PULSE Lab attendees presented a combined total of six oral and poster presentations: 

  1. Kelley Kempski gave an oral presentation entitled “In vivo demonstration of photoacoustic-guided liver surgery”
  2. Michelle Graham gave an oral presentation entitled “Simultaneous visualization of nerves and blood vessels with multispectral photoacoustic imaging for intraoperative guidance of neurosurgeries”
  3. Derek Allman presented his poster “A deep learning-based approach to identify in vivo catheter tips during photoacoustic-guided cardiac interventions”
  4. Alycen Wiacek presented her poster Techniques to distinguish the ureter from the uterine artery in photoacoustic-guided hysterectomies”
  5. Eduardo González presented his poster “Visualization of custom drill bit tips in a human vertebra for photoacoustic-guided spinal fusion surgeries”
  6. Dr. Bell gave an oral presentation entitled “Deep Learning the Sound of Light to Guide Surgeries” (photo unavailable). She also served as session chair and as a member of the Technical Program Committee of Advanced Biomedical and Clinical Diagnostic and Surgical Guidance Systems XVII.

This work was presented in the following two tracks within the BiOS Conference:
