    1. Measurement of Oral Epithelial Thickness by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Measurement of Oral Epithelial Thickness by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a real-time, in-situ, non-invasive imaging device that is able to perform a cross-sectional evaluation of tissue microstructure based on the specific intensity of back-scattered and reflected light. The aim of the present study was to define normal values of epithelial thickness within the oral cavity. OCT measurements of epithelial thickness were performed in 28 healthy patients at six different locations within the oral cavity. Image analysis was performed using Image J 1.52 software. The healthy epithelium has a mean thickness of 335.59 ± 150.73 µm. According to its location within the oral cavity ...

    2. The potential role of in vivo optical coherence tomography for evaluating oral soft tissue: a systematic review

      The potential role of in vivo optical coherence tomography for evaluating oral soft tissue: a systematic review

      Background The introduction of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in dentistry enabled the integration of already existing clinical and laboratory investigations in the study the oral cavity. This systematic review, presents an overview of the literature, to evaluate the usefulness of in vivo OCT for diagnosing oral soft tissues lesions, to compare the OCT results with traditional histology, and to identify limitations in prior studies so as to improve OCT applications. Methods: We performed a review of the literature using different search engines (PubMed, ISI Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library) employing MeSH terms such as “optical coherence tomography” and ...
