Optical Tomography

Professor John C. SchotlandOptical TomographyUniversity of Pennsylvania

There is considerable interest in the development of optical methods for biomedical imaging. The physical problem consists of recovering the optical properties of a medium probed by multiply-scattered light. This talk will review recent work on related inverse scattering problems for the radiative transport equation and fast image reconstruction algorithms for large data sets. Numerical simulations and experimental data from model systems will be used to illustrate the results
John C. Shotland is an associate professor of bioengineering and electrical engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. His research is focused on theoretical optical physics with applications to biomedical imaging and nano-optics. Areas of current interest include optical tomography, optical imaging of nanoscale systems, and the use of quantum states of light for optical imaging. Inverse problems, particularly inverse scattering problems, are a unifying theme which connects these areas. Dr. Schotland received his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania.
