    software development TO OPTIMIZE THE minimal detectable difference IN huMAN AIRWAY IMAGES CAPTURED USING optical coherence tomography

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging methodology that can be used to assess human airways. OCT avoids the harmful effects of ionizing radiation and has a high spatial resolution making it well suited for imaging the structure of small airways. Analysis of OCT airway images has typically been performed manually by tracing the airway with a relatively high coefficient of variation. The purpose of this study was to develop an analysis tool to reduce the inter- and intra-observer reproducibility of OCT and improve the ability to detect differences in airways. OCT images from healthy, young human volunteers were used ...
