    In vivo spectral domain optical coherence tomography volumetric imaging and spectral Doppler velocimetry of early stage embryonic chicken heart development
    Progress towards understanding embryonic heart development has been hampered by the inability to image embryonic heart structure and simultaneously measure blood flow dynamics, in vivo. We have developed a spectral domain optical coherence tomography system for in vivo volumetric imaging of the chicken embryo heart. We have also developed a technique called spectral Doppler velocimetry (SDV) for quantitative measurement of blood flow dynamics. In vivo volumetric images and SDV measurements of the embryonic heart from initial tube formation to development of endocardial cushions are show. The structural chagnes correlate with changes in blood flow dynamics during these stages of development.
