Imaging with Light and SoundMS61

Recent years have seen increasing interest in imaging with photons in the visible and near-infrared spectrum. The physiological nature of chromophores in tissue gives rise to a rich set of contrasts but at the cost of complex models of light propagation and usually poor resolution resulting from the strongly ill-posed and non-linear nature of the corresponding inverse problem. Combining optical and other modalities in "Coupled Physics Imaging" can overcome these limitations, e.g., light-plus-sound modalities such as photo-acoustics and ultrasound modulated optical tomography. In this minisymposium we bring together leading researchers in the fields of optical, acoustic and coupled imaging.
