Photoacoustic Imaging Identifies Transplantable Kidneys
Photoacoustic Imaging Identifies Transplantable Kidneys
Chronic kidney disease is a condition that causes the gradual loss of kidney function over a period of months to years. The prevalence of the disease is worsened by the alarming rise of diabetes and hypertension, two of the most common causes of renal failure. The goal of most therapies is to merely slow the progression of the disease. Fortunately, a modern technology called photoacoustic imaging, involving the use of both light and sound, is helping to assess the most efficient treatment for chronic kidney disease: kidney transplantation.

Pulsed Lasers Pierce the Diffraction Limit in Medicine
Pulsed Lasers Pierce the Diffraction Limit in Medicine
Optical imaging of tissues in diagnostics is a burgeoning field of research, and related technology has shown the ability to provide rapid, sensitive, and specific data that discriminates disease-related characteristics. However, the depth at which high-quality imaging can be performed in tissue by existing systems has historically been limited to only a few hundred microns. This hinders examination and detection of deeper disease markers or morphologies.

Superresolution on the SPOT: Imaging Achieves Optical Sectioning
Superresolution on the SPOT: Imaging Achieves Optical Sectioning
A technique called SPOT (spectrum and polarization optical tomography) is providing researchers with a "street view" of lipid membranes surrounding cell organelles, thereby allowing insight into lipid dynamics. The work is the result of a collaboration between Peking University and the University of Technology Sydney-Southern University of Science and Technology Joint Research Centre for Biomedical Materials and Devices.

Marine Luminescence Appears After Stress Test
Marine Luminescence Appears After Stress Test
No matter how small, organisms respond to their surrounding environment. A group of scientists at the University of Cambridge has shown that the light produced by ocean organisms is related to the stress their cells are under at the time.

Synthetization Process Yields Green Light-Emitting Idolizines
Chemists from the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (RUDN University) have introduced a new approach for synthesizing indolizines, a group of organic substances with biological and optical properties. The method, which uses pyridinium salts (electrically neutral molecules with both positively and negatively charged “poles”) and enaminones (a chemical compound), demonstrated the ability to emit green light, giving it potential applications in biomedicine.
