2nd BE-OPTICAL School


The purpose of the visit was to attend the 2nd BE-OPTICAL School at the Institute of Physics of the Nicolaus Copernicus University and to discuss the characterization of the Bessel Beam OCT setup. The main topics of the lectures were :

  • optical technologies for high-resolution imaging,  metrology and sensing,
  • tissue optics and bio photonics,
  • statistics, data analysis and classification tools
  • prepare a clinical trial,
  • introduction to biostatistics and its applications in  clinical studies.

Apart from scientific lectures which covered a wide range of topics like measurement and analysis of reflectance and fluorescence spectra, light transport in tissue, modelling and video techniques, laser therapy in field of tissue optics, there was also lecture on how to write a good science paper. There was also a brief overview of different imaging modalities, imaging devices such as microscopes, hand held probes and catheters, in vitro and in vivo studies. There were courses on statistics, data analysis and classification tools describing among other the linear and nonlinear time series analysis.
