Whole body imaging solution receives commercial version

Whole body imaging solution receives commercial version
Continuing a 30 year tradition of breakthrough skin imaging innovations, Canfield Scientific completed the commercial launch of the whole body, 3D imaging system called the VECTRA WB360, at the 75th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Orlando, Florida. Designed primarily for dermatology, this state-of-the-art system simultaneously captures the entire exposed skin surface using 46 stereo vision pods and produces a single high-resolution 3D image.

LungVision Navigation System receives FDA Clearance

LungVision Navigation System receives FDA Clearance
Body Vision Medical has announced that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market LungVision, a novel imaging system that enables accurate real-time navigation and lesion localisation during bronchoscopic procedures. LungVision, the first product based on the Body Vision platform, demonstrated outstanding results through multicenter clinical trials in the U.S.

Lasers reveal live full-body scans of small animals

Lasers reveal live full-body scans of small animals
Biomedical engineers are now able to take a live, holistic look at the inner workings of a small animal with enough resolution to see active organs, flowing blood, circulating melanoma cells and firing neural networks. The technique dubbed 'single-impulse photoacoustic computed tomography (SIP-PACT)' uses the best of both light and ultrasound to peer inside living animals.

Multi-modality imaging probe helps avoid biopsies

Multi-modality imaging probe helps avoid biopsies
In an important step toward endoscopic diagnosis of cancer, researchers have developed a handheld fibre optic probe that can be used to perform multiple nonlinear imaging techniques without the need for tissue staining. The new multimodal imaging probe uses an ultrafast laser to create nonlinear optical effects in tissue that can reveal cancer and other diseases. A newly developed handheld fibre optic probe can perform multiple microscopy techniques without the need for tissue staining.

Lowering the cost of medical laser cooling

Lowering the cost of medical laser cooling
In order to keep laser optics stable and at peak operating performance, Laird has introduced thermoelectric modules (TEMs) and thermoelectric assemblies (TEAs), which control the operating temperature of the medical laser to within defined parameters.

Tissue expansion allows mapping of brain circuits

Tissue expansion allows mapping of brain circuits
MIT researchers have developed a way to make extremely high-resolution images of tissue samples, at a fraction of the cost of other techniques that offer similar resolution. The new technique relies on expanding tissue before imaging it with a conventional light microscope. Two years ago, the MIT team showed that it was possible to expand tissue volumes 100-fold, resulting in an image resolution of about 60 nanometers.

Nanoscale X-ray sensor improves imaging and radiotherapy

Nanoscale X-ray sensor improves imaging and radiotherapy
Using a tiny device known as an optical antenna, researchers have created an X-ray sensor that is integrated onto the end of an optical fibre just a few tens of microns in diameter. By detecting X-rays at an extremely small spatial scale, the sensor could be combined with X-ray delivering technologies to enable high-precision medical imaging and therapeutic applications.

LED-based imaging device detects skin damage

LED-based imaging device detects skin damage
To eradicate any cancer cells that may potentially remain after surgery or chemotherapy, many breast cancer patients also undergo radiation therapy. All patients experience unfortunate side effects including skin irritation, and sometimes peeling and blistering. Patients can also develop permanent discoloration of the skin and thickening of the breast tissue months, or even years, after treatment.

Fluorescent probe could reveal cancer

Fluorescent probe could reveal cancer
A fluorescent probe developed by Michigan Tech chemist Haiying Liu illuminates the enzyme beta-galactosidase in a cell culture, which could help cancer surgeons. What if you could plaster cancer cells with glowing "Here We Are" signs, so surgeons could be confident that they'd removed every last speck of a tumor? That's what Haiying Liu has in mind for his new fluorescent probe.

Low-cost method produces light-based lab-on-a-chip devices

A fabrication process could make it easier and less expensive to incorporate optical sensing onto lab-on-a-chip devices. These devices integrate laboratory functions onto a plastic or glass "chip" typically no more than a few square centimeters in size, allowing automated testing in the doctor's office or various types of chemical or biological analysis with portable instruments.
