James Fujimoto’s primary research focus is biomedical imaging with OCT and advanced laser technologies. His research team was responsible for the invention and development of OCT, and today they push the boundaries of high-speed and high-resolution imaging, functional Doppler flow and angiography, as well as polarization-sensitive imaging methods. Fujimoto’s current research involves biomedical imaging, OCT, advanced laser technologies and applications in diverse areas including ophthalmology, endoscopy, cancer detection, surgical guidance and developmental biology.
