Multibeam OCT scanner KENT, England, July 14, 2009 – Michelson Diagnostics Ltd. has launched the VivoSight multibeam optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanner that provides high-resolution state-of-the art subsurface images of skin and other tissue in real time and in vivo through the use of a compact ergonomically designed handheld probe.
The probe is designed for use on external tissue, such as for imaging skin microstructure, with an isotropic resolution of better than 10 µm to a depth of up to 2 mm. Scan rates vary from 6.5 to 35 fps, depending upon the scan width which, in turn, can be varied up to 5 mm. The probe has full X-Y scanning capability, enabling rapid capture of 3-D tiff image stacks up to 5 × 5 mm, with a pixel size of 4 µm. A specially designed adjustable stand-off enables image capture from awkward locations, without subject discomfort. The software is designed to be quick and easy to understand and use, and it does not require an in-depth understanding of OCT.
The company says that the scanner’s patented multibeam optics simultaneously provide double the axial and lateral image resolution of conventional single-beam OCT, which is crucial to producing crisp, clear images of the subject matter microstructure.
