1. Optical coherence tomography: A potential tool for unsupervised prediction of treatment response for Port-Wine Stains

    Background: Treatment of Port-Wine Stains (PWS) suffers from the absence of a reliable real-time tool for monitoring a clinical endpoint. Response to treatment varies substantially according to blood vessel geometry. Even though optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been identified as a modality with potential to suit this need, it has not been introduced as a standard clinical monitoring tool. One reason could be that – although OCT acquires data in real-time – gigabyte data transfer, processing and communication to a clinician may impede the implementation as a clinical tool. Objectives: We investigate whether an automated algorithm can address this problem. Methods: Based ...
