Role of Optical Imaging in Identifying Brain Lesions

The technique of optical imaging measures changes in metabolism and blood flow from the brain surface. Instead of detecting changes in the electrical or magnetic structures of the neurons, like EEG, MEG and fMRI do, optical imaging observes changes in the reflectance of light from the brain surface. Optical imaging is a technology that helps […]

Photoacoustics: The New Form of Fluoroscopy

Numerous innovative approaches are being introduced into mouse imaging, and one promising modality seems to be the technology of photoacoustic imaging. This system works by combining tissue penetration and acoustic imaging resolution with flexibility and sensitivity of optical imaging. That being said, it proves to be a great technology to be applied to clinical trials […]
