Optical and Multimodal Imaging
We develop new instrumentation for diagnostic and functional imaging:
- a 3D time-resolved optical tomography system called MONSTIR which we use to image the newborn infant brain and for breast disease;
- a rapid 2D optical topography system for brain imaging with our new spin-out company, Gowerlabs;
- an optical coherence tomography (OCT) instrument;
- a system for spectroscopic eye imaging.
We also work on new experimental methods in optical imaging
Optical imaging has some unique benefits, but also some disadvantages which we try to minimise by multimodality imaging.
- X-ray/optical imaging
- EEG/optical imaging
- Photogrammetry and optical imaging
- Terahertz imaging
- Image reconstruction
The physiological information which optical imaging provides is well-suited to intelligent imaging methods.
- Imaging ancient documents
- Imaging tissue microstructure
- Intelligent neonatal monitoring
- Computer assisted diagnosis
We also have projects in proton radiotherapy research.
