Tracking radiation treatment in real time promises safer, more effective cancer therapy

Via University of Michigan | January 3, 2023

Radiation, used to treat half of all cancer patients, can be measured during treatment for the first time with precise 3D imaging developed at the University of Michigan.

By capturing and amplifying tiny sound waves created when X-rays heat tissues in the body, medical professionals can map the radiation dose within the body, giving them new data to guide treatments in real time. It’s a first-of-its-kind view of an interaction doctors have previously been unable to “see.”

“Once you start delivering radiation, the body is pretty much a black box,” said Xueding Wang, the Jonathan Rubin Collegiate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, professor of radiology and corresponding author of the study in Nature Biotechnology. He also leads U-M’s Optical Imaging Laboratory… Continue reading.

Via AIMBE | March 30, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Xueding Wang, Ph.D., Professor, Biomedical Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, to its College of Fellows.

Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. The College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers. College membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering and medicine research, practice, or education” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education.”

Dr. Wang was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for “contributions in research and service to medical ultrasound and biophotonics, with an emphasis on photoacoustic imaging.
