      NIH taps Bruce J. Tromberg, Ph.D., to lead the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

      National Institutes of Health Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., has selected Bruce J. Tromberg, Ph.D., as director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). A pioneering leader in the field of bio photonics, Dr. Tromberg is currently a professor at the University of California at Irvine (UCI), with dual appointments in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Surgery. He is also director of UCI’s Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic, an interdisciplinary research, teaching and clinical center for optics and photonics in biology and medicine. He is expected to join NIH in ...

    2. Optical Coherence Tomography Poised to Improve Diagnostics

      Optical Coherence Tomography Poised to Improve Diagnostics
      Just over 15 years ago, using technology that would revolutionize the telecommunications industry, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed an elegant optical imaging technique—optical coherence tomography (OCT). The technique, analogous to ultrasound, uses near-infrared light rather than sound waves to create images. Light reflects off of tissue and is captured by a detector. Image analysis software combines the signals from the reflected light to form an image. Initially, researchers used OCT to examine the fine structures of the eye’s retina. Ophthalmologists embraced OCT because it gave them a noninvasive way to view the retina and at ...
