Reversing Time, Photoacoustics and Other Optical Breakthroughs in Biomedical Imaging

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 @ 7:30 PM-9:00 PM


Featured Speaker: Lihong Wang, Ph.D., Gene K. Beare Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis; Academy Fellow and recipient, 2014 Academy of Science James B. Eads Outstanding St. Louis Scientist Award

A St. Louis scientist and his lab reverse time and combine light and sound to engineer pioneering techniques to improve medical imaging and disease treatment therapies.  Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) and time-reversed adapted-perturbation, or (TRAP) optical focusing, are novel medical imaging technologies that promise to revolutionize the way we diagnose and treat disease.  You won’t want to miss hearing about these important engineering breakthroughs in this fascinating talk with internationally renowned photoacoustics expert, Lihong Wang.

Learn more about how Lihong and his colleagues are using time reversal technology to improve medical imaging here: Washington University Engineering – News Story.

FREE and OPEN to ALL.  Middle and high school students welcome!  Check with your teacher, you may be able to attend for extra credit!  Proof of attendance available following the presentation.
