Now that he has been granted Reinhart Koselleck Project funding, Prof. Ntziachristos and his team at Technische Universitaet Muenchen will advance their research into the basics of near-field thermoacoustic measurements and imaging, and systematically document their findings. In particular, they will investigate how to optimize the impact of electromagnetic waves on tissue for imaging purposes. Another priority will be to develop a measurement and imaging method that doctors can use for mobile diagnostics and check-ups. "Near-field thermoacoustics is a very exciting new development in high-resolution diagnostic and theranostic imaging," says Prof. Vasilis Ntziachristos. "Thanks to the DFG funding, we can explore it in great depth over the next few years."
