Imaging the Biomechanics of Life
January 13, 2019 - January 18, 2019
Exploring physical parameters in patients, e.g. liver elasticity, arterial pulsation, palpation of nodes and tumors, temperature, etc. is an old medical approach but, paradoxically, its scientific basis has remained poorly understood. New tools developed for high level physics are now coming into use to image the biomechanics of life: Atomic Force Microscopy, Optical Coherence Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Elastometry and Diffusion, Ultrafast ultrasound, Multispectral Optoacoustic tomography, Optical tweezers... are inducing a dramatic shift in exploration of live organisms.
