Technology of ‘Virtual Technology’ May Replace Skin Biopsies in Future

Researchers from the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA have developed a new 'virtual histology' technology that is able to analyze images of suspicious lesions and quickly produce a detailed, microscopic image of the skin.Technology of ‘Virtual Technology’ May Replace Skin Biopsies in Future

The brand-new technology, which is being developed for three years now, allows bypassing several standard steps typically used for diagnoses, such as skin biopsy, tissue fixation, processing, sectioning, and histochemical staining.

The senior author of the study, Aydogan Ozcan, Chancellor's Professor and Volgenau Chair for Engineering Innovation of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCLA Samueli, says: “This process bypasses several standard steps typically used for diagnosis -- including skin biopsy, tissue fixation, processing, sectioning, and histochemical staining. Images appear like biopsied, histochemically stained skin sections imaged on microscope slides.”
