IMAGING & BIOPHOTONICS

Imaging and Biophotonics

Objective:

Our research in imaging and optics takes ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging technologies in new directions which include the treatment and identification of disease and promoting growth. Michigan is an innovator in therapeutic ultrasound. Histotripsy, an extremely high-precision technique that uses ultrasound in non-invasive surgery, was invented here.

 

 

What We Do:

  • Probing the composition and properties of tissues
  • Treating disease
  • Stimulating growth

 

 

Applications:

  • Treatment of newborn infants
  • Treatment of diseases such as cancer and heart disease
  • Diagnosis and non- invasive examination
