Photoacoustic Imaging Using a Versatile Acoustic Lens
Applications:Photoacoustic imaging (also called optoacoustic or thermoacoustic imaging) has the potential to image animal or human organs with simultaneous high contrast and high spatial resolution. The photoacoustic signal is small and needs a mechanism to focus it on an image plane without degradation. This technology improves the signal to noise...

Retinal Imaging with Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography (AO-OCT)
Adaptive optics is used in optical coherence tomography (OCT) to provide very high axial resolution in a non-invasive "optical sectioning" technique for imaging at various depths within living human tissue. In the current commercial application of OCT for retinal imaging, the transverse resolution is limited by the intrinsic ocular aberrations...

Mouse Model of Osteoarthritis: Over-Expression of Smurf2 in Cartilage to Induce Disease and Over-expression of Smurf1 as a Potential Therapeutic Strategy
Applications:We have generated col2-promoter-Smad ubiquitin regulatory factor2 (col2-Smurf2) transgenic mice which possess a loss of TGFß signaling and display each of above characteristics, thus displaying a phenotype more representative of the disease process. Furthermore, the over-expression of Smurf2 in cartilage that has been induced in...
