BOSS™ BRILLOUIN OPTICAL SCANNER SYSTEM
Biomechanical imaging with the Brillouin Optical Scanner System, or BOSS, will address a large range of ophthalmic indications. BOSS is a non-contact, confocal, high-resolution optical scanning platform targeted at identifying the biomechanical properties of eye tissues such as the cornea or lens, to build a spatially resolved profile of tissue stiffness in vivo.
How BOSS Works
BOSS works by using light energy to measure reverberations through a depth of eye tissue. To determine tissue biomechanics, or elasticity, the system performs a spectral analysis of scattered laser light.
