About This Webinar
Photoacoustic imaging is a hybrid technique with combined optical contrast and ultrasound-based resolution and imaging depth, offering tremendous potential in detection and treatment monitoring of cancer and inflammatory disorders. But one of the key reasons photoacoustic imaging is not yet common in clinics is the traditional requirement of high-priced and bulky pulsed lasers for tissue illumination. In last five years, the use of LED arrays has been explored heavily as an alternative to lasers, opening up the possibility of democratizing clinical photoacoustic imaging. Singh introduces photoacoustic imaging and compares the performance of LEDs and lasers in photoacoustic microvascular imaging. Using the results from patient pilot studies (including the imaging of arthritis, wound regeneration, port wine stain, and lymphatic system), he also discusses multiple clinical applications of LED-based photoacoustic imaging that are now possible.

About the presenter
Mithun Kuniyil Ajith SinghMithun Kuniyil Ajith Singh, Ph.D., is an engineering scientist with extensive experience in preclinical and clinical photoacoustic and ultrasound imaging. He is presently working as a research and business development manager at CYBERDYNE INC. in the Netherlands. In his current role, he initiates and coordinates various scientific projects in collaboration with globally renowned research groups, especially focusing on the clinical translation of LED-based photoacoustic imaging technology. Singh earned his doctorate in 2016 from the University of Twente in the Netherlands under the supervision of professor Wiendelt Steenbergen. Singh has published multiple international journal articles and book chapters, mainly focused on accelerating the translation of photoacoustic imaging from bench to bedside. He is the editor of LED-Based Photoacoustic Imaging, the first book on the topic, published by Springer Nature in 2020.
