PAMMOTH Training

Online training

The interdisciplinary research in PAMMOTH explained in short video spots.
The ‘PAMMOTH’ project on ‘Photoacoustic Ultrasound Mammoscopy for evaluating screening detected abnor-malities in the breast-, hopes to lead the research into photo-acoustic, real-time 3D imaging of suspicious lesions.

How patients benefit from science Video

The Biomedical Photonic Imaging (BMPI) group investigates the use of light for biomedical purposes. The final aim is to develop optical and hybrid optical-acoustical technologies for medical diagnosis, in particular in the fields of oncology, rheumatology and wound healing. Physiological properties of primary interest are microcirculatory blood flow, haemoglobin concentrations, and blood oxygenation. The approaches include physical research into light-tissue interaction and its measurement, biomedical engineering to realize suitable instrumentation for in-vivo use, and clinical evaluation together with several medical partners.
