October 2019: Photoacoustic Radiofrequency Techniques for Imaging Cancer Treatment Response

Presented by Eno Hysi of Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada

Topics to be discussed:

  • Development of biomarkers that rely on the information encoded frequency domain of the PA signals, focusing on applications of monitoring cancer treatment responses 
  • The physics behind acoustic-resolution PA signal generation using fractal models of tumor vasculature
  • Applications of vascular-targeted treatments (thermosensitive liposomes, bubbles and radiation) will be discussed in the context of in-vivo preclinical models of breast and prostate cancers
  • Q & A Session
