We combine ultrasonics and optics to develop technology for real time microscopy, imaging and tracking during surgical and interventional procedures. Here are our main current research topics.
We develop methods for real-time tracking of surgical tools such as needles using integrated, miniature ultrasound technology based on fibre-optics and photoacoustics.
We develop next-generation, highly miniaturised endoscopy probes for in situ histopathology of tissue. These imaging probes provide unparalleled insights into tissue function, molecular composition and structure at sub-cellular spatial resolution in real-time.
We are combining ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging, with ultrasound imaging providing tissue structural information and photoacoustic imaging identifying devices and critical tissue structures.
