      Feature Of The Week 04.05.2018: Fiber-Coupled Multimodal Imaging for Non-Destructive Assessment of Vascular Biomaterials

      We present a novel fiber-based imaging platform that allows simultaneous fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIm) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) using a double-clad fiber. This platform acquires co-registered images showing structural and compositional contrast in unlabeled biological samples by scanning the fiber tip across the sample surface. In this Letter, we report a characterization of each modality and show examples of co-registered FLIm and OCT images acquired from a lemon segment and a section of human coronary artery. The close comparison between the combined FLIm and OCT images and a co-registered histology section provides a qualitative validation of the technique and ...

      Teledyne SP Devices Announces Peer-to-Peer Streaming Support

      Teledyne SP Devices today announced the release of peer-to-peer data transfer firmware and software. With this solution data can be transferred from a digitizer to a peripheral device at astonishing peak rates of up to 6.8 GBytes/s. Many modern data acquisition systems produce vast amounts of data which needs to be processed. The data rates are often extremely high and therefore application-specific processing requires high-performance processing units such as field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) or graphics processing units (GPUs). Both methods have advantages but the latter offers cost-efficient processing capabilities and is programmed in CUDA™ or OpenCL™ supporting parallel ...

      PhD Scholarship: Multimodal optical coherence tomography / multi-spectral photo-acoustic imaging at University of Kent

      Supervisor: Adrian Bradu A funded PhD position is available in the field of Biomedical Imaging. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and photo-acoustic (PA) imaging are hot topics in the biomedical imaging field. They can offer structural and functional information of biological tissues with excellent resolution and high contrast. Both techniques have the potential to be applied to the early detection of cancer or examining vascular and skin diseases. By measuring back-scattered photons and a loading mechanism, the tissue mechanical properties can be reconstructed using OCT. At the same time, using PA measurements, it is also possible to reconstruct the mechanical properties ...

      Abbott (NYSE: ABT) today announced the initiation of a clinical trial evaluating long-term outcomes of patients who undergo stent implantation guided by high-resolution light-based imaging technology—called optical coherence tomography (OCT)—compared to a common X-ray-guided technique called angiography. The trial (ILUMIEN IV) is the first large-scale randomized global study using Abbott's OCT imaging in patients with high-risk, complex coronary artery disease. Patients in the study will be randomized to either OCT-guided or traditional angiography to guide placement of one or more XIENCE everolimus-eluting coronary stents. The first patient was enrolled by Franco Fabbiocchi, M.D., director of Invasive ...
