Personal profile


Medical imaging plays an important role in cancer diagnosis. However, existing imaging technologies provides limited information on the cellular microstructure of tumours, which necessitates invasive biopsies. An emerging technology that may radically change what is possible with non-invasive imaging methods is “microstructure imaging”. This technology yields novel imaging biomarkers, and its development takes advantage of recent improvements in both imaging hardware and in theoretical models of tissue structure. To fulfil their potential, the new imaging biomarkers need to be validated in both clinical studies and with microscopy approaches. Our research deals with the development of these novel imaging methods.
