Title of research assignment

Tissue Phantoms for Biomedical Imaging
Research abstract

The students will continue work on development and testing of realistic tissue phantoms to
simulate human tissue in optical and acoustic imaging experiments. They will fabricate
phantoms in different shapes, and measure the optical and acoustic properties.

Research activities/experience

Students will become familiar with various aspects of biomedical imaging, light and sound
propagation, and laboratory techniques.

Expectations of YSP

Students are expected to experiment with different approaches to developing the phantoms,
report their results to graduate students, and work with a large group of faculty, staff, and
students. Attendance at weekly lab meetings and participation in all aspects of running a
research laboratory is expected.

Special skills or interests that would help a participant with this assignment (i.e., an interest in physics, experience with specific
laboratory equipment, etc.)

An interest in biomedical work is important. In addition, we are looking for students who can
think creatively.

Lab safety/issues unique to your laboratory.

A general Lab Safety Overview will be presented by Environment Health and Safety to participants
prior to the beginning of lab assignments.
Students will be required to participate in a laser safety program at the beginning of their
work, and prior to using any of the lasers.

Suggested literature to be reviewed prior to beginning this research assignment.
