Brief description This project will create new tools to quantify the structural and functional properties of tissue. Combining multiple optical imaging technologies (multi-modal) into a single, miniaturised probe, these tools will enable physiologists and biomedical researchers to obtain new insight into disease. Encasing the highly miniaturised probe within a medical needle will allow insertion of the ‘needle probe’ deep into tissue, extending optical imaging to areas not previously accessible. The project will develop novel quantification models to allow longitudinal assessment and comparison between subjects. Validating the tools with specific biomarkers, it will provide deliverables in breast and liver cancer, and a framework to explore other diseases.
