Lecture title: Optical imaging in ophthalmology
Non-invasive imaging of the eye is an important component of modern ophthalmic care. Visualization of the retina, the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye, and the optic nerve head, where the axons exit the eye toward the brain, is especially important for diagnosis and tracking of diseases causing blindness. In this talk, optical imaging techniques commonly used for retinal imaging will be described generally, followed by a detailed description of Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography. Our recent work on the development of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) for real time image processing and 3D display with high speed FDOCT will also be presented.

Dr. Marinko Sarunic received a B.A.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Simon Fraser University in 1998, and a M.A.Sc. Thesis in 2001. Completed in October of 2001, the title of Marinko's thesis was "BiIn: A Prototype Bimetallic Laser Activated Thermal Resist for Microfabrication". While completing his thesis work, Marinko joined JDS Uniphase in January of 2001 to develop optical MEMS switches for small and middle fabric networks. In a August of 2002, Marinko left JDS to pursue his doctoral degree at Duke University under the direction of Dr. Joseph Izatt. Marinko's research at Duke University applied engineering principles and telecommunications equipment to biological imaging using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). The title of his doctoral dissertation was "Advanced systems design for Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD OCT) systems", and included details on the development of a second harmonic spectral domain OCT system, full field quantitative nanoscale imaging, and phase processing algorithms to extend the imaging depth of FDOCT systems to accommodate the ocular anterior segment. During the summer of 2006, Marinko joined the California Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral researcher in the Biophotonics group lead by Dr. Changhuei Yang. At CalTech, Marinko's research included the development of a forward image endoscopic probe for use during ophthalmic surgery. Presently, Dr. Sarunic is an associate professor at Simon Fraser University, where his research interests include biomedical imaging, optical coherence tomography (OCT), microscopy, low-coherence interferometry, micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems, BioMEMS.
