Despite the fact that the "gold standard" for the pathomorphological evaluation of normal and affected skin in dermatology is still biopsy followed by histological study, according to the Russian researchers, "there is always a demand in the applied medicine field for informative, high-tech and non-invasive diagnostic methods, which include confocal
laser scanning microscopy," they stated.
measurement offers nanometre resolutions and operates almost independently of the target material.
In addition to performing standard fixed preparation and live-cell confocal
imaging, Vutara 352 with the Opterra SRoption enables correlative imaging to provide live, high-resolution imaging for sample investigation prior to super-resolution imaging, as well as the capability to combine super-resolution images with confocal
images for contextual information.
EIDON's white-light, confocal
imaging technology facilitates diagnosis and management of retinal disease.
Key Words: Melanocytic skin lesions, reflectance confocal
To overcome this limitation, Maitland paired the technology with another technology known as confocal
Initially designed in 2004, endoscope-based CLE (eCLE; Pentax Corporation, Montvale, New Jersey) uses a fiber-optic cable to convey blue laser light to a miniaturized confocal
microscope integrated into the 12-mm-diameter tip of an endoscope.
laser endomicroscopy allows a clinician to look at living tissue in an area of interest, as if the tissue were under a microscope, while the endoscope is still in the patient.
The Olympus FluoView FV300 cLSM offers two confocal
fluorescence detection channels and a third transmitted light detection channel, making it a highly flexible entry-level confocal
system for all applications.
To reject the out-of-focus light, the microscope places a spinning disk, with an alternating pattern of vertical and horizontal slits, in the confocal
plane of the microscope.
Siscan MC64 sensor is a confocal
displacement sensor with vertically oscillating turning fork for accurate and fast 3D surface scanning at great speed.
WASHINGTON -- Corneal confocal
microscopy provides a means for noninvasively diagnosing neuropathy early on in diabetic patients and for following the course of the disease during treatment, several speakers said at the annual scientific sessions of the American Diabetes Association.
