ECBO 2019—European Conferences on Biomedical Optics

ECBO 2019—European Conferences on Biomedical Optics

In focus: A forum for medical and biomedical researchers who work with optics and photonics, sharing advancements in imaging, diagnostics, and therapeutics for clinical use.

ECBO 2019—European Conferences on Biomedical Optics is organized by SPIE


Presentations cover basic science, novel technology and applications in the areas of advanced microscopy, clinical and biomedical spectroscopy, diffuse optical imaging, molecular imaging, optical coherence tomography and other coherence techniques, therapeutic laser applications, laser-tissue interactions, opto-acoustic methods, and other novel biophotonics techniques.

Sponsored by SPIE and OSA, 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.
