Medical Imaging

DEXI's ability to simultaneously image both hard and soft tissue and distinguish interfaces promises to significantly impact the future of clinical imaging. Below are two examples of the unique imaging capability of our DEXI instrument:

Human Cadaveric Thumb
Conventional
Extinction
Refraction
Scattering

The DEXI instrument produces four images per procedure: conventional, extinction, refraction, and scattering. Many more anatomical details of the thumb are revealed in the unique DEXI images - features that are not seen with conventional radiography.

Human Talus Bone (ankle)
The talus bone is a relatively small bone located within the human ankle. Around the perimeter of the talus bone there are a few millimeters of cartilage; the cartilage's primary function is to act as a type of cushion between the talus bone and the surrounding bones that make up the ankle. It is common that the cartilage around this bone and those like the talus (e.g. knee joint) wear down and become damaged over time especially in people who are active (running, jumping, etc.). Because of its composition, cartilage is very difficult to image using conventional methods; therefore, having a way in which to identify this type of damage would be very advantageous not only for identifying the ailment or source of the pain, but also in preventative medicine used to inhibit this type of deterioration.
Conventional
Extinction
Refraction
Scattering

The images shown above are of a talus bone that has an abrasion or damage on the surface of the cartilage. The damage to these regions can be observed quite well in both the extinction and refraction images. The same cartilage abrasion cannot be observed in the conventional radiograph.

Nesch is actively involved in the imaging of anatomical features and specimens. One of our goals for the near future is to develop a machine that is capable of imaging humans in a clinical setting.
