By using theragnostic radiotherapy, a personalized treatment plan can be tailored to both the geometric and biological attributes of a patient’s tumor. Medical imaging needs radiation therapy just as radiotherapy needs imaging. Progress in functional and molecular imaging has dramatically improved the ability to map the spatial distribution of cellular phenotypes and microenvironmental parameters in […]
3D scanning is all about capturing real-world data and converting it into a 3D model. Until recently, 3D scanners were mainly used for industrial applications. 3D printing is becoming more common, especially for hobbyists, and the demand for 3D scanning devices that can transform real objects into 3D printable models is growing.
Virtually all digital and video cameras use CMOS image sensors. In the past two decades, numerous advances have been made in this type of imaging technology. Now, CMOS image sensors are beginning to be made with superior quality that will provide a large range of new products for military and aerospace users.
Phil Butler – a physicist at the University of Canterbury – along with his son, Anthony – a radiologist at the Universities of Otago and Canterbury – invented a revolutionary 3D color medical scanner known as the MARS spectral X-ray scanner. For the first time, researchers have captured 3D images of the human body. The […]
A new underwater hyperspectral camera has been deployed on Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) for a more automated identification, mapping and monitoring of the sea floor around the world.
In today’s automotive environment, there are a variety of in-car cameras. These automotive cameras provide solutions to different problems. Safety is the first priority, followed by security. In many of the vehicles being made today, you can find front, rear, backup, side and far-view cameras, along with rear-view, and surround view cameras. As a matter […]
Part of the mystique of driving has often been the possibility of someday getting into a fast car, pointing it in a random direction, and just driving for the sure pleasure of driving. However, the onward march of technology that has made its way into every area of modern life has also found its way […]
From the early days of CT scanners and mammography devices, medical imaging has come a long way. With 3D medical imaging, healthcare professionals can now access new resolutions, angles, and details to help them gain a better understanding of their patient, all while cutting back on the dosage of radiation used to gather the images.
Robots are taking over the financial service industry in many ways. Everyone is familiar with the ATM machine, and now robotic banking is showing up in mainstream financial institutions.
Terahertz radiation is used in a wide variety of applications including airport security checks and material analysis in a lab. The wavelength of this radiation is significantly larger than the wavelength of visible light, as it is in the millimeter range. It also requires specialized techniques to manipulate the beams and get them into the […]
