Bioengineering Imaging Group

The Bioengineering Imaging Group is a world-leader in the development of the imaging needle technology for clinical use.    

Our team design and build highly miniaturised imaging probes to help diagnose disease and enable safer surgery. Our imaging needles consist of a tiny fibre-optic probe encased in a hypodermic needle. These devices are able to provide guidance deep within the body with fluorescence imaging and optical coherence tomography.

Based in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics (external link)(CNBP), which is part of the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS), the Bioengineering Imaging Group has strong research programs in the development of new optical imaging technologies and clinical translation.

Our research team is a multi-disciplinary group of engineers, physicists and computer scientists who work together with clinicians. Our skills complement the expertise already within the CNBP. Together, we are exploring novel applications and deployment of optical fibre sensing and imaging across medicine and physiology.
