Acousto-Photonic Imaging is a new frequency domain optical technique for
non-invasive medical imaging, which is based on the combination of Diffuse
Optical Tomography (DOT) and focused ultrasound. Diffuse Optical
Tomography, due to its diffuse nature, can not provide good spatial
resolution by itself. Therefore, the objective is to use ultrasound to
acoustically generate optical diffuse sources at different modulation
frequencies, to improve the spatial resolution as well as to acquire the
optical properties of human tissue.
This research project is part of the work at the Optical Science Laboratory of Chuck DiMarzio in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University. For other projects see Optical Science Lab Research Page.
