    Wide-field optical coherence tomography (WF-OCT) for near real-time, point-of-care assessment of margin status in breast-conserving surgery specimens: Results of a feasibility study at a high-volume single-centre

    Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography (WF-OCT) is a non-destructive, non-contact light imaging modality capable of label-free visualization of the internal microscopic architecture of breast tissue specimens. Its unique combination of high-resolution imaging in near real-time with tissue penetration depths approaching 2-mm makes it a promising imaging modality for obtaining detailed surgical margin status in breast-conserving surgery (BCS) specimens. A prototype WF-OCT imaging platform developed by Perimeter Medical Imaging, Inc. (Toronto, Canada) has permitted fully-automated, dynamically-focused visualization of margin widths around the intact surfaces of freshly excised BCS specimens. Herein are reported the results of a feasibility study at a high-volume single-centre ...
