Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have paired infrared capabilities with high-resolution optical microscopy and machine learning to bring cancer diagnostics into the digital era.
This side-by-side comparison of a breast tissue biopsy demonstrates some of the infrared-optical hybrid microscope’s capabilities. On the left, a tissue sample dyed by traditional methods. Center, a computed stain created from infrared-optical hybrid imaging. Right, tissue types identified with infrared data. The pink in this image signifies malignant cancer.
