    2. Combination of High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography and Raman Spectroscopy for Improved Staging and Grading in Bladder Cancer

      Combination of High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography and Raman Spectroscopy for Improved Staging and Grading in Bladder Cancer

      We present a combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Raman spectroscopy (RS) for improved diagnosis and discrimination of different stages and grades of bladder cancer ex vivo by linking the complementary information provided by these two techniques. Bladder samples were obtained from biopsies dissected via transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURBT). As OCT provides structural information rapidly, it was used as a red-flag technology to scan the bladder wall for suspicious lesions with the ability to discriminate malignant tissue from healthy urothelium. Upon identification of degenerated tissue via OCT, RS was implemented to determine the molecular characteristics via ...

    3. Non-invasive multimodal optical coherence and photoacoustic tomography for human skin imaging

      Non-invasive multimodal optical coherence and photoacoustic tomography for human skin imaging

      The cutaneous vasculature is involved in many diseases. Current clinical examination techniques, however, cannot resolve the human vasculature with all plexus in a non-invasive manner. By combining an optical coherence tomography system with angiography extension and an all optical photoacoustic tomography system, we can resolve in 3D the blood vessels in human skin for all plexus non-invasively. With a customized imaging unit that permits access to various parts of patients’ bodies, we applied our multimodality imaging system to investigate several different types of skin conditions. Quantitative vascular analysis is given for each of the dermatological conditions to show the potential ...

    4. Comprehensive vascular imaging using optical coherence tomography-based angiography and photoacoustic tomography

      Comprehensive vascular imaging using optical coherence tomography-based angiography and photoacoustic tomography

      Studies have proven the relationship between cutaneous vasculature abnormalities and dermatological disorders, but to image vasculature noninvasively in vivo , advanced optical imaging techniques are required. In this study, we imaged a palm of a healthy volunteer and three subjects with cutaneous abnormalities with photoacoustic tomography (PAT) and optical coherence tomography with angiography extension (OCTA). Capillaries in the papillary dermis that are too small to be discerned with PAT are visualized with OCTA. From our results, we speculate that the PA signal from the palm is mostly from hemoglobin in capillaries rather than melanin, knowing that melanin concentration in volar skin ...
