Portable Broadband Diffuse Optical Spectroscopic Imaging Device For Non-Invasive Tissue Characterization
Tech ID: 22158 / UC Case 2011-430-0
The diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging (DOSI) device is a tissue spectroscopy instrument designed to measure absorption and scattering properties of tissues. These absorption and scattering spectra are dependent upon the functional and structural composition of the tissue under study. The use of non-ionizing radiation probes the tissues below the surface non-invasively. While the idea of optical tissue spectroscopy is not unique, researchers at the University of California, Irvine have developed a unique compact modular platform that provides high portability yet retains the high information content of spectroscopic imaging of tissues.
Breast cancer detection, therapeutic monitoring, critical care medicine, exercise physiology, functional brain monitoring, vascular reactivity assessment.
This networkable/scalable/compact/miniature multi-frequency and spectral broadband tissue spectrometer has been developed for greater portability that allows for imaging with full broadband information content.
