prof.dr. S. Manohar (Srirang)

Full Professor and Chair Multi-Modality Medical Imaging

About Me

Srirang Manohar is Professor and Chair, Multi-Modality Medical Imaging (M3I), a new research group. He has pioneered research into photoacoustic imaging of breast cancer. He also investigates the feasibility of the method hybrid with ultrasound imaging in image guidance of Radiofrequency Ablation, imaging ulcers in the diabetic foot, inflammation in joints in rheumatoid arthritis, and imaging of thyroid nodules. Prof. Manohar’s research spans technology development to early clinical assessment. The intended applications of the technologies span the range of ex vivo tissue imaging, minimally-invasive imaging to non-invasive. He has also done investigations into synthesis and characterization of gold nanoparticles, and in vitro and in vivo application of these and iron oxide nanoparticles in the context of providing contrast for photoacoustics.

Prof. Manohar is the coordinator of the Domain Imaging & Diagnostics at
the University of Twente. He also coordinates the H2020 project, PAMMOTH running from 2017-2021. He is also coordinator of the Dutch-India consortium Imaging Needles. He is member of the Organizing Committee for the conference “Photons plus Ultrasound: Imaging and Sensing held annually under auspices of SPIE (Photonics West, San Francisco, USA). He is also member of the Program Committee for the conference Opto-Acoustic Methods & Applications, European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO), Munich, Germany.
