Brief description This project brings together an international, multi-disciplinary team to develop innovative, high-resolution techniques to identify diseased tissue. Success will result in a new medical imaging technique allowing clinicians to quantify the mechanical properties of tissue, effectively creating a high-resolution image of what the tissue 'feels' like. This may help them to more accurately identify cancerous tissue during surgery and reduce rates of recurrence. It could aid in tissue engineering and regeneration and will provide a new database of tissue mechanical properties. The project will position Australia as a leader in this newly developing medical imaging technology, with significant potential for commercialisation.
