Using OpticStudio for biomedical imaging design

Using OpticStudio for biomedical imaging design

Biomedical optical imaging is one of the most relied-upon tools in healthcare for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. It’s used to identify abnormalities in the human body while minimizing collateral damage to healthy tissue.

Most biomedical optical imaging techniques are based on phase or amplitude variations in light interacting with tissue and organs. Examples of techniques include:

  • Material absorption, transmission, reflection

  • Biological scattering

  • Fluorescence

  • Confocal microscopy

  • Extended scene analysis

  • Image system design

  • Illumination system design

  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

The optimization tools in OpticStudio automatically improve the performance of biomedical imaging designs based on user-defined constraints. The tolerancing tools help engineers incorporate manufacturing and assembly limits into design constraints to ensure manufacturability and production efficiency. These tools save time by eliminating manual tests of design iterations.
