At this year’s annual Hamlyn Centre Christmas showcase, the AOG was represented by two members of the REBOT research team, Dr Michael Hughes and Dr Manuel Marques. This event aims to demonstrate the latest innovations from the Hamlyn Centre to the wider community within Imperial College London. The AOG participated with a live, in-phantom demo of an OCT system for endoscopy, incorporating a forward-viewing, 1-D raster scanning probe from Dr Gelikonov’s group at the Institute of Applied Sciences, Russia. It was deployed via the robotic catheter developed by REBOT team members at the Hamlyn Centre, Dr Anzhu Gao and Mr Ning Liu.
This was a fantastic event, as not only were we able to showcase part of our research from our on-going collaboration through the REBOT project, but we were also able to see first-hand some of the interesting and cutting-edge work carried out at the Hamlyn Centre.
