David Boas Hot Topics presentation: Optical Spectroscopy and Tomography of Oxygen Delivery: From Macro to Micro and Back
Presented at SPIE Photonics West 2014
SPIE member David Boas (Massachusetts General Hospital) discusses techniques for understanding oxygen delivery through the vascular network, in "Optical Spectroscopy and Tomography of Oxygen Delivery: From Macro to Micro and Back."
The use of microscopy coupled with modeling techniques to study the heterogeneous and complex oxygen delivery network and blood flow pattern in the vascular network is detailed.
Boas is a researcher ar the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, the teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. Boas was recently named editor-in-chief of the new SPIE journal Neurophotonics.
