Optical Frequency-Domain Imaging

Optical frequency-domain imaging or OFDI, is a parallel processing medical imaging method developed at the end of 2008, by Massachusetts General Hospital researchers. It uses a constantly rotating laser tip that continually modulates its wavelength, to pass through the body, and collect data on how each wavelength is reflected back.

OFDI has 1024 signals on different wavelengths being transmitted at any time, using multiple lasers to build up in parallel, images of significant sections of the body in parallel, reducing the nose created by moving red blood cells.

The data is then used to create interactive 3D environments, modelled on parts of a living body, allowing medical staff and researchers to fly through individual capillaries or cell clusters, analysing blood flow routes and fat deposits.

Ultrasensitive Imaging: Hunting Every Photon
As the demands for precise imaging in fields such as medicine, astronomy, and real-time machine vision in hostile environments continue to increase, so the demands placed on imaging equipment become ever more stringent. An imaging method based on Single Photon Avalanche Photodiodes (SPAD) offers the potential to ease this bottleneck greatly.
