    Full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT) for evaluation of endometrial cancer

    Full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT) quickly produces images that resemble conventional pathology images. We examined endometrium in an intra-operative like fashion (more than forty samples). FFOCT-imaged endometrium was recognizable to pathologists and compared favorably with microscopy of the same samples. Additional image enhancements and acquisition techniques were explored and may improve interpretation accuracy. Wider evaluation of images is ongoing, using more pathologist subjects. FFOCT may revolutionize pathology practice in the future by permitting rapid diagnosis and in vivo diagnosis; this is potentially a disruptive new diagnostic technique in pathology.
