Optical techniques are playing an increasingly important role in clinical care for imaging, physiological monitoring and treatment. his meeting aims to highlight examples and experiences of taking optical techniques into clinical practice.
Suggested application areas include but are not limited to photodynamic therapy, endoscopy, physiological monitoring, dermatology, opthalmology.
Suggested techniques include optical coherence tomography, multi-photon microscopy, fluorescence lifetime imaging, diffuse optical imaging, acousto-optic imaging, optical coherence tomography, adaptive optics.
Lunch will be provided.
