Covid-19 impacts doctors' trust in point-of-care tests

With huge opportunities for light-based diagnostics and therapeutics to combat disease, successful clinical translation depends on funding robust trials – and greater trust between developers and end-users, finds Jessica Rowbury 

Modeling biological tissues in lighttools

This article is brought to you by: 

This paper presents the most up to date compilation of research and data available in the literature regarding the optical properties of human tissue. The relevant optical, biological, and measurement details are presented to illustrate the necessary considerations that should be observed when modeling human tissue in LightTools. It also describes how this information has been incorporated into a new Human Tissue Utility. This utility aims to take some of the guesswork out of creating User Materials that model biological tissues.
