Image: Left: Quantitative phase image of an unstained prostatectomy sample from a patient who had a biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer. Right: A zoomed-in region from the quantitative phase image showing a cancerous gland with debris in the lumen. The stroma, or supportive tissue environment, shows discontinuities in the fiber length and disorganization in the orientation of the fibers (Photo courtesy of the University of Illinois).

Pathologists Use Spatial Light Interference Microscopy to Predict Risk of Prostate Cancer Recurrence Prior to Biopsy or Surgery

A novel microscopy method that combines phase contrast microscopy with holography enables prediction of the likelihood of prostate cancer recurrence prior to biopsy or surgery.  More...

Portable Device Could Test for Physical Property of Tumor Aggressiveness

A new polarimetric fiber stress sensor device has been developed for visco-elastic and biomimetic material analysis, and, as part of the emerging field of physical oncology, is being tested for measuring a tumor’s Young’s modulus—an elasticity-related measure recently linked to cancerous tumor aggressiveness.  More...

Image: Breast tissue stained to show hematoxylin and eosin (large tissue section). Two regions are selected to show an overlayer of molecular staining (left: cytokeratin; right: Masson\'s trichrome). All 3 stains were computationally generated using chemical imaging data obtained via a newly developed infrared spectroscopic imaging system, and without actually staining the tissue (Image courtesy of Prof. Rohit Bhargava, Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).

Stainless Staining Provides New Histology Tool for Researchers and Clinical Pathologists

Researchers have developed a potentially revolutionary system based on infrared spectroscopic imaging that enables stain-free, non-perturbing, multiple analyses of a single biological tissue sample.   More...
