Basic Science and Translational Research - Abstract Session

Saturday, April 14 | 1:30 PM - 5:30 PM | Room: Cortez CD

Participants Clinicians, engineers, scientists, researchers, developers.

Background Requirements Basic knowledge of light-tissue interactions.

Educational Needs/Expected Learning Objectives These sessions will promote understanding of fundamental light-tissue interactions, laboratory evaluation of new technologies and methodologies, and applications of these technologies and methodologies in in-vitro and in-vivo studies.  Ideas presented in this session are expected to impact clinical research studies and medical device development. Participants will learn about:

  • Fundamental light-tissue interactions and measurements of tissue properties
  • Biological response of cells and tissues to low-light therapeutics
  • New diagnostic and treatment approaches
  • Preclinical evaluation of novel therapeutic approaches using light and energy-based devices
  • Micro-, meso-, and macroscopic approaches to assess the biological tissue response to light and energy-based devices
  • First-in-man application of light and energy-based technologies
  • Methods and technologies used for monitoring therapeutic interventions

Hot Topics

  • New treatment approaches for lipolysis, including cryolipolysis
  • Structural and advanced functional imaging
  • Image-guided interventions
  • Advances in optical coherence tomography and multiphoton microscopy
  • Low-light therapeutic approaches to eradicate bacteria and modulate cell behavior
