    1. Optical Coherence Tomography: The Intraoperative Assessment of Lymph Nodes in Breast Cancer

      Optical Coherence Tomography: The Intraoperative Assessment of Lymph Nodes in Breast Cancer
      During breast-conserving surgeries, axillary lymph nodes draining from the primary tumor site are removed for disease staging. Although a high number of lymph nodes are often resected during sentinel and lymph-node dissections, only a relatively small percentage of nodes are found to be metastatic, a fact that must be weighed against potential complications such as lymphedema.Without a real-time in vivo or in situ intraoperative imaging tool to provide a microscopic assessment of the nodes, postoperative paraffin section histopathological analysis currently remains the gold standard in assessing the status of lymph nodes. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a high-resolution real-time microscopic ...

    2. Intraoperative Evaluation of Breast Tumor Margins with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Intraoperative Evaluation of Breast Tumor Margins with Optical Coherence Tomography
      As breast cancer screening rates increase, smaller and more numerous lesions are being identified earlier, leading to more breast-conserving surgical procedures. Achieving a clean surgical margin represents a technical challenge with important clinical implications. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is introduced as an intraoperative high-resolution imaging technique that assesses surgical breast tumor margins by providing real-time microscopic images up to 2 mm beneath the tissue surface. In a study of 37 patients split between training and study groups, OCT images covering 1 cm2 regions were acquired from surgical margins of lumpectomy specimens, registered with ink, and correlated with corresponding histologic sections ...

    3. Coherent optical imaging and guided interventions in breast cancer: translating technology into clinical applications

      Stephen A. Boppart, Freddy T. Nguyen, Adam M. Zysk et al. Breast cancer continues to be one of the most widely diagnosed forms of cancer in women and the second leading type of cancer deaths for women. The metastatic spread and staging of breast cancer is typically evaluated through the nodal assessment of the regional lymphatic system, and often this is p ... [Proc. SPIE Int. Soc. Opt.
