    Visualization of ex vivo rabbit olfactory mucosa and foramina with three-dimensional optical coherence tomography

    There is increasing interest in developing a minimally invasive imaging modality to safely evaluate dynamic microscopic changes of the olfactory mucosa and cribriform foramina. Herein, we utilized three-dimensional (3D) optical coherence tomography (OCT) to characterize the ex vivo stratified substructure of olfactory mucosa in rabbits and create 3D reconstructed images of olfactory foramina. Olfactory mucosa and cribriform plates from four New Zealand White rabbits were dissected and imaged using two swept-source OCT systems: (1) 1.3-µm (μm) center wavelength, 100-nm bandwidth, 200-kHz sweep rate, and (2) 1.7-μm center wavelength, 120-nm bandwidth, 90-kHz sweep rate. Volumetric OCT images ...
