European Conferences on Biomedical Optics ECBO 2017


Prof. Wojtkowski’s group, participated in the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics ECBO 2017 organized by the Optical Society-OSA and International Society for Optics and Photonics-SPIE. This conference was an international meeting of scientists, engineers, and clinicians who work with optics and photonics.

This conference was a continuation of “Optical Coherence Tomography and Coherence Techniques” and sought to broaden the scope to cover the general area of imaging in biological scattering media based on coherent light and its interactions with biological tissues. The conference provided an interdisciplinary forum for topics in research and development on a physical and theoretical basis of coherent imaging including techniques like optical coherence tomography/microscopy, adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy, nonlinear coherence imaging, photothermal and magnetomotive imaging and imaging with advanced wavefront control. In addition, this conference focused on the development of new light sources, new probes, new detection schemes and new signal processing algorithms for coherent imaging. Applications of coherent optical techniques for morphological as well as functional assessment in different living tissues and phantoms in various medical fields were also covered.

Prof Maciej Wojtkowski was invited to European Conferences on Biomedical Optics ECBO 2017 as a session and discussion leader. He was responsible for organizing sessions entitled: „ Optical Coherence Imaging Techniques and Imaging in Scattering Media (OCT) / Advances in Microscopic Imaging (AMI)” which took place on Monday 26.06.2017 16:30AM- 17:30PM and Thursday 29.06.2017 10:00AM- 12:30PM.

Dawid Borycki gave a talk entitled Removing image distortions by spatio-temporal optical coherence manipulation. Shortened abstract of this talk was: light propagating in turbid medium is randomly disrupted, causing image distortions. This issue was tackled by the sample-dependent wavefront shaping. Here, he present a technique of light modulation, in which image distortions are suppressed universally.

Mounika Rapolu gave a talk on Bessel Beam OCM for analysis of Global Ischemia in Mouse Brain focusing mainly by presenting the in-vivo imaging of the global mouse brain ischemia using Bessel beam optical coherence microscopy. This method allows to monitor changes in brain structure with extra control of blood flow during the process of artery occlusion.

Patrycjusz Stremplewski presented of the poster entitled Noninvasive two-photon imaging of murine retina in vivo. Presented results were acquired in collaboration with Department of Pharmacology, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland.
