    Automated Imaging of the Eye Within Arm’s Reach

    Biomedical engineers and ophthalmologists from Duke University, USA, have designed and demonstrated a hands-free automated version of a standard desktop optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanner. The research team believes that the setup may expand the valuable technology’s reach to primary care offices and emergency departments. In proof-of-concept demonstrations, the scanner, which is attached to a robotic arm, produced images of the cornea and retina that are comparable to standard tabletop systems—in less than 10 seconds (Nat. Biomed. Eng., doi: 10.1038/s41551-021-00753-6 ).
