      WiOptix, Inc. Medical Imaging Technology
      WiOptix, Inc. (WOI) is a company focused on producing highly accurate and low cost systems for early cancer diagnosis and imaging-guided surgery. Our technique uses light to examine cells/tissues in vivo for abnormalities without relying on a surgical biopsy. The WOI systems generate real-time, cellular-level, 3-D images using small optical probes (less than 5mm in diameter). This major improvement in optical imaging is based on the proprietary technology developed at the University of Florida’s Biophotonics & Microsystems Lab under the leadership of Dr. Huikai Xie.

      Still evolving, OCT technology has revolutionized diagnostics
      Since the early 1990s, optical coherence tomography has revolutionized the way retinal and glaucoma surgeons approach diagnostics in their practices, and it continues to show promise for additional applications. When the technology for optical coherence tomography (OCT) was first developed in 1991, surgeons were impressed by the precise imaging created by this modality but questioned if it would become clinically indispensable. Now, many cannot imagine their practices without it. “At first I was

      Start-up unveils real-time 3D imager

      Heliotis, the latest spin-out from the Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique (CSEM) in Switzerland, is starting its commercial life with a formidable goal. Using its parallel optical low-coherence tomography (pOCT) technology, the firm hopes to become a leader in the field of real-time 3D imaging with micrometer precision.Surface imaging pOCT is a non-invasive and non-contact imaging technique which uses interferometry to acquire 3D surface relief (topographic) or internal slices (tomographic) images in real-time. Heliotis' trick is to use a 2D CMOS sensor array where every pixel acquires and processes the optical signal in parallel."The CMOS sensor ...

      OCT Medical Imaging Inc Startup Company Profile
      OCT Medical Imaging is working to market devices that record more detailed images than ultrasound. X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, PET scans, ultrasound. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) uses coherence gating to select minimum backscattered photons for image reconstruction. Axial and lateral resolutions are determined by the source coherence length and numerical aperture of the sampling lens, respectively. While axial resolution can be improved using a broadband light source, there is a trade-off between lateral resolution and focusing depth because a beam with a long focal depth and narrow lateral width cannot be produced simultaneously - high lateral resolution requires a large numerical ...
