1. Laryngeal epithelial thickness: a comparison between optical coherence tomography and histology

    Objectives: Optical coherence tomography, an imaging modality using near-infrared light, produces cross-sectional tissue images with a lateral pixel resolution of 10 μm. However, normative data is first needed on epithelial thickness for lesion characterisation, and, to date, little exists. The purpose of our study is to measure normal laryngeal epithelial thickness by in vivo optical coherence tomography, and compare these values to those obtained from fixed ex-vivo laryngectomy specimens. Design and Setting: Prospective at a single medical center in California, United States. Participants: A total of 116 patients undergoing operative endoscopy. Main outcome measures: Optical coherence tomography images of clinically ...
