3-D Optical Molecular Imaging
A currently available 2-D high-resolution, optical molecular imaging system will be modified by the addition of a structured illumination source to investigate the feasibility of providing depth resolution along the optical axis. The modification includes additional optics as well as control and signal processing software. The objective of this effort is to evaluate the possibility of providing low-cost, non-invasive, functional imaging in three dimensions. In addition to the proposed system modifications, a calibration device will also be developed to test the capabilities of the system in terms of range and resolution.

This project is funded by a CAT-CEIS grant in collaboration with Carestream Health.
