Multimodal imaging and diagnosis of skin cancer. A combination of OCT, photoacoustics (optoacoustics) and Raman spectroscopy is employed. Presumably conventional ultrasound will be added as an extra. The challenge is to combine all these modalities in a single scanning unit, synchronize them and "stitch" the images together. The large amount of data will also allow machine learning or deep learning to either enhance, classify or segment the images (for example, the skin layers).
Good knowledge in optics, laser, and spectroscopy. Interest in AI as a tool in categorization and diagnostics.
