Multimodal Imaging in Biophotonics

Symposium Organizers

Stephen Boppart, University of Illinois, USA
Wolfgang Drexler, Medical University of Vienna, Austria

Current clinical medical imaging technologies are expensive and complex with limited sensitivity and specificity. Multimodal optical imaging techniques have the potential to offer low-cost, non-invasive, accurate, rapid alternatives, with the potential to address global medical needs. This symposium focuses on state-of-the-art biophotonics imaging techniques, as well as novel optical sources for instrumentation and applications. Combinations of techniques – also including endoscopic approaches - offer multimodal solutions to diagnostic needs that will exploit the benefits of each modality and will enable optical diagnostics with superior sensitivity, specificity, reliability and clinical utility at reduced cost.
