Non-Invasive Instrument for Skin Cancer Screening

Andor Newton camera powers combined RS-OCT probe capable of both morphological and biochemical characterization of skin cancers. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in humans, with annual rates continuing to climb from their current estimate of just over three million new cases each year. Although all skin cancers share the likelihood of a favorable outcome if early diagnosis and complete resection are achieved, diagnosis is invasive, subjective, lengthy, and expensive, as it involves expert visual inspection, biopsy, and histopathology.

3D Visualization in Geospatial Analysis

The past decade has seen an explosion of observations from airborne and satellite-based multiand hyperspectral sensors, as well as from synthetic-aperture radar and LiDAR. Distilling useful information from this wealth of raw data is the domain of geospatial analysis, the collection of analytical, statistical, and heuristic methods for extracting information from georeferenced data. This information is important in serving the needs of a diverse set of industries including environmental conservation, oil and gas exploration, defense and intelligence, agriculture, coastal monitoring, forestry, and mining.

The GigE Vision® Interface Standard: Transforming Medical Imaging

Live, high-resolution imaging is increasingly being leveraged to enhance operating procedures. It can improve the precision of physicians and their instruments, and minimize the invasiveness of many procedures. Increasingly, one small component in a vision system — the interfacing technology — is providing answers to the most common of these challenges.

CCD Scientific Cameras

Photometrics (Tucson, AZ) has introduced CoolSNAP™ MYO and CoolSNAP™ KINO CCD cameras, which are designed to discern finer details in biological samples under lower light levels. The MYO, capable of cooling to 0°C, features a fan that can be disabled. The KINO is cooled to 20°C without a fan, making it suitable for sensitive applications where vibration is not tolerated. The cameras provide 2.8 megapixel imagery with 75% peak quantum efficiency. Additional features include 4.54 μm pixel pitch, a rate of 6.2 frames per second, and a USB 2.0 interface.
