Soroush passed his PhD dissertation defense on December 9th, 2014, entitled “Portable, Real-time Tissue Functional Imaging Using Frequency Domain and Continuous Wave Diffuse Optics” Congratulations, Soroush!
Kyle Cutler has received the Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering after submitting his thesis entitled “Surface Motion Tracking Hardware for use in Reflectance-based Diffuse Optical Imaging.” Congratulations Kyle!
Our new combined metabolic DOS and DCS probe (measures composition and flow) has now been accepted for presentation at the 2014 World Congress of Endourology. This work is being performed in collaboration with the UC Irvine Department of Urology.
Our team has completed another portable mDOSI instrument, this time for Dankook University in Korea. We hope for continued success and for a great collaborative research relationship.
This past weekend we cheerfully sent a newly-minted mDOSI instrument to Cote d’lvoire (Ivroy Coast) to participate in the AFSN-African Spectral Imaging Network. Bruce Tromberg and Tom O’Sullivan are conducting a session in Diffuse Optics as part of the AFSIN workshop. Of course with institute approval – we hope to pilot a few studies with the mDOSI instrument and inspire a new generation of scientists to use technology as a means to improve health care for all.
We hope to soon report exciting new results.
The DOSI Lab will have several talks and posters presented at the Photonics West Meeting from February 2 to 7. Please check out our latest results, including updates for the ACRIN #6691 clinical trial and latest technology developments.
mDOSI5 has made it safely to Japan and after some last-minute tweaks and heroics, it is up and running. New breast cancer studies should be forthcoming.
Each week we will add an interesting paper that covers something of technical/analytical/applicational interest to DOSI. The PDF’s will be loaded onto the server but you will need a password to access. Check out the new link on the right for this new feature.
Tomorrow Dr. Bruce Tromberg and Dr. Albert Cerussi will be presenting the DOSI lab miniature instrument to a selection of representatives from the UC system. They recently received a “UC Discovery Grant” designed to accelerate lab technologies into the marketplace.
Beckman Laser Institute High school Summer Clinic is open for applications. Please check out our latest information and complete your application today. Spots tend to fill up quickly and there are a limited number of openings.
