      OCT system to examine priceless paintings
      A team of researchers from Nottingham Trent University have received more than £600,000 of funding to develop a new Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system that they hope will become a tool used by art galleries around the world. The funding was received from the Science and Heritage Programme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the EPSRC. Since 2004, Dr Haida Liang from the university’s School of Science and Technology has led research into the application of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for the non-invasive examination of paintings.

    2. 3D retinal imaging system

      3D retinal imaging system
      New device could identify structural changes in retinas. People with undiagnosed eye disease could have earlier assessments and treatment with new retinal imaging techniques normally used in scientific laboratories. This is the aim of a research programme at the Wellcome Laboratories for Vision Sciences at City University London. A team led by Steve Gruppetta, an academic fellow in the Department of Optometry and Visual Science, is developing a high-resolution 3D retinal imaging instrument that is inexpensive and compact enough for use in any optometrist or GP office. The machines usually used by optometrists and GPs are inexpensive but produce low-resolution ...

    3. Spotting the signs: Improving resolution of systems used to image human tissue could help early identification of life-threatening diseases

      Spotting the signs: Improving resolution of systems used to image human tissue could help early identification of life-threatening diseases
      Researchers at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have developed a new means to ensure that a screening technique using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) systems can be relied upon by clinicians so that they can accurately spot early signs of cancer. OCT is an increasingly popular method for looking beneath the surface of certain materials, notably human tissue. Although it can only be used to image tissue at depths of a few millimetres, it can produce higher-resolution images than either MRI or ultrasound, making it suitable for detecting changes in tissue structure that can indicate the early stages of cancer.

      Medical venture - Michelson Diagnostics
      Orpington-based medical-imaging firm Michelson Diagnostics (MDL) has raised more than £350k from a consortium of investors from the London Business Angels (LBA) network. The money will be used to support multi-centre clinical trials of its new hand-held multi-beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging probe, which the company plans to launch in May or June this year.

    5. Medical Venture - Michelson Diagnostics (MDL)

      Orpington-based medical-imaging firm Michelson Diagnostics (MDL) has raised more than £350k from a consortium of investors from the London Business Angels (LBA) network. The money will be used to support multi-centre clinical trials of its new hand-held multi-beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging probe, which the company plans to launch in May or June this year. The money will also support international commercial growth. MDL received early-stage funding of £600k in October 2007 and a further £600k in July 2008, in rounds led by London Seed Capital with Catapult Venture Managers and London Business Angels.
