The American Association for the Advancement of Science recognized the work of Lumedica Founder, Dr. Adam Wax and Duke University researcher, Evan T. Jelly in a recent Eureka Alert. The study explores the use of affordable OCT to measure cartilage thickness in pigs.

“We saw a need for OCT image guidance in arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that uses an endoscope to address joint damage,” said research team leader Evan T. Jelly. “We took the low-cost OCT imaging platform we previously developed and adapted it to meet the requirements of this application.”
