      Two PhD Studentships in Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering at the University College London

      A four year PhD studentship funded by the Royal Society is available to embark on an exciting project developing a computational platform for application in cutting edge biomedical imaging techniques, including optical coherence tomography and photoacoustic tomography. This project has two primary aims: to significantly increase the volumes of tissue within which light propagation can be modelled and to apply this model to address current challenges in biomedical imaging. The project will suit a student with a strong background in maths or physics, with programming experience a plus. The project supervisor (Dr Peter Munro) has developed the first three-dimensional model ...

      Feature Of The Week 07/01/2018: Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography with a Flexible Fiber Bundle

      We demonstrate in vivo endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in the forward direction using a flexible fiber bundle (FB). In comparison to current conventional forward-looking probe schemes, our approach simplifies the endoscope design by avoiding the integration of any beam steering components in the distal probe end due to two-dimensional scanning of a focused light beam over the proximal FB surface. We describe the challenges that arise when OCT imaging with an FB is performed, such as multimoding or cross coupling. The performance of different FBs varying in parameters, such as numerical aperture, core size, core structure, and flexibility ...

      Feature of the Week 06/24/2018: Duke University Researchers Show Exciting Advances in Live OCT Volumes in Immersive Virtual Reality

      Virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays are an attractive technology for viewing intrasurgical optical coherence tomography (OCT) volumes because they liberate surgeons from microscope oculars. We demonstrate real-time, interactive viewing of OCT volumes in a commercial HTC Vive immersive VR system using previously reported ray casting techniques. Furthermore, we show interactive manipulation and sectioning of volumes using handheld controllers and guidance of mock surgical procedures in porcine eyes exclusively within VR. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first immersive VR-OCT viewer with stereo ray casting volumetric renders, arbitrary sectioning planes, and live acquisition support. We believe VR-OCT volume ...
