Michelson Diagnostics has been awarded European CE Mark clearance for its VivoSight optical coherence tomography (OCT) system.
The product's Multi-Beam OCT technology uses four laser beams to achieve double the lateral image resolution of conventional single-beam OCT, the firm said. According to Michelson, the VivoSight scanner provides images of surface tissue at a higher resolution--better than 7.5 microns in lateral resolution and 10 microns in axial resolution--than is possible with other modalities.
When the hand-held probe is positioned over the tissue it can capture either 2D or 3D images of a 5-mm square region. Tissue microstructure features such as epidermis, dermis and sub-layers can be imaged, as can subsurface blood vessels. According to the company, VivoSight captured video data can be instantly replayed for review, or stored for later analysis.
