Parallel vs. Distributed Data Access for Giga-pixel-resolution Histology Images: Challenges and Opportunities
Recent advances in digital pathology technology have led to significant improvements in terms of both the quality and resolution of the resulting images, which now often exceed several Gigabytes each. Today, several leading institutions across the US, utilize whole-slide imaging (WSI) as part of their routine workflow…
Towards a Portable Cancer Diagnostic Tool Using a Disposable MEMS-based Biochip
A portable cancer diagnostic tool integrated with a disposable MEMS-based biochip is developed for measuring electro-thermo-mechanical (ETM) properties of the breast tissue. The ETM properties of the normal and cancerous breast tissues are measured by indenting the tissue placed on the biochip integrated inside the 3D printed tool.
