New Imaging Techniques Give Incredible New Views Inside Tumors

Thu, 09/19/2013 - 9:23am

Next month at Frontiers in Optics, The Optical Society’s (OSA) Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School will be showing how the harnessing of a couple imaging techniques can offer a fantastic new view inside the structure and workings of tumors.

One technique, called multiphoton laser-scanning microscopy (MPLSM), a fluorescence imaging modality, is now actually available for laboratories to purchase. The other technique is called optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI), which has been experimented with in labs but not yet commercially available, reconstructs the imaged object from the scattered light it gives off.
