Journal of Biomedical Optics Modulim’s Founder and VP of R&D Guest Editors for Special Section on SFDI Technology

July 2019

The Journal of Biomedical Optics recently featured a special section on Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging (SFDI). Our founder & CTO, David Cuccia, and our VP of R&D, Amaan Mazhar, served as guest editors for the special section. The section includes fourteen articles that covered a number of topics related to the use and development of SFDI. They comprise review articles on algorithms and applications of SFDI, as well as some of the latest advances in instrumentation and computation. The section includes cutting edge work discussing the use of SFDI for wound assessment, intra-operative guidance, and oncological research.

Of particular note is the comprehensive review article about SFDI in 2019 co-authored by David and Amaan. This special section is an important marker of how SFDI continues to grow as a quantitative method used by researchers to assess tissue properties.
