      Researchers use non-visible imaging approach to reveal secrets of ancient Egyptian mummies

      In addition to the multispectral camera, the team of researchers utilized optical coherence tomography (OCT), which uses similar wavelengths to multispectral imaging, but works at a much smaller scale, according to UCL. The system is arranged so that light travels a similar distance along two paths, one a reference arm and the other interrogating the sample. As light penetrates the sample and reflects back off different layers, the distance it travels changes. This change in distance is measured precisely using interferometry. It can image to depths of around a millimeter and give micrometer resolution, thus making it suitable for imaging ...

      3D imaging technology inspects hard-to-reach spaces

      With recent developments in fiber-based optical 3D metrology , the scope of 3D imaging applications has been expanded to include hard-to-reach spaces such as tubes and bores. 3D imaging can be accomplished in various ways, including single and multi-camera methods, structured light systems, laser triangulation, pattern projection, and those based on the Time of Flight principle. 3D vision systems such as these add a new dimension to machine vision systems, bringing the development of new applications for industry. Advances in high-speed fiber-based low-coherence interferometry, a high-resolution 3D measurement technology, have resulted in the development of new in-line inspection applications. One company ...

    3. Endoscope employs custom camera for in-vivo cancer detection

      Endoscope employs custom camera for in-vivo cancer detection

      Early cancer detection is often performed by removing tissue from a patient during a biopsy procedure and then examining the cell structure under a microscope. Identifying which tissue to be removed, however, is not an exact science and patients often need to return for a second biopsy. Since this procedure is both painful and expensive, the ability to ensure the correct tissue is removed speeds the diagnostic procedure while reducing patient stress and expense. To increase the certainty of obtaining cancerous tissue, LLTech (Paris, France; www.lltechimaging.com) is developing a hand-held rigid endoscope that provides surgeons and pathologists to ...

    4. Fast diagnostic cancer imaging technique displayed at Photonics West 2014

      Fast diagnostic cancer imaging technique displayed at Photonics West 2014

      One of the numerous technologies and applications being highlighted at Photonics West 2014 was a non-invasive optical imaging system used to quickly obtain images at the cellular level to assist in diagnoses and biopsies. CAReIOCA began in 2012 as a collaborative project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. The project saw the development of an imaging system with the purpose of providing a medical tool for better localization and analysis of cancer biopsies in the operating room in order to "reduce failure and reoperation rates in pre-operative diagnosis." CAReIOCA’s technical partners, LLTech , CMOSIS, and Adimec collaborated ...

    5. Silicon Valley imaging outfit forges academic partnership in Ireland

      Silicon Valley imaging outfit forges academic partnership in Ireland

      Compact Imaging (Mountain View, CA, USA) has formed a two-year research collaboration with academics at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUI; Galway, Ireland) and University of Limerick (Limerick, Ireland) to further develop the company's optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was first commercialized more than a decade ago for use in ophthalmic and medical diagnostic imaging. But Compact Imaging claims that its multiple-reference optical coherence tomography (MRO) is very different in that it will enable the development of small cell phone size, OCT-based devices. The collaborative agreement, led by and supported by Galway University Foundation ...

    6. Medical Imaging - FPGA-based processing transforms high-speed OCT

      Medical Imaging - FPGA-based processing transforms high-speed OCT
      n medical image-processing systems such as those used for retinal imaging, 3-D images need to be generated at high speeds. One of the most common techniques is optical coherence tomography (OCT), an optical signal-processing method that uses relatively long-wavelength light (on the order of 800 nm) to penetrate the object to be examined. In OCT systems, this light is first optically split into two paths: a sample path used to illuminate the object and reference path. Light reflected from the object is combined with the reference beam, resulting in an interference pattern. This interference pattern contains information that can be ...
