    Virtual intraoperative optical coherence tomography angiography integrated surgical microscope for simultaneous imaging of morphological structures and vascular maps in vivo

    Intraoperative surgical microscopy integrated with optical coherence tomography (OCT) has improved the accuracy and safety of surgeries by providing a visualization of the sub-surface tissue structure. Although intraoperative OCT has resolved the conventional limitations of the surgical microscope, it is still remained to provide additional informative blood vessel-related data that is required to enhance the stability of surgery by minimizing bleeding and tissue damage. In this paper, we developed a virtual intraoperative OCT angiography integrated surgical microscope (VI-OCTA-SM) to simultaneously visualize morphological tissue structure and microvasculature data of the surgical region including tumor margin and blood vessel map. In addition ...
