Professor Jeffrey Bamber, Ultrasound and Optical Imaging team

Ultrasound imaging provides essential in-vivo anatomical and functional information that can be used in cancer medicine for early detection, differential diagnosis, staging, biopsy guidance, treatment planning, treatment guidance, and the assessment of response to treatment. Our team’s work aims to enhance these functions by inventing, developing and applying ways of deriving new information from ultrasound signals. Optical methods complement ultrasound, with considerable potential for adding new information to that provided by ultrasound as, for example, in the multiphysics imaging method of photoacoustic imaging.

Our research is strongly translational, from basic physics and technical development, through preclinical studies to clinical evaluation. 

The research interests of the Ultrasound and Optical Imaging team include:
