BioOptics World magazine for September 2012 edition has been released. You can read latest news, design, development, and utilization of optical technologies in this issue. Here are feature articles for this month.
Sorting out microscope cameras
A wide range of camera features are combined in various ways with assorted image sensors (CCD, EMCCD, CMOS, and sCMOS) to yield the variety of options available in microscope cameras. Let’s look at how resolution, speed, and cost interact behind the scenes of photomicrographs.
MOLECULAR IMAGING/SURGICAL GUIDANCE
NIR image-guided surgery: Progress and needs for clinical application
Intraoperative imaging using near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence has the potential to revolutionize cancer surgery especially when targeted contrast agents and optimized camera systems become available.
Doubling up for brain imaging
A high-performance, low-cost system that combines two optical approaches for simultaneous application in dynamic brain imaging promises exciting insight for preclinical, and eventually for clinical, work.
OPTICAL DESIGN/LASER-TISSUE INTERACTION/BIOIMAGING
A detailed look at microoptics for biomedicine
Microoptics play a critical role in improving biomedical applications and are now enabling new advances in life sciences. Systems designers must understand their operation and application to leverage the advantages they offer.
