Project Details:

Visual Quality Enhancement in Optoacoustic Imaging

Prof. Dr. Daniel Razansky
Prof. Dr. Vasilis Ntziachristos

Start of PhD-work at GSISH:

July 2013

Project Description: 
Multi-Spectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) is capable of high resolution 3D visualization of molecular probes located deep in scattering living tissues. This method can simultaneously deliver anatomical, functional and molecular information with both high resolution and penetration capabilities. The present generation of the MSOT systems can scan 3D volumes at video rate and provide real time visualization of the imaged tissue.  The dissertation work is based on the new generation MSOT system(s), and aims to develop better visualizations in real time for the multi-dimensional and multi-spectral data in a clinically valuable way. The primary objectives of the project are visual quality improvement of MSOT images, and enhancement of system capabilities for pre-clinical and clinical investigations.  Thus, the research envisages development of new parameter optimization strategies for image reconstruction and quantification. Multi-resolution and scale- space signal processing techniques are being employed to enhance resolution and improve the signal to noise ratio (SNR) in optoacoustic images, aided with GPU based acceleration. Further, the project aims to develop quality benchmarks for image quality and algorithms (in terms of computational complexity and operation time), thus enabling evaluation of the efficacy of methodologies for imaging biological specimens in vivo
