Following the successful OPTIMAX summer school held in Salford, 2013 and Lisbon, 2014 we organized OPTIMAX2015 summer school in Groningen. Fifty three people participated, comprising PhD, MSc and BSc students as well as tutors from the five European partners. Professional mix was drawn from engineering, medical physics/ physics and radiography. This summer school was hosted by the Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen in the Netherlands. It was funded by the partners. Two students from South Africa were invited by the Hanze University and one additional student from the United Kingdom who was funded by Nuffield. The summer school comprised of lectures and group work in which experimental research projects were conducted in five teams. Team project focus varied, two concentrating on CT reconstruction techniques and image quality, one on image quality high and low noise levels on DR systems, one on reliability and validity of detecting low dose radiation when using radiation detection applications and devices for smartphones. And one about ultrasound validity and reliability measuring rectus femoris muscle size. The summer school culminated in a poster market and conference, in which each team presented a poster and oral presentation on the conference. This book contains two parts, the first six chapters of this book shows the structure of organizing a summer school like OPTIMAX. The second part contains the oral papers in written format, in journal article style, and after editing they have been included within this book. At the time editing this book, several of the experimental papers has been commenced development work in order to make them fit for submission to conferences.
