1. Comparative morphometry in porcine ureteral wall specimens ex vivo using catheter-based intraluminal optical coherence tomography (OCT) and histology

    Rationale and objectives In order to assess the reliability of the delineation of cross-sectional optical coherence tomography (OCT) images, we compared the width of different tissue layers of the wall of upper porcine ureters ex vivo as measured on OCT images with the corresponding whole mount histology microscopy sections. Materials and methods Fifteen specimens of porcine upper ureters were flushed with normal saline solution prior to imaging from the inside by means of an OCT catheter (diameter: 0.014 in, OCT wavelength: 1300±20 nm) at marked locations. Ring-shaped ureter specimens of 3 mm width were fixed in 4% formalin ...
