    Diagnosing Lung Carcinomas with Optical Coherence Tomography

    Rationale: Lung carcinoma diagnosis on tissue biopsy can be challenging due to insufficient tumor and lack of architectural information. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution imaging modality that visualizes tissue microarchitecture in volumes orders of magnitude larger than biopsy. It has been proposed that OCT could potentially replace tissue biopsy. Objectives: We aim to determine if OCT could replace histology in diagnosing lung carcinomas . We develop and validate OCT interpretation criteria for common primary lung carcinomas : adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and poorly differentiated carcinoma . Methods: A total of 82 ex vivo tumor samples were included in a blinded ...
