MSOT (Multi-Spectral Optoacoustic Tomography) is a novel clinical imaging technology that can deliver functional and molecular information from tissues that are not achievable with conventional clinical imaging modalities. Under the proposed project, the MSOT imaging scanner will be used in collaboration with several clinical research groups at the University of Zurich for clinical studies of cardiovascular, oncological, inflammatory and neurological disorders as well as monitoring of therapies. The information obtained by MSOT will be compared to established diagnostic techniques to fully assess applicability of this new technology in the clinics.
