TALK: Luminousflux Exhibition - Campus Partner Talk
|Luminousflux Exhibition - Campus Partner Talk : With researchers from the Optical + Biomedical Engineering Laboratory (OBEL) in the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, UWA
LUMINOUSFLUX explores the ways in which local and international artists harness the magical palette of light. In this talk, researchers from the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics will discuss their current research related to the use of light as a medical diagnostic tool.
Imagine a microscope small enough to be placed inside a needle. Then consider the possibilities this creates in examining how our bodies work. Engineers, pathologists, surgeons and radiologists have been working together on a microscope-in-a-needle, which can be used during surgery to tell where the edge of the cancer is to improve the rate of success.
Their goal, of breast tumour margin identification during surgery, to prevent women from needing secondary procedures, is in sight. This talk will reveal this and other cutting-edge technologies developed by the OBEL team.
