Thesis Project Description:
The PhD aims at providing innovative, minimally invasive fiber-based optical technologies for the rapid detection of cancerous tissue. Taking advantage of the latest developments in the field of photonic crystal fibers and coherent Raman imaging/spectroscopy, the objective is to develop a Raman endoscope that can perform molecular imaging and molecular spectroscopy at the end of the fiber tip. The goal is to bring a label free optical solution in the operatory room, enabling real-time virtual histology. This would greatly improve the targeting of suspicious tissues in endoscopic exploration and surgical action prior to excisional biopsy and classical histology. Ultimately this would even completely avoid the need for tissue removal.
