Imaging and Biophotonics

Pushing the boundaries of light and sound

Our research in imaging and optics takes ultrasound, MRI and other imaging technologies in new directions:

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

Michigan is one of the best places in the world for therapeutic ultrasound.

Histotripsy, an extremely high-precision technique that uses ultrasound in non-invasive surgery, was invented here.
