1. Quantification of glucose diffusion in arterial tissues by using optical coherence tomography

    Several investigations suggest that the early stages of atherosclerosis are modulated by the selective permeability of the vascular tissue to pro-inflammatory molecules of different molecular weights. Up to date, a few experiments have been performed to study the permeability of arterial tissue to different molecules. This is primarily due to an absence of an experimental technique capable of depth-resolved, accurate and sensitive assessment of arterial permeability. In this paper, we report our pilot results on nondestructive quantification of glucose diffusion in animal arteries in vitro by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) technique. Permeability of glucose in animal's aorta was ...
