    Structural and functional optical coherence tomography imaging of the colon  (Thesis)

    Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains the second deadliest cancer in the United States, despite steady reduction in mortality rate over the last three decades. Colonoscopy is the gold-standard screening modality with high sensitivity and specificity to mature polyps. However, the miss rate for small (< 5 mm) lesions is estimated to be as high as 26%. Because the five-year survival rate for CRC detected at the local stage is 90%, there is a clear need for a screening procedure that is sensitive to these small lesions. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a major biomedical imaging modality since its invention in 1991 ...
