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 ...
Modulating Gold Nanoparticle in vivo Delivery for Photothermal Therapy Applications Using a T Cell Delivery System
This thesis reports new gold nanoparticle-based methods to treat chemotherapy-resistant and metastatic tumors that frequently evade conventional cancer therapies. Gold nanoparticles represent an innovative generation of ...
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. ...
