The Technology of Newsight Imaging

In Depth

Advancements in imaging technology have allowed fields beyond medicine to harness it for the benefit of the public. Self-driving cars, tracking the spread of a virus, and improved aerial scans of agricultural output are all made possible through modern imaging technology. Whether it's for medical, automotive, or industrial applications, consider these companies listed here in no particular order.

Starting with #1, we have Fluid Imaging Technologies, which manufactures particle analysis instrumentation based on digital imaging technology, like the FlowCam. The FlowCam is the first automated particle analysis instrument to use digital imaging for measuring the size and shape of microscopic particles in a fluid medium. It is used in oceanographic research, municipal water, biofuels, and many other markets.

The FlowCam offers a range of models for different applications. The EPA, FDA, and Pfizer, among hundreds of other organizations, including universities, utilize FlowCam technology. One such example is at Boston University, where PhD candidate Nicholas Ray studied the role oysters play in regulating coastal nutrient cycling and greenhouse gas emissions.

Next up at #2, is Novarad, established in 1998 to respond to the lack of innovative picture archiving and communication systems, or PACs, in the imaging field. Since then, Novarad has assisted specialists for over 25 years to increase productivity, reduce inefficiency, and improve the quality of healthcare throughout the world by providing advanced imaging solutions.

Medical facilities are often looking to create holistic patient records, share data, and reduce the repetition of studies conducted. Novarad Image Exchange lets facilities share patient information while maintaining data privacy. This exchange provides a network of image sharing that allows providers access to patient image data and reports via a web-based tool.

Coming in at #3, we have Newsight Imaging, headquartered in Ness Ziona, Israel, which develops advanced complementary metal oxide semiconductor, or CMOS, image sensor chips for the automotive, robotics, and artificial reality industries. Newsight Imaging specializes in providing accurate, portable, and affordable 3D image sensing for use in conjunction with emerging technologies.

CMOS Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDAR, image sensor-based chips have helped improve driver safety in modern automobiles. Distance alert helps the driver keep a proper distance from nearby vehicles and potential hazards. The driver can select the distance to be maintained in front and back ensuring a safe amount of space between cars.

Arriving at #4, is Infrared Cameras Inc., or ICI, which develops and manufactures thermal infrared cameras that can detect elevated skin temperatures brought on by various external causes, such as a virus, with pinpoint accuracy. ICI has developed a range of individual units, as well as complete package systems for a variety of applications.

ICI's thermal cameras are intended for non-invasive, adjunct use in hospitals and public areas. Individual units as well as systems of cameras are used for medical thermography, agricultural drones, and industrial process control. ICI's goal is to supply the needs of a broad spectrum of industries with the latest advancements in infrared imaging.

Finally at #5, we have Aspect Imaging, which specializes in compact magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, systems for preclinical, medical and advanced industrial applications. Compact MRIs offer solutions to the obstacles that exist with larger conventional MRIs. These include costs, technical complexities, and the health concerns of conventional MRI systems due to their active magnetic fields.

One such solution from Aspect Imaging is the Embrace neonatal MRI system, which was designed specifically for use inside the neonatal intensive care unit. Infants may be scanned anytime to provide critical information for quicker diagnosis and treatment, while reducing the risks often associated with off-unit transport of neonatal patients.
