Ms. Silver will be presenting the business plan and opportunity that OptoVibronex is capitalizing on with their innovative invention - Vibrational Optical Coherence Tomography (VOCT). VOCT provides an image, and quantifiable measure of mechanical and physical properties of materials including tissue, non-invasively and non-destructively. VOCT can be used to identify a spectra of components in a variety of tissues such as nerve, vascular, eye structures, tendons and ligaments, etc.
Initially OptoVibronex is using images generated by OCT and maps of the modulus as a function of position, to determine skin cancer type and lesion margins. By determining the characteristic lesion “finger print” VOCT can distinguish between benign and malignant skin lesions.
