Clinical Hyperspectral Imaging - Poster presentation at 3rd International Symposium on Tumor-Host Interaction in Head and Neck Cancer
The medical student, Hoang-Ngan Nguyen, of the UKJ team had the great opportunity to present his results on hyperspectral definition of head and neck tumor margins at the 3rd International Symposium on Tumor-Host Interaction in Head and Neck Cancer in Essen (Germany). He could show the high potential of hyperspectral imaging (HSI) for tumor characterization in the head and neck area. This labelfree approach provides spatial and spectral information at a microscopic level and will contribute to improved tumor detection. In next steps a fine-tuning for single cell imaging will be performed.
This congress contribution shows very nicely how fruitful interdisciplinary work between (ongoing) physicians and natural scientists is.
