    Investigation of alveolar tissue deformations using OCT combined with fluorescence microscopy

    In critical care medicine, artificial ventilation is a life saving tool providing sufficient blood oxygenation to patients suffering from respiratory failure. Essential for their survival is the use of protective ventilation strategies to prevent further lung damage due to ventilator induced lung injury (VILI). Since there is only little known about implications of lung tissue overdistension on the alveolar level, especially in the case of diseased lungs, this research deals with the investigation of lung tissue deformation on a microscale. A combined setup utilizing optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal fluorescence microscopy, is used to study the elastic behavior of ...
