Photonics West 2021
No one will be in San Francisco for this year’s Photonics West exhibition and conference in March as it will be held online instead, although with biomedical imaging technologies at the absolute forefront of studying and diagnosing and understanding Covid-19 there’s going to be no shortage of things to talk about.
There will be only one Show Daily publication this year, including an article by me about work at South Korea’s POSTECH university looking at ways to combine different imaging techniques into one feasibly economic package. Optical and ultrasound methods are often present in the same clinics already, and the technique called photoacoustic imaging already uses them side by side, so making them play nice with other clinical techniques might not be too difficult. POSTECH created a spin-out to look into it, just in time for Covid-19 to stress-test the medical equipment sector.
The conference magazine will be archived here on the publisher’s Optics.org site.
