As part of the School of Science and Technology Joint seminar programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing and Informatics Research Centres, Professor Kelvin Donne, University of Wales Trinity Saint David (Swansea Campus), presents: Computing Seminar: Simulation Strategies for Tissue Photonics.

Abstract

Light-based medical devices are used in a diverse range of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, both within the clinical context and increasingly for home-based use. Of critical concern to manufacturers of these devices is the requirement to understand the underlying processes and especially the need to optimise the energy delivery, both spectrally and temporally.

This talk will consider the simulation techniques available for modelling both the bio-chemical and thermal effects induced when light is incident on human tissue. Deterministic and probabilistic schemes for solving the Radiation Transfer Equation for low-energy photons will be considered, as well as methods for solving the time-dependent thermal diffusion equation.

Optimisation studies require fast parallel implementations of the algorithms, which include the Monte Carlo method and Boundary Element Method and three approaches to parallelisation will be presented. Clinical contexts will include fluorescence detection of basal cell carcinomas, and depilation of hair follicles.

All welcome.

This seminar will be hosted by Dr Richard Cant.
