Transforming Medicine in a Digital World
February 10-12, 2014 | San Francisco, CA
Dr. Guoan Zheng, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering & Electrical Engineering at the University of Connecticut, to Present “Pushing the Resolution Limit with a Simple LED Array” at the Second Annual Digital Pathology Conference
Dr. Zheng will discuss an imaging modality, termed Fourier ptychographic microscopy (FPM), which acquires multiple low-resolution images and stitches them in the Fourier domain. He will report on a FPM prototype that uses a LED array and a 2X objective lens to achieve the resolution of a 20X objective lens.
The large field of view that this system can image could be particularly useful for digital pathology, where the process of using a microscope to scan an entire sample can take dozens of minutes. With FPM, a microscope does not have to scan the different parts of a sample, as the whole sample can be imaged at once. Since the system acquires a complete set of data about the light field, it can correct errors, like out-of-focus images, so samples do not have to be rescanned.
Dr. Zheng is an assistant professor at the University of Connecticut. His research focuses on the development of new imaging technologies for biomedical applications. He received B.S. degree from Zhejiang University (China) in 2007, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Caltech in 2008 and 2013. He is the recipient of the Lemelson-MIT Caltech Student Prize.
