Camera Technology in the Medical and Life Sciences 2021: Latest Developments and Upcoming Trends

Presented by: Peter Behringer, Basler

There is hardly any technology that is not constantly evolving. This is especially true for vision technology in the medical and life sciences sectors. CCD sensors have largely been discontinued, but many manufacturers have already introduced a new generation with CMOS sensors. In addition, manufacturers are investing in the improvement of their CMOS sensors - for example, to optimize image acquisition in low-light conditions by means of backside illumination. But demanding low-light applications are not the only benefit of improved sensors. Image processing is also evolving. In addition to new sensors, the range of available interfaces is expanding, such as the MIPI CSI-2 for embedded vision applications and CXP-12 for particularly fast data transfer. Last but not least, artificial intelligence (AI) is making its way into the medical and life sciences, enabling completely new applications with enhanced image processing.

In this presentation, Behringer explains the latest developments and upcoming trends in the field of camera technology for the medical and life sciences. Which technology is continuing to develop, which one has reached the end of its useful life, and which one is currently conquering the stage? Peter will guide you through:
  • Cameras: improvements in low-light imaging.
  • Image processing: artificial intelligence (AI).
  • Sensors: bye bye, CCD.
  • Sensors: next-gen image sensors.
  • Interfaces: expanding the range.
