      Cornell University Receives NIH Grant for Overcoming the Multiple Scattering Limit in Optical Coherence Tomography

      Cornell University Received a 2022 NIH Grant for $378,003 for Overcoming the Multiple Scattering Limit in Optical Coherence Tomography. The principal investigator is Steven Adie. Below is a summary of the proposed work. Extending imaging depth is one of the grand challenges in optical microscopy, and many creative approaches are under development to mitigate the detrimental impact of the phenomenon of ‘optical scattering’ and enable deeper optical imaging in scattering media. Light propagating in dense tissue undergoes scattering events that scramble the phase of the propagating optical wavefront, and thus disrupts the constructive interference needed to focus/spatially localize ...

      Special Issue "Biomedical Applications of Optical Coherence Tomography" in the journal of Bioengineering

      Dear Colleagues, Since its invention in 1991, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has rapidly become one of the most important clinical tools in the field of ophthalmology. In recent years, applications of this inherently non-invasive and label-free three-dimensional imaging technique have extended far beyond retinal and corneal imaging. OCT applications are being increasingly used in medicine in fields including dermatology, endoscopy and neurology, and advances in system technology and image processing mean that the resultant images are approaching cellular resolution over a wide field of view. Through the constant development of new technologies and functional extensions, OCT continues to move into ...

      University of Southern California Received a 2022 NIH Grant for $623,326 for Cochlear mechanics in the mouse. The principal investigator is John Oghalai. Below is a summary of the proposed work. Sound pressure produces force across the mammalian cochlear partition, ultimately creating a vibratory traveling wave that propagates longitudinally up the cochlear duct. The key feature distinguishing this process from the non-mammalian cochlea is amplification, whereby forces produced by thousands of outer hair cells (OHCs) sharpen and amplify the traveling wave. Our overarching objective is to understand how the complex biomechanics of the 3D multi-cellular and acellular arrangement that ...
