Using holograms to perform remote diagnoses

Performing accurate diagnoses in remote locations is incredibly challenging, not least because of an inherent lack of equipment and resources.

A new system, developed by a team from UCLA aims to make such remote diagnoses much easier and more effective.

The approach, which was documented in a recently published paper, uses simple optical hardware and a lens-free microscope, together with some smart algorithms to help reconstruct images of tissue samples and thus enable people to conduct biopsies without needing expensive equipment.
