3D Imaging Aids Life Sciences

EuroPhotonics
Jun 2017
Imaging has historically only offered a two-dimensional view of bodies and cells, despite their 3D properties. Now, 3D imaging and data are finding expanded application, particularly in medicine and the life sciences.

HANK HOGAN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, hank.hogan@photonics.com

While human bodies and single cells are three-dimensional, in the past, imaging of them often was not. Data might be captured in two-dimensional slices during a computed tomography, magnetic resonance, ultrasound or even microscope study. But the interpretation of how those 2D images related to real-world medical and life science structures sometimes required specialized expertise. Now, advances in display-related technology and software are changing that, with benefits to medicine and the

GLOSSARY
radiology
The study of radioactive substances and high-energy radiations such as x-rays and g-rays.
hololens
A series of permanent holograms in dichromated gelatin formed by opening total page-composer apertures and setting a point source of light in each storage location. It performs much like a beamsplitter, providing reference and object beams.
