Abstract
We have developed a line-scanned dual-axis confocal (LS-DAC) microscope with subcellular resolution suitable for real time diagnostic imaging at shallow depths. This design serves as a benchtop prototype for a handheld version of the LS-DAC intended for rapid point-of-care pathology. We have assessed the performance trade-offs between the LS-DAC and a point-scanned dual-axis confocal (PS-DAC) microscope via diffraction-theory analysis, Monte-Carlo simulations, and characterization experiments with phantoms and fresh tissues. In addition, we are exploring the use of a sCMOS detector array and rapid 3D deconvolution to improve the sensitivity and resolution of our LS-DAC microscope.
