    2. Computational high-resolution optical imaging of the living human retina

      Computational high-resolution optical imaging of the living human retina
      High-resolution in vivo imaging is of great importance for the fields of biology and medicine. The introduction of hardware-based adaptive optics (HAO) has pushed the limits of optical imaging, enabling high-resolution near diffraction-limited imaging of previously unresolvable structures 1 , 2 . In ophthalmology, when combined with optical coherence tomography, HAO has enabled a detailed three-dimensional visualization of photoreceptor distributions 3 , 4 and individual nerve fibre bundles 5 in the living human ...

    3. UIUC Receives NIH Grant for Intraoperative Label-Free Optical Molecular Imaging of Breast Tumor Margins.

      UIUC Receives NIH Grant  for Intraoperative Label-Free Optical Molecular Imaging of Breast Tumor Margins.
      The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Receives a 2015 NIH Grant for $490,333 for Intraoperative Label-Free Optical Molecular Imaging of Breast Tumor Margins. The principal investigator is Stephen Boppart. The program begain in 2012 and ends in 2017. Below is a summary of the proosed work. Margin status during the surgical treatment of solid tumors is the most critical factor in determining local recurrence rates. For breast cancer, breast conserving ...

    4. New technology looks into the eye and brings cells into focus

      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 patients 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 ...

    6. Noninvasive depth-resolved optical measurements of the tympanic membrane and middle ear for differentiating otitis media

      Noninvasive depth-resolved optical measurements of the tympanic membrane and middle ear for differentiating otitis media
      Objective/Hypothesis In this study, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is used to noninvasively and quantitatively determine tympanic membrane (TM) thickness and the presence and thickness of any middle-ear biofilm located behind the TM. These new metrics offer the potential to differentiate normal, acute, and chronic otitis media (OM) infections in pediatric subjects. Study Design Case series with comparison group. Methods The TM thickness of 34 pediatric subjects was acquired using ...

    7. Real-time automated thickness measurement of the in vivo human tympanic membrane using optical coherence tomography

      Real-time automated thickness measurement of the in vivo human tympanic membrane using optical coherence tomography
      Background: Otitis media (OM), an infection in the middle ear, is extremely common in the pediatric population. Current gold-standard methods for diagnosis include otoscopy for visualizing the surface features of the tympanic membrane (TM) and making qualitative assessments to determine middle ear content. OM typically presents as an acute infection, but can progress to chronic OM, and after numerous infections and antibiotic treatments over the course of many months, this ...

    9. Volumetric full-range magnetomotive optical coherence tomography

      Volumetric full-range magnetomotive optical coherence tomography
      Magnetomotive optical coherence tomography (MM-OCT) can be utilized to spatially localize the presence of magnetic particles within tissues or organs. These magnetic particle-containing regions are detected by using the capability of OCT to measure small-scale displacements induced by the activation of an external electromagnet coil typically driven by a harmonic excitation signal. The constraints imposed by the scanning schemes employed and tissue viscoelastic properties limit the speed at which conventional ...
