Portable Diagnostic System for Otitis Media

Dr. Boppart from the University of IL has developed a portable Otitis Media diagnostic system that allows for primary and point-of-care use. The briefcase OCT system provides a 5-fold cost reduction and 3-fold size reduction compared to current systems and is easily portable for field work.  The measurements using this system could be performed non-invasively through tissues or other interfaces/layers of material provided they are optically transparent for OCT imaging.
