Presenter Disclosures

Educational Needs These sessions promote understanding of:

  • The use of light in medicine for imaging and diagnostics, in which photons interrogate the structure and function of cells and tissue. 
  • The design of light-based diagnostic devices and techniques.
  • Basic processes of light interaction with tissue and cells.
  • The use of imaging for guiding intervention.

Participants Clinicians, scientists, researchers, developers.

Background Requirements Basic understanding of optical imaging and light tissue interactions.

Instructional Content/Expected Learning Objectives Participants will learn about:

  • New imaging strategies for guiding patient care.
  • How optical imaging can be used to visualize tissue function,
  • Understand molecular events in light-mediated treatments
  • How to monitor interventions.

"Hot topics"

  • Structural and Functional Imaging.
  • Point of care Multimodal Imaging.
  • Image-Guided interventions.
