Biomedical Imaging Breakthroughs
MIKE WHEELER, MANAGING EDITOR

Water concentrations in human tissue, it turns out, are a good indicator of whether or not cells are cancerous. That’s led to increased interest in the emerging field of terahertz imaging, which promises delineation between healthy cells and cancerous ones. The problem: limitations in the performance of current THz sources and detectors.

Which brings us to Pierre Gellie’s “Breakthrough for Real-Time THz Imaging”. Gellie, a winner of a Prism Award this year, walks through enhancements made to quantum cascade lasers — from optimizing the beam profile to achieving cryogenic operating temperature — required for the compact THz sources.

Airy Beam Light-Sheet Microscopy Holds Promise for Life Sciences Imaging
Airy Beam Light-Sheet Microscopy Holds Promise for Life Sciences Imaging
Airy light-sheet microscopy has great potential to help further research and clinical diagnoses through its ability to image larger 3D volumes of tissues and organoids. Developed in the last three years, it is best-suited to the fields of regenerative medicine, cancer biology, neuroscience and developmental biology, as ALSM can acquire images, as well as 3D datasets, with higher resolution over larger fields of view than its predecessors.
