Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is an emerging modality for medical applications such as cancer detection and diagnosis, image-guided surgery, and computational and digital pathology. This webinar, jointly hosted by the Photonic Detection Technical Group and the Molecular Probes and Nanobio-Optics Technical Group, will provide attendees with an overview of state-of-the-art HSI technology and its specific applications.

Dr. Baowei Fei from the University of Texas at Dallas and UT Southwestern Medical Center will present various hyperspectral imaging technologies and their medical and biological applications. The webinar will focus on how deep learning methods are applied to HSI and how HSI techniques are developed for image-guided surgery. Promising results from both preclinical and clinical studies will be presented in this webinar. Future directions and potential challenges of medical hyperpsectral imaging will also be discussed.
