Development and Evaluation of Approaches for Quantitative Optical Molecular Imaging of Neoplasia
This thesis develops and evaluates three approaches for quantitative molecularly-targeted optical imaging of neoplasia. The first approach focuses on widefield imaging of biomarkers near the tissue surface for early detection ...
Optimization of novel developments in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a widely used imaging modality for diagnosing patients with cancer. Recently, there have been three novel developments in PET imaging aiming to increase PET image quality and quantification. ...
Clinical cancer diagnosis using optical fiber-delivered coherent anti-stokes ramon scattering microscopy
This thesis describes the development of a combined label-free imaging and analytical strategy for intraoperative characterization of cancer lesions using the coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering imaging (CARS) technique. ...
Novel Methods for Reducing Breast Dose During Computed Tomography Scans
Pediatric female and young adult female patients who undergo computed tomography (CT) scanning may be at higher risk for developing radiation-induced breast cancer later in life. Thus, the purpose of this thesis was to ...
