Mesoscopic and Microscopic Biophotonics Imaging of Brain

Hosted By: Therapeutic Laser Applications Technical Group

13 February 2023 12:00 - 13:00

Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC - 05:00)

In this webinar hosted by the Therapeutic Laser Applications Technical Group, Dr. Xingde Li from Johns Hopkins University will present his recent work on intra-operative detection of brain cancer infiltration in patients and functional brain imaging in freely-moving rodents. The technology platforms include quantitative OCT and scanning two-photon fiberscope. The working principles, algorithms, and key technology developments will be briefly discussed, followed by the results of intra-operative studies in patients and preliminary functional brain imaging studies in freely-behaving animals. The use of deep learning to assist data analyses will also be discussed for achieving automated image segmentation, classification, image compression, and imaging speed/quality augmentation.

Subject Matter Level: Intermediate - Assumes basic knowledge of the topic

What You Will Learn:
• Intra-operative optical imaging of brain cancer
