1. Evaluation of oral vascular anomalies using optical coherence tomography

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new method of biomedical imaging that can generate high-resolution, cross-sectional images of microstructures. The purpose of this study was to present the first OCT images of oral vascular anomalies using a new advanced OCT scanner that we have developed, and to discuss the application of our system for oral soft tissues. Knowledge of the size and area of the vascular structures can be useful for the diagnosis and choice of the best treatment. Before excision, oral vascular malformations were assessed by OCT in vivo. Histopathological sections were taken and compared with the OCT images ...
