New Paradigm of Medical Imaging
The core WOI technology utilizes recent developments in tiny, inexpensive microelectromechanical (MEMS) rapid scanning optical devices. WOI will produce a portfolio of proprietary optical imaging probes that are customized for various endoscopic imaging applications (e.g., bronchoscopy and laryngoscopy) and imaging-guided intervention and cancer therapeutic treatment monitoring applications (e.g, breast cancer surgery).
WOI's proprietary MEMS scanning mirrors levarage on innovative microactuator designs , the overwhelming superiority to other MEMS mirror make them best suit for biomedical imaging.
Integrated with the latest optical imaging techniques such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), confocal microscopy and nonlinear optical microscopy, WOI’s optical imaging systems provide real-time optical “biopsy”, i.e., obtaining in vivo 3-D high-resolution images of tissue without any physical biopsy.
WOI’s high-resolution, high-speed optical “biopsy” endoscopic imaging systems enable physicians to diagnose caner at early stage without performing any risky and often random biopsy as well as allow surgeons to clearly identify cancer margins during surgery to ensure that all but only malign tissue is removed.
WOI probes can also integrate motion sensors to precisely compensate vibration and patient motion while performing image scanning.
A typical WOI system consists of a control/display console with custom imaging software, a pull-back device, and disposable probe.
WOI’s MEMS Near-Infrared (NIR) Spectrometers are spectral analysis products based on Fourier Transform. Its core is to make use of the advantages of WOI’s advanced MEMS micro-mirror, including large displacement, low power, low cost, small size, and high integration. Therefore, the cost and volume of the product is largely reduced. It is convenient for users to carry and can achieve fast and accurate detection and analysis of the samples on site or in field.
