Welcome to the Biomedical Photonic Imaging group

We investigate the use of light for medical purposes. Our final aim is to develop optical and hybrid optical-acoustical technologies for medical diagnosis, in particular in the fields of oncology and wound healing. Physiological properties of primary interest to us are microcirculatory blood flow, hemoglobin concentrations, and blood oxygenation. Our approaches include physical research into light-tissue interaction and its measurement, biomedical engineering to realize suitable instrumentation for in vivo use, and clinical evaluation together with several medical partners.
