Spread spectrum method based diffuse optical tomography for brain imaging
By Dr Kalpesh Mehta (SMART-BioSyM)
Extraction of functional information such as bimolecular information are important in biological applications, as they are the precursor to the structural changes in tissues. In my talk I will discuss about novel diffuse optical imaging system as a modality to extract the hemodynamic information.
Conventional diffuse optical imaging system uses pulse laser as a source. Use of pulse laser makes system design bulky and expensive. In our work we have proposed novel spread spectrum method based diffuse optical tomography system. The proposed system is fast, compact and accurate. The proposed system has been used for the brain imaging applications to monitor the cognitive state.
Dr. Kalpesh is currently a postdoctoral associate in BioSystems and Micromechanics Inter-Disciplinary Research Group of Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART). He did his masters from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in Electrical Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in Optical imaging area, from the NUS Graduate school of integrative science and engineering (NGS). After his PhD he worked as an associate scientist at cognitive science program, Temasek Laboratories.
