Our custom lens assemblies are designed to be used in all types of medical imaging. Medical imaging is the process of creating images of the human body, from the internal organs, to skeletal imaging, to microscopic diagnostic imaging. Universe Kogaku manufactures devices used in endoscope couplers, fiberscope couplers, diagnostic camera hand pieces, and medical X-ray scanning. Our Medical Imaging Lens assemblies include a standard offering of the most desired relay, 3 CCD relay, mounted and bare achromatic lenses. You will find the most popular combinations of F/no., focal length and back focal length available off-the-shelf, designed for use with today's high-resolution diagnostic cameras. We produce products that are extremely durable, well made, and very functional. If you are looking for custom lens assemblies for your medical systems, we have dozens of products that you can browse through and you can always talk to one of our qualified experts. We can provide you with recommendations and advice for your lens assembly. Universe has full design capability paired with years of manufacturing experience allowing us to produce any special lens.... in any quantity!
Robots have been, and still are, a staple of Sci-Fi movies and novels. However, the evolution of technology is quickly bringing them into the medical fields as well. According to one report by Credence Research, the global medical robotics market was valued at $7.24 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow to $20 billion […]
The recent research on medical proton imaging is by and large motivated by the desire to gather information using a less invasive source such as X-rays. With the use of a proton microscope, it is possible to image biological tissue without leaving any radiating material behind in the tissues of the patient. Proton beam therapy […]
In the past several years, an increasing amount of companies world-wide have seen the benefits of using machine and robotic vision technology for bin picking tasks. Many UKIVA (UK Industrial Vision Association) members are now involved in bin picking applications using 3D vision technology, according to managing director of UKIVA, Allen Anderson. Applications are varied, […]
The reason most people visit their optician or ophthalmologist is to have their eyesight tested. However, more than just a routine eye exam can be evaluated when the doctor examines the eyes. A simple ophthalmic exam can reveal signs of systemic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and in the future, the hope is it […]
The legal cannabis industry in the United States is currently experiencing a boom in economic growth, even though it is still illegal at the federal level and in about one-third of the states. To date, the industry in the U.S. hasbecome a nearly $11 billion business – a figure that is predicted to double by […]
Radiological x-rays, ultrasounds and NMR’s are all forms of medical imaging that have traditionally required the flexibility of the human eye to detect anomalies within the human body. Since a computer is confused by busy backgrounds and image quality issues, it is difficult for a traditional machine vision algorithm to locate an object or region […]
A decade ago it was discovered that functional magnetic resonance imaging – fMRI – signals were able to detect cognitive functions in comatose, or even vegetative patients which spurred new research into consciousness.
Studying the human mind is challenging. Currently, most human brain studies are limited to non-invasive approaches, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This limits the examination of the human brain at the cellular level, which may offer novel insights into the development and potential treatment of various neurological diseases.
MR guidance is emerging as a powerful tool for real-time monitoring of radiation treatments, offering excellent soft-tissue contrast and the ability to track intra-fractional tumor motion. Hybrid devices for MR-guided photon-based radiotherapy are now in clinical use. But to date, no such combined system exists for proton therapy.
