      New Study Finds Federally-Funded Technology Saved Medicare $9 Billion

      A new study quantifying a 21-fold return on investment suggests an efficient — and non-partisan — method to cut healthcare spending is to invest in basic research. The paper tracks how a new technology aids doctors in reducing the number of unnecessary drug injections used to treat a blinding condition called wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). According to the study, Medicare has enjoyed $9 billion in savings over an eight year period from more efficient use of the effective, but expensive, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents used to treat wet AMD. This compares favorably to the approximately $400 million investment over ...

      EXALOS releases NEW High-Power 840nm Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) for Medical Imaging and Sensor applications: For SD-OCT applications, higher output power from the SLED allow for more asymmetric splitting ratios in the interferometer and therefore in lower losses for the received OCT signal, enabling higher acquisition speeds or higher sensitivity. Higher-power SLEDs also help realizing surgical ophthalmic systems or multi-modal imaging systems where the OCT path is shared and therefore experiences higher losses.

      Feature Of The Week 10/22/2017: Visualization and Detection of Ciliary Beating Pattern and Frequency in the Upper Airway using Phase Resolved Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography

      Ciliary motion plays a critical role in the overall respiratory health of the upper airway. These cilia beat at a native frequency and in a synchronized pattern to continuously transport foreign particulate trapped in a layer of mucous out of the upper airway. Disruption of ciliary motion can lead to severe respiratory diseases and compromised respiratory function. Currently, the study of cilia requires expensive high speed cameras and high powered microscopes which is unsuitable for in vivo imaging and diagnosis. Doppler based optical coherence tomography has the potential to visualize the microscopic motion of cilia during their beating cycle. We ...

      Feature Of The Week 10/15/2017: Optical coherence tomography detects necrotic regions and volumetrically quantifies multicellular tumor spheroids

      Three-dimensional (3D) tumor spheroid models have gained increased recognition as important tools in cancer research and anti-cancer drug development. However, currently available imaging approaches employed in high-throughput screening drug discovery platforms e.g. bright field, phase contrast, and fluorescence microscopies, are unable to resolve 3D structures deep inside (>50 μm) tumor spheroids. In this study, we established a label-free, non-invasive optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging platform to characterize 3D morphological and physiological information of multicellular tumor spheroids (MCTS) growing from ~250 μm up to ~600 μm in height over 21 days. In particular, tumor spheroids of two cell lines glioblastoma ...
