A study led by Xi Chen, a postdoctoral fellow working with CCIL member Gabriel Popescu, Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, proposed a new, non-destructive tomography method that is able to perform under fewer limitations. The proposed technique, named “Wolf phase tomography” after the late Emil Wolf, a pioneer in the field of optical coherence, may open new avenues for medical applications involving phenotypic screening, cancer histopathology, and 3D imaging of the tumor microenvironment.
