Technologies Enabling Super-resolution Biomedical Imaging

Technologies Enabling Super-resolution Biomedical Imaging

TechVision's latest research service from the medical imaging technology cluster highlights the emerging trends and innovations in super-resolution biomedical imaging. Over the last two decades, powered by rapid advances in electronics and sensors, information technology and telecommunications, microscopes have evolved from moderately powerful, stand-alone imaging devices into powerful, networked and highly-intelligent diagnostic systems.

A term that has evolved over the last decade is super-resolution. Super-resolution imaging techniques that are employed to improve the resolution of imaging systems, in an attempt to break the diffraction limit – a phenomenon that determines the limitations of optical imaging systems.

This research service sheds light on the super-resolution imaging technology landscape, key business and technology considerations that are aiding and hampering market adoption, areas that present opportunities for growth and research activity in this area.
