SWIR (Automatic processing of shortwave infrared images: first steps towards cancer theragnosis using photobiological chemistry)
This project is based on the application of shortwave infrared (SWIR) for cancer therapy
01/01/2023 a 31/12/2023
The main goal of this proposal is to combine the research knowledge of the Applied Photobiological Chemistry (AppLightChem) research group at IQS and the Human-Environment Research (HER) group at La Salle in a common endeavor: the application of short-wave infrared (SWIR) light for cancer theragnosis (e.g., its use in fluorescence-guided surgery).
Objective 1: Develop a SWIR imaging device to image the SWIR emission from novel SWIR fluorophores and/or the weak phosphorescence of singlet oxygen.
Objective 2: Develop image denoising algorithms to enhance the images obtained via the SWIR imaging system.
