Biomedical imaging has found applications in a wide range of problems, from modeling of physiological systems to the development of new instruments that can be used in the diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as for routine medical care. Rutgers researchers recently developed a venipuncture device that non-invasively images a human arm to identify a suitable vein, combined with a robotic arm that subsequently performs an injection. Other Rutgers research develops and applies nanoscale probes that home to the sites of cancerous lesions and allows them to be visualized through human skin and other tissues.
