Developing the World’s First Real-Time 3D OCT Medical Imaging System With LabVIEW and NI FlexRIO

Figure 1. Real-Time Rendered 3D Image of Finger Skin

"We leveraged the flexibility and scalability of the PXI platform and NI FlexRIO to develop the world’s first real-time 3D OCT imaging system. We used LabVIEW to program, integrate, and control the different parts of the system, combining high-channel-count acquisition with FPGA and GPU processing for real-time computation, rendering, and display."

- Dr. Kohji Ohbayashi 大林 康二, Kitasato University, Graduate School of Medical Science 北里大学 大学院 医療系研究科 教授

The Challenge:
Creating a medical instrument that can detect cancer during medical checkups without requiring the patient to undergo the severe stress of a biopsy.

The Solution:
Using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and a 320-channel data acquisition system combining NI FlexRIO field-programmable gate array (FPGA) hardware and GPU processing to create the world’s first real-time 3D OCT imaging system.
