    1. In Vivo Detection of the Effect of Electroacupuncture on “Zusanli” Acupoint in Rats with Adjuvant-Induced Arthritis through Optical Coherence Tomography

      In Vivo Detection of the Effect of Electroacupuncture on “Zusanli” Acupoint in Rats with Adjuvant-Induced Arthritis through Optical Coherence Tomography

      This study aimed to investigate the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) treatment through optical coherence tomography (OCT) in vivo on rats with adjuvant-induced arthritis. OCT images were obtained from the ankle of the right hind paws of the rats in control, model, and EA groups before modelling and 1 day, 8 days, 15 days, 22 days, and 29 days after modelling. Results demonstrated that the OCT signal of the ankle of the right hind paws of the rats was indistinct compared to 1 day after modelling and before modelling in the EA group. In the EA group, the light averaged attenuation ...

    2. Quantification of Glucose Diffusion in Human Lung Tissues by Using Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Quantification of Glucose Diffusion in Human Lung Tissues by Using Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      In this study, we report permeability coefficients of 30% glucose diffusion by the optical coherence tomography signal slope (OCTSS) method in four kind of human lung tissue in vitro: normal lung tissue, benign granulomatosis lung tissue, squamous cell carcinoma, and adenocarcinoma tumor. To quantify the permeability coefficient of the agent, the monitored region was the 80 um thickness at a tissue depth of approximately 230 um from the surface. The permeability coefficients of 30% glucose from 10 independent experiments were averaged and found to be (1.35 ± 0.13)×10 −5 cm/s from the normal lung tissue, (1.78 ...

    3. In vitro study of ultrasound and different-concentration glycerolinduced changes in human skin optical attenuation assessed with optical coherence tomography

      In vitro study of ultrasound and different-concentration glycerolinduced changes in human skin optical attenuation assessed with optical coherence tomography

      Previous studies have demonstrated the ultrasound-induced skin optical clearing enhancement with topical application of 60% glycerol (G) on in vitro porcine skin and in vivo human skin. Our purpose was to find the relation between the effect of optical skin clearing and different concentrations of glycerol and to find more effective ultrasound-glycerol combinations on optical skin clearing. The enhancement effect of ultrasound [Sonophoresis (SP) delivery] in combination with 40% G, 60% G, and 80% G on in vitro human skin optical clearing was investigated. Light imaging depths of skin were measured using optical coherence tomography. Different concentrations of glycerol and ...

    4. Synergistic Effect of Ultrasound and Thiazone–PEG 400 on Human Skin Optical Clearing In Vivo

      Synergistic Effect of Ultrasound and Thiazone–PEG 400 on Human Skin Optical Clearing In Vivo

      In this paper, we propose a new physical method in combination with mixed solution of thiazone and polyethylene glycol 400 (thiazone PEG 400 solution) penetration into tissue to assess the skin optical clearing. Four treatments were performed: (1) control group (C); (2) polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG400); (3) 0.25% thiazone (0.25%T); (4) 0.25% thiazone and 5-min ultrasound (0.25%T/SP). The diffuse reflectance spectra and imaging depth of human skin in vivo at different times were measured by spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT). The optical clearing efficacy of skin was qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed. The ...

    5. Potential ability of hematoporphyrin to enhance an optical coherence tomographic image of gastric cancer in vivo in mice

      Abstract. An ideal diagnostic system for the tumor tissues should be able to detect and define the location of tumor tissues and the early development of malignant diseases. There is great need for enhancement of imaging ability to tumor tissues. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is used in detection and location of varied tumor tissues. In order to improve the sensitivity and specificity of an OCT image, hematoporphyrin as a new type of contrast agent was used in this study. The orthotopic graft model of gastric cancer in nude mice was used. The image formations of the tumor tissues without and ...

    6. Quantitative analysis on tongue inspection in traditional Chinese medicine using optical coherence tomography

      Tongue inspection (TI) is an important and unique diagnostic method in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), because significant connections between various viscerae diseases and abnormalities in the tongue have been verified. In TCM, TI is simple and non invasive, but in clinical applications, TI is subjectively based on the experience and technique of physicians. To avoid this problem, optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging is introduced here for TI. We study OCT imaging in rats in vivo from chronic gastritis group (model) and normal group (control) and quantitatively analyze the relative parameters, such as the thickness and the moisture degree of TI ...
