    Optical Coherence Tomography: A Review (Book Chapter)

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT), with polarization-sensitive (PS), Doppler, and autofluorescence (AF) capabilities, is emerging as a promising bronchoscopic diagnostic tool. In the upper and central airways, it allows accurate real-time airway measurements to assist bronchoscopic assessment of obstructive sleep apnea, severity of tracheomalacia, airway stenosis, or extent of tumor involvement into the bronchial wall or distally beyond the bronchoscopic view. OCT can visualize cellular and extracellular structures at and below the tissue surface with near histologic resolution as well as to provide three-dimensional imaging of the airways. Blood vessels in the bronchial wall or peribronchial space can be displayed using ...
