Description

The aim of this project is to use modern imaging techniques to study the blood flow, function and composition of periorbital tissue, in order to improve reconstruction after tumor removal. We study and develop the use of modern non-invasive imaging techniques including laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI), diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) and photoacoustic imaging (PAI). Knowledge on how the blood flow and the survival of tissue flaps are affected by these surgical procedures will make it easier to perform simpler and less invasive reconstructions.
The project is both experimental and clinical and will be performed in collaboration with researchers from the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University.
