Mission Statement
The objective of the Optical Diagnostics Laboratory is to bridge the gap between science and medicine and explore the development of new optical and other imaging technologies and their applications in clinical situations. Optical techniques, such as Optical Coherence Tomography and Raman Spectroscopy, have shown great promise over the years. They are, however, still in their infancy and require further development and integration with current medical practice. This area has the potential to significantly improve the diagnostic options of mern health care systems and directly impact patient prognosis and outcome. The ODx Lab strives to integrate the identification of diagnostic challenges, development of new diagnostic technologies, clinical validation and human studies and transfer to industry. Current interests include the implementation of diagnostic technologies for the early detection of pre-malignant and cancerous lesions of the skin and the gynecological and gastrointestinal tracts which are characterized by either high or rising incidence at Cyprus. Expertise in engineering, science and medicine as well as strong ties to the local and international scientific and medical community play an integral role in reinforcing and augmenting the scientific potential of the group. The laboratory also aims to foster an educational environment that promotes independent and creative thinking in a multi-disciplinary environment for both undergraduate and graduate student and to prepare them for a successful career in science or medicine with more relevance to real life problems.
