3D Imaging of Live Specimens-Quantitative Phase Imaging with SLIM and GLIM

Posted on 05/02/18 by Chenfei Hu

PDF Link An ideal optical imaging method must include a mechanism to reveal the structure of weakly scattering specimens and one to subdue the multiple scattering backgrounds for optically thick samples. Due to their label-free, low-illumination power capabilities, Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) methods are: 1) noninvasive and, thus, suitable for stable, long term investigation without […]

Label-free quantitative evaluation of breast tissue using Spatial Light Interference Microscopy (SLIM)

Posted on 05/02/18 by Chenfei Hu

PDF Link Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women worldwide. The standard histopathology of breast tissue, the primary means of disease diagnosis, involves manual microscopic examination of stained tissue by a pathologist. Because this method relies on qualitative information, it can result in inter-observer variation. Furthermore, for difficult cases the pathologist […]
