      Optical coherence tomography imaging of oral mucosa bullous diseases: a preliminary study

      OBJECTIVES: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive technique based on optical imaging with a micrometre resolution. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential role of OCT in evaluating oral mucosa bullous diseases. METHODS: two patients with bullous pemphigoid (BP) and one patient with pemphigus vulgaris (PV) were examined and images of their oral lesions were performed using OCT. RESULTS: In OCT images, the BP blister has a clearly different morphology from the PV one compared to the blistering level. CONCLUSION: This exploratory study suggests that the OCT is able to distinguish epithelial and subepithelial layer in ...

    2. 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 ...
