    2. UIUC Publication on a Handheld OCT Scanner for Primary Care Diagnostics On Cover of IEEE Transactions in Biomedical Engineering

      UIUC Publication on a Handheld OCT Scanner for Primary Care Diagnostics On Cover of IEEE Transactions in Biomedical Engineering
      Dr. Stephen Boppart's publication on Handheld Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner for Primary Care Diagnostics On Cover of IEEE Transactions in BIomedical Engineering. The goal of this study is to develop an advanced point-of-care diagnostic instrument for use in a primary care office using handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT). This system has the potential to enable earlier detection of diseases and accurate image-based diagnostics. Our system was designed to be ...

    6. Non-invasive optical interferometry for the assessment of biofilm growth in the middle ear

      Non-invasive optical interferometry for the assessment of biofilm growth in the middle ear
      Otitis media (OM) is the most common illness in children in the United States. Three-fourths of children under the age of three have OM at least once. Children with chronic OM, including OM with effusion and recurrent OM, will often have conductive hearing loss and communication difficulties, and need surgical treatment. Recent clinical studies provide evidence that almost all chronic OM cases are accompanied by a bacterial biofilm behind the ...

  2. About Blue Highway, LLC

    Blue Highway, LLC

    Blue Highway is a wholly owned subsidiary of Welch Allyn, a privately held leader in front-line diagnostic healthcare. Officially, BLUE HIGHWAY was formed to "create economic value through new customer insight, products or services, policy and regulatory insight, or business models". In plain language, BLUE HIGHWAY exists to innovate. And innovation is really about capitalizing on invention. The way we see it, there are three kinds of innovation: Incremental innovation – The evolutionary improvement of the technology for an existing practice (e.g., a device to measure blood pressure on the “inflate” instead of the “deflate”). It is based on known needs of customers and sustains or increases market share. Radical innovation – Developing completely new technology for an existing practice (e.g., a device to measure blood pressure without a cuff). It is based on predicted needs of customers and explodes a market. Breakthrough innovation – Inventing revolutionary new technology for new clinical practice (e.g., a device to measure a new vital sign that will replace/displace blood pressure measuring completely) that has the potential to spawn entirely new markets.  At BLUE HIGHWAY, our primary focus is on disruptive and breakthrough innovations in our core technical areas.
