    Full field optical coherence tomography of prostate biopsies: A step towards pre-histological diagnosis?

    Objectives To evaluate the value of full field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT) for cancer detection on prostate biopsies Patients and methods Eight consecutive patients who underwent prostate biopsies for an elevated PSA or suspicious DRE findings were included in the study. For each patient, one to three biopsy cores were imaged with FFOCT immediately after sampling. Images obtained were analyzed by a pathologist blinded to the pathological results, and classified into three categories: non-cancerous tissue, suspicion of malignancy and prostate carcinoma. A pathological correlation analysis was further performed. Results Sixteen biopsy cores were analyzed. The median FFOCT procedure time was ...
