Lantis Laser Inc., a New Jersey-based company specializing in the commercialization of advanced dental technology, recently won a Popular Science Magazine 2007 Best of What’s New award for its newly developed Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Dental Imaging System™. Lantis’ proprietary OCT System is a diagnostic aid that provides real-time, high-resolution chairside imaging of dental tissue for the early detection of tooth decay and other oral diseases.
Computed Tomography (CT) scans are an increasingly used X-ray-based tool for providing a three-dimensional view of a particular organ or tissue. The value of CT scanning to diagnose injury, cancer and other health problems is undisputed. But are these scans being used too frequently, in some cases unnecessarily" What are the health consequences of having too many CT scans over the course of a person’s life"
Nikon Instruments, Inc. today announced the launch of the latest version of its industry-leading microscopy acquisition and analysis software -- NIS-Elements. When paired with Nikon's new Eclipse Ti inverted microscope series, NIS-Elements' latest version enables exceptional image data throughput and multi-dimensional image capture routines that advance productivity and minimize photobleaching and cell phototoxicity.
Nikon Instruments, Inc. today unveiled the latest entry in its Digital Sight line of cameras for microscopy, the DS-Ri1 camera, designed for high resolution color documentation applications. It is an evolution to the DXM1200 series of cameras, retaining several of the DXM1200's key features while adding several improvements in connectivity, color rendition and performance.
Laser Energetics, Inc. announced today that the Company has received a contract from a major US-multinational defense contractor regarding its new, all solid- state Alexandrite BrightStar(TM) Laser.
