2. Demonstrations of research at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Linköping

Biomaterials: In our lab we develop bioengineered devices such as artificial corneas and micro-lenses made from collagen and nanocellulose and heart patches made from carbon nanotube. We will demonstrate their development processes. 


Biomedical Imaging: As the only non-invasive method that provides exquisite contrast within the brain, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is performed routinely in the diagnosis and management of many cerebral diseases. We strive to transform MRI’s diagnostic power by developing diffusion-weighted MRI techniques for obtaining information at length scales much smaller than the resolution of conventional MRI scans. 


Biomedical Optics: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), provides A-scan, B-scan (2D) and 3D images from the structure of the tissue/material based on the optical scattering of light in the tissue. A Telesto II, Thorlabs OCT system will be demonstrated. Chemically and biologically safe material can be brought for scanning.


Biomedical Optics: Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging/ spectroscopy (SFDI/S) is a relatively new technique measures the differentiated response of remitted light from tissue, when patterns (sinusoidal intensity projections of varying spatial frequency) are projected on to it. This approach quantifies the effective Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) of tissue and relates this to light transport contributions from absorption and scattering.


Biomedical Optics: We develop pointwise and imaging techniques for measuring microcirculation blood flow using laser Doppler, speckle and multi-exposure speckle techniques. These methods are integrated with spectroscopic techniques for quantifying tissue chromophores (light absorbers). 


Neuroengineering: We develop new knowledge, methods and techniques for radical improvement of pre-planning, navigation, intervention and follow up in functional neurosurgery and neurology.


Systems Biology: The digital twin, combining physiological models for all main organs in the body into an interconnected, multi-level, and patient-specific model, useful for biomedical research, personalized medicine, and drug development.
