Canadian Researchers Develop Low-Cost, Lens-Free Light-Field Microscope; Could Make Anatomic Pathology Labs Portable and More Affordable

Second-generation spectral fusion microscope captures light-field images in full color using artificial intelligence and mathematical models of light to develop large-scale 3D images Researchers in Canada have developed an inexpensive, lens-free microscope that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and mathematical models of light to develop three-dimensional (3D) images. This invention has the potential to make the clinical pathology laboratory portable and affordable. And the advancement could...

Use of 3D Computer-Assisted Diagnosis Raises Sensitivity of Malignant Melanoma Detection

New imaging technology might change flow of biopsies to dermatopathologists Dermatopathologists will be interested to learn about new imaging technology that significantly boosts the accuracy of this methodology to analyze images of the skin and diagnose malignant melanomas. Although still in the research stage, these technology advances demonstrate how advanced imaging solutions, in tandem with computer-aided diagnosis, may allow dermatologists to evaluate patients without the need to harvest...
