LiDAR technology can serve a critical role in terms of obstacle detection and avoidance, allowing vehicles to navigate safely through environments. As autonomous cars become a pressing reality, this technology is leading the way forward.

Palm-sized medical gamma-ray camera launched

Scientists have invented a Compton camera weighing just 580 grams. The camera visualizes gamma rays of different energies. in tests the camera has produced high-resolution, multicolor 3D molecular images of a live mouse.

Viewing brain images by new adaptive-optics technology

Scientists from Purdue University have developed a new adaptive-optics technology designed for brain research. The method, described as “multi-pupil adaptive optics”, helps with research into brain function.

New imaging method tracks cystic fibrosis drug Special

A new imaging technique called hyperpolarized helium MRI scanning could aid in the development of improved therapies for lung diseases like cystic fibrosis.

Seeing preserved mummies clearer thanks to virtual imaging

London - Advanced imaging has interfaced with antiquities thanks to a new initiative from the British Museum in London. This makes use of imaging software designed to enhance the visitor experience.

Powerful microscope shrunk to dime-size

Dallas - A high-technology imaging device has been created, in the form of a an atomic force microscope on a chip. The microscope is powerful and it can be manufactured at a low-cost.

New imaging method tracks neurological diseases

Medical researchers have devised a new imaging method to track genetic markers in the human brain. Abnormalities with these genes are indicators of potential neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

New way of watching 'neurons in action' (video)

Researchers have imaged the electrical impulses of a worm and in the zebrafish nervous system. It is hoped that the pioneering technology could be used soon to show activity in the human brain.

Canadian scientists use 3-D modeling to identify cancers

Montreal - Scientists have shown that the three-dimensional shape of a cancer cell genome can reliably classify sub-types of human leukemia. This could lead to new diagnosis using 3-D imaging.

Imaging technology helps screen childhood disease

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can cause serious illnesses in children. In the early stages the disease is difficult to detect. New imaging technology offers a way to increase detection of the disease.
