Lihong Wang Hot Topics presentation: Photon-Phonon Synergy: Photoacoustic Tomography and Beyond

Presented at SPIE Photonics West 2015

5 March 2015, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201503.16

Lihong Wang, Washington University in St. Louis (USA)

Photoacoustic tomography is expected to impact biology and medicine broadly by providing multiscale in vivo functional and molecular imaging of structures ranging from subcellular organelles to organs, enabling a noninvasive look at subcutaneous tissue at a deep level.

Lihong Wang holds the Gene K. Beare Distinguished Professorship of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, and is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Biomedical Optics.

Wang was awarded the 2015 Britton Chance Biomedical Optics Award for his pioneering technical contributions and visionary leadership in the development and application of photoacoustic tomography, photoacoustic microscopy, and photon transport modeling.
