Our New Paper on Imaging Human Lactation Published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics

Author: Thomas O'Sullivan

Journal of Biomedical Optics Cover

Our research on measuring changes in breast physiology following breastfeeding was published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics!  In this paper we show, for the first time, that diffuse optical imaging reveals significant changes in the long-term composition of the breast when a mother finishes breastfeeding for the last time.
