches of imaging science and engineering—including our own. The geophysical, medical, and space imaging communities share many similar challenges and research opportunities. Imaging research has often been energized by an influx of new theories and methods from related disciplines, and now seems an excellent time to compare notes with our fellow imaging researchers.

The goal of the SEG 2001 Summer Research Workshop “Synergies in Geophysical, Medical, and Space Imaging,” was to encourage cross-fertilization among imaging physicists in these three disciplines. The workshop was held 22–26 July 2001 in Newport Beach, California, U.S., to attract...
