    Using Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography to Detect and Treat Early-Stage Pancreatic Cancers

    We developed a novel technology capable of detecting early-stage pancreatic cancers using high-resolution three-dimensional endoscopic optical coherence tomography (Endo-OCT), and treating them using high dose rate brachytherapy (HDR) under the Endo-OCT image guidance. This technology integrates our custom-built ultra-high resolution endoscopic three-dimensional OCT diagnostic imaging device with a commercial high dose rate brachytherapy system (HDR), resulting in a compact, portable, easy-to-operate, and low-cost Endo-OCT image-guided high dose rate brachytherapy (OCT-IGHDR) system. The system has the dual functions of diagnosis and treatment that can precisely detect and measure the location and size of the early-stage pancreatic cancer or premalignant lesions and ...
