ECBO 2017 – European Conferences on Biomedical Optics
In focus: Optics and photonics basic science and applied research to solve problems in medicine and biomedicine.
ECBO 2017 – European Conferences on Biomedical Optics is organized by OSA – The Optical Society
Sponsored by OSA and SPIE, the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO) bring together scientists, engineers, and clinicians who work with optics and photonics to solve problems in medicine and biomedicine.
Presentations covered basic science, novel technology and applications in the areas of advanced microscopy, clinical and biomedical spectroscopy, diffuse optical imaging, molecular imaging, neurophotonics and optogenetics, optical coherence tomography and other coherence techniques, therapeutic laser applications, laser-tissue interactions, opto-acoustic methods, and other novel biophotonics techniques.
The conference featureed awards recognizing best student papers.
