Medical Proton Imaging


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 [...]

Using Machine Vision For Other Optical Exams


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 [...]

Deep Learning-based Analysis


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 [...]

Neuroimaging With Machine Learning


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. [...]

MRI With Proton Beam


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. [...]
