      New technology looks into the eye and brings cells into focus

      Eye doctors soon could use computing power to help them see individual cells in the back of a patient’s eye, thanks to imaging technology developed by engineers at the University of Illinois. Such detailed pictures of the cells, blood vessels and nerves at the back of the eye could enable earlier diagnosis and better treatment for degenerative eye and neurological diseases. New technology uses computational techniques to more clearly see individual rods and cones, the cells that detect light in the back of the eye | Graphic by Alex Jerez Roman The technique applies adaptive optics – the method astronomers use ...

      Nowhere to hide: New device sees bacteria behind the eardrum

      CHAMPAIGN, lll. — Doctors can now get a peek behind the eardrum to better diagnose and treat chronic ear infections, thanks to a new medical imaging device invented by University of Illinois researchers. The device could usher in a new suite of non-invasive, 3-D diagnostic imaging tools for primary-care physicians. The research team, led by University of Illinois electrical and computer engineering professor Stephen Boppart, will publish their advance in the online Early Edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the week of May 28. Ear infections are the most common conditions that pediatricians treat. Chronic ear ...

      Computing the best high-resolution 3-D tissue images - News from Beckman Institute at UIUC

      Real-time, 3-D microscopic tissue imaging could be a revolution for medical fields such as cancer diagnosis, minimally invasive surgery and ophthalmology. University of Illinois researchers have developed a technique to computationally correct for aberrations in optical tomography, bringing the future of medical imaging into focus. The computational technique could provide faster, less expensive and higher resolution tissue imaging to a broader population of users. The group describes its technique this week in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The computational technique could provide faster, less expensive and higher resolution tissue imaging to a ...
