The SOLUS projects invites everyone to an online end user workshop about its multimodal system for better diagnosis of breast cancer on December 3rd from 14:00 – 18:00 CET.
The workshop will present the project achievements, discussing advances in photonics, the newly developed smart optode and the multimodal SOLUS system for better breast cancer diagnostics.
The EU-funded project SOLUS (Smart Optical and Ultrasound Diagnostics for Breast Cancer) aims at improving the diagnosis of breast cancer through an innovative multimodal imaging system with the ability to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions non-invasively. To achieve that, SOLUS combines ultrasound imaging with diffuse optical tomography, and assessing tissue morphology, stiffness, composition and blood parameters at the same time.
The development of the novel SOLUS system required significant advances in photonics; we‘ve developed a Smart Optode as the key element of the imaging system, but also available a stand-alone device for time-domain multi-wavelength diffuse optics, with potential applications in medical and non-medical fields.
The SOLUS End User Workshop is open to everyone who is interested in breast cancer diagnostics, medical imaging and photonics.
The smart optode‘s potential as an independent photonics device will also be discussed.
A detailed programme will follow shortly.
