    Researchers peer deep inside tissue with new high-resolution techniques

    One of the challenges in optical imaging is to visualize the inside of tissue in high resolution. Traditional methods allow researchers to look to a depth of approximately 1 millimeter. Researchers at Delft University of Technology have now developed a new method that can penetrate up to four times as deep, up to around 4 millimeters. The healthcare sector in particular may benefit from the new technique in the future. The new imaging method brings together a number of existing techniques. The most important of these is optical coherence tomography , a technique ophthalmologists use to image the retina. OCT is ...
