Primer on Optical Elastography

This page will contain notes from an SPIE short course that I teach at the annual SPIE Photonics West/BiOS symposium held at the end of January every year in San Jose, CA.

Specific topics that will be covered in this short course include:
  • The origins and statistics of laser speckle patterns
  • Basics of light scattering in dense, pseudo-ordered media
  • Optical elastography system design considerations
  • Tissue Mechanics in terms of strain energy functions
  • Generation of elastograms
  • Numerical Algorithms for Tracking Speckle Motion

This page is still under construction. Please check back later.
