      Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in In Vivo Microscopy at Massachusetts General Hosptial

      Employer Description Until recently, visualizing the architectural and cellular morphology of human tissue has required histopathological examination. Samples would be excised from the patient, processed, sectioned, stained and viewed under a microscope. In addition to being invasive, time consuming and costly, the static nature of conventional pathology prohibits the study of biological dynamics and function. The Tearney Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital has led the way in transforming the current diagnostic paradigm through the invention and translation of new noninvasive, high-resolution optical imaging modalities that enable disease diagnosis from living patients without excising tissues from the body.

      Feature Of The Week 11/26/2016: Tsinghua University Demonstrates Optical Computing Technique and Achieves High Speed OCT of 10 Mega-A-Scans/Second.

      In the past few decades, OCT has been applied in a wide range of applications including clinical and material research areas. For some biomedical applications such as surgical guidance, real-time volumetric OCT (4D-OCT) imaging is in high demand. However, for high definition volumetric imaging in real time, i.e., 1000 pixels along 3 spatial dimensions and 30 volumetric imaging per second, the data flow will be 1000×1000×1000×30=30GVoxel/s. To process these massive data is a big challenge to the performance of current GPUs and CPUs. Professor Ping Xue, Postdoc Xiao Zhang and their colleagues from Tsinghua ...
