Avotec’s unique visual stimulation and eye tracking system for MRI systems is a finalist in SPIE’s prestigious Prism Awards - Biomedical Instrumentation category.
SANTA ANA, CA – March 7, 2016 - Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O - www.pgo.com),announces the customization of two thin film optical components for a high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) accessory developed by Avotec, Inc. (www.avotecinc.com – Stuart, Florida). The Real Eye Nano™ is an advanced visual presentation and eye-tracking system constructed entirely of glass and plastic, with a reduced size that makes it ideal for operation in confined MRI spaces. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a leading tool in the effort to understand how the human brain functions and a primary target of fMRI research is cognitive disorders associated with increasing age. Optical systems that provide both eye-tracking and visual stimulation are, and will continue to be, a key component in fMRI research.
