New Solution: Non-invasive in vivo tissue imaging with functional optical coherence tomography (OCT)


10 August 2016

Researchers at the University of Dundee, working in collaboration with the University of Washington, have developed functional OCT; a non-invasive and high resolution in vivo imaging technique. The technology enables ultrafast imaging of tissue structure and provides information on functional parameters that correlate with the pathological status of the tissue.

The technology can both reduce and refine animal use, by enabling longitudinal animal studies, by allowing earlier diagnosis, and by avoiding the need for tissue biopsies or more invasive tests. Additionally, functional OCT allows for more complete data collection as individual animals can be tracked over time.

The Solution providers are now seeking partners with access to in vivo animal data to assess the utility of their imaging methodology in a variety of applications.
