Professor Hamid Dehghani is Professor of Medical Imaging at the School of Computer Science and the Healthcare Technologies Institute (HTI). His research focusses on non-invasive imaging and measurement of physiological information from biological tissue.
As a part of his interdisciplinary work, Hamid is involved with the following University-wide activities:
BitMap (Brain injury and trauma monitoring using advanced photonics), led by Professor Dehghani, is an innovative new Horizon 2020-funded project, which is developing a suite of light based non-invasive devices that can provide essential information about brain health.
The project aims to improve the treatment and care of those suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and neonates with brain injury from pregnancy or birthing complications. The project is also motivated by the clinical evidence that such devices would lead to significantly improved healthcare and reduced socioeconomic impact.
