    1. NIR-II dual-modal optical coherence tomography and photoacoustic imaging-guided dose-control cancer chemotherapy

      NIR-II dual-modal optical coherence tomography and photoacoustic imaging-guided dose-control cancer chemotherapy

      In this study, an organic nano-drug delivery platform was constructed as a biocompatible cancer chemotherapeutic system, in which clini-cally approved sorafenib was loaded in the redox-responsive polymeric micelles, enabling dose-control release of drug to cancer tissues. In addition, visualizing tumor microenvironment changes is also essential for cancer chemotherapy, which can provide a priori and feedback control of drug delivery with reduced side effect. Therefore, second near-infrared window (NIR-II) dual-modal optical coherence tomogra-phy (OCT) and photoacoustic imaging were performed for real-time visualizing tumor microenvironment changes in vivo during chemo-therapy. In particular, the tumor angiogenesis, the vascular networks density change, and the ...

    2. Monitoring of injury induced brain regeneration of the adult zebrafish by using optical coherence tomography

      Monitoring of injury induced brain regeneration of the adult zebrafish by using optical coherence tomography

      The adult zebrafish has pronounced regenerative capacity of the brain, which makes it an ideal model organism of vertebrate biology for the investigation of recovery of central nervous system injuries. The aim of this study was to employ spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system for long-term in vivo monitoring of tissue regeneration using an adult zebrafish model of brain injury. Based on a 1325 nm light source and two high-speed galvo mirrors, the SD-OCT system can offer a large field of view of the three-dimensional (3D) brain structures with high imaging resolution (12 μm axial and 13 μm lateral) at ...

    3. Long-term in vivo monitoring of injury induced brain regeneration of the adult zebrafish by using spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Long-term in vivo monitoring of injury induced brain regeneration of the adult zebrafish by using spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Brain regenerative studies require precise visualization of the morphological structures. However, few imaging methods can effectively detect the adult zebrafish brain in real time with high resolution and good penetration depth. Long-term in vivo monitoring of brain injuries and brain regeneration on adult zebrafish is achieved in this study by using 1325 nm spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). The SD-OCT is able to noninvasively visualize the skull injury and brain lesion of adult zebrafish. Valuable phenomenon such as the fractured skull, swollen brain tissues, and part of the brain regeneration process can be conducted based on the SD-OCT images at ...

    4. Retroreflective-type Janus microspheres as a novel contrast agent for enhanced optical coherence tomography

      Retroreflective-type Janus microspheres as a novel contrast agent for enhanced optical coherence tomography

      Working principle and SEM image of Janus microsphere (top). Enhanced OCT imaging (bottom) of Janus microspheres in zebrafish stomach (blue dash line) and sinusoids (green arrows) of nude liver. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a well-developed technology that utilizes near-infrared light to reconstruct three-dimensional images of biological tissues with micrometer resolution. Improvements of the imaging contrast of the OCT technique are able to further widen its extensive biomedical applications. In this study, Janus microspheres were developed and used as a positive contrast agent for enhanced OCT imaging. Phantom and ex vivo liver tissue experiments as well as in vivo animal ...

    5. In vivo three-dimensional characterization of the adult zebrafish brain using a 1325 nm spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system with the 27 frame/s video rate

      In vivo three-dimensional characterization of the adult zebrafish brain using a 1325 nm spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system with the 27 frame/s video rate

      In this study, a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system was used for noninvasive imaging of the adult zebrafish brain. Based on a 1325 nm light source and two high-speed galvo mirrors, our SD-OCT system can offer a large field of view of brain morphology with high resolution (12 μm axial and 13 μm lateral) at video rate (27 frame/s). In vivo imaging of both the control and injured brain was performed using adult zebrafish model. The recovered results revealed that olfactory bulb, optic commissure, telencephalon, tectum opticum, cerebellum, medulla, preglomerular complex and posterior tuberculum could be clearly identified ...
