Label-Free Nanoprobes For Long-Term Imaging Of Organelle Movements In Living Cells

To date, the most widely used technique used to monitor organelle movement in living cells is fluorescent imaging, which requires labelling of organelles. Prior organelle labelling causes disturbance in living cells, which may limit understanding of intracellular organelle movement. Furthermore, conventional fluorescence-based single molecule methods are prone to photobleaching, blinking, and low signal-to-noise ratios.

UCLA researchers in the Department of Radiological Sciences have developed a new MRI pulse sequence optimized for brain imaging.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Digital Imaging with Neural Networks

Standard digital cameras typically take images with under/overexposed regions because of their sensors’ limited dynamic range. The most common way to capture high dynamic range (HDR) images using these cameras is to take a series of low dynamic range (LDR) images at different exposures and then merge them into an HDR image. Producing a high dynamic range (HDR) image from a set of images with different exposures is a challenging process for dynamic scenes. A category of existing techniques first register the input images to a reference image and then merge the aligned images into an HDR image. However, the artifacts of the registration usually appear as ghosting and tearing in the final HDR images.

High Frequency Digital Frequency Domain Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging System For Applications On Tissues

The technology is a software/hardware combination designed to enhance sampling rate for frequency domain fluorescence lifetime imaging. Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) is a technique that uses signals emitted from fluorescent samples to construct images of those samples in near real time. An advantage to FLIM is its ability to image large fields of view, which makes it an attractive option for dynamical measurements of live biological tissues. The higher sampling rate available using this technology will allow for more information to be gleaned from biological samples, which may have a fluorescence band up to 1 GHz, advancing tissue imaging.
