Biomedical Optics Laboratory

The mission of Biomedical Optics Laboratory is to discover and explore alternative biomedical imaging methods using visible/near-infrared light, microwave, x-ray, and ultrasound. We develop advanced computational methods for inverse problems, construct complex or simple imaging hardware, and perform laboratory, pre-clinical and clinical experiments. Our recent research interests include the development and optimization of diffuse optical tomography, fluorescence molecular tomography, photoacoustic tomography, microwave tomography and electromagnetic wave-induced thermoacoustic tomography for a variety of pre-clinical and clinical applications including breast cancer detection, cancer margin identification, monitoring of cancer therapy, epilepsy localization, osteoarthritis diagnosis, and noninvasive study of neuro-vascular and neuro-cellular coupling.
