Optical Coherence Tomography Device For Characterization Of Atherosclerosis
The invention is a multimodal imaging system that includes an optical coherence tomography device using a particular laser source for accurate and in-depth imaging. The new technology provides a more accurate and detailed imaging solution that aids in reaching a more accurate assessment for the patient’s condition, thus determining the adequate intervention method. Clearly, providing an accurate atherosclerotic plaque identification and treatment option will contribute significantly to treating cardiovascular diseases, which happens to be a leading cause of death in many countries.

Imaging Cells In Flow Cytometer Using Spatial-Temporal Transformation
Flow cytometry analyzes multiple physical characteristics of a large population of single cells as cells flow in a fluid stream through an excitation light beam. Flow cytometers measure fluorescence and light scattering from which information about the biological and physical properties of individual cells are obtained. Although flow cytometers have massive statistical power due to their single cell resolution and high throughput, they produce no information about cell morphology or spatial resolution offered by microscopy, which is a much wanted feature missing in almost all flow cytometers.
