    Integrated Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Coherence Microscopy Imaging of Ex Vivo Human Renal Tissues

    Purpose We evaluated the feasibility of using optical coherence tomography and optical coherence microscopy technology to assess human kidney morphology. Materials and Methods A total of 35 renal specimens from 19 patients, consisting of 12 normal tissues and 23 tumors (16 clear cell renal cell carcinomas, 5 papillary renal cell carcinomas and 2 oncocytomas) were imaged ex vivo after surgical resection. Optical coherence tomography and optical coherence microscopy images were compared to corresponding hematoxylin and eosin histology to identify characteristic features of normal and pathological renal tissues. Three pathologists blinded to histology evaluated the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence ...
