INO capitalizes on the optical properties of diffusion and absorption of biological tissues and fluids in the near-infrared to develop minimally invasive and noninvasive detection and imaging systems for the biomedical field.
The near-infrared (NIR) optical window (800–1800 nm) offers interesting possibilities because absorption and diffusion in tissues are relatively low, which allows for deeper penetration of NIR light.
INO boasts the expertise needed to develop specialized components such as optical fiber probes or complete systems incorporating various technologies such as optical coherence tomography or computer vision for pathology detection.
One of our design achievements is a jaw inferior alveolar nerve detection system for dental implant surgeries. This system is equipped with a fiber probe to help surgeons avoid damaging this sensitive nerve.
We have also developed an imaging technique for detecting venous blood clots in cases of superficial thrombophlebitis. Designed for the medical point-of-care market, this technique is an alternative to ultrasound imaging.
