Wearable glasses enable surgeons to visualize cancerous cells

By Matthew S. Muller and Stephan Briggs

A confocal microscope platform makes use of a CMOS rolling shutter and a digital micromirror to enable simple and modular optical designs for brightfield, darkfield, ophthalmic, fluorescence, polarization-sensitive, and interferometric imaging.

Confocal imaging is a well-established technique for biomedical and industrial imaging in which light returning from a target is spatially filtered...
