Jennifer Barton, professor of biomedical engineering and interim director of the BIO5 Institute, collaborated with Raymond Kostuk of the department of electrical and computer engineering to develop a novel method and device to detect and diagnose ovarian cancer. Their approach is based on a volume holographic imaging system.
They have successfully completed a clinical trial using a bench-top version of the device and are currently developing a handheld rigid endoscope version.
