EE Professor Christine Hendon Elected to AIMBE

Hendon, who is an associate professor of electrical engineering, was cited for “developing optical imaging, spectroscopy, and processing tools for real time tracking and guidance of cardiac ablation therapy.” Her research is focused on biomedical optics and how optical imaging modalities can improve therapeutic procedures. She develops innovative medical imaging instruments that provide surgeons with a clear understanding of the tissue on which they are operating, including the heart, joints, and breast. She has worked on designing next-generation optical coherence tomography systems and integrated therapeutic catheters with near infrared spectroscopy, along with real-time processing algorithms to extract physiological information. In collaboration with colleagues at the Engineering School and at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, her group has developed integrative optics and therapeutic probes for improving the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
