      Minimally invasive intrathecal spinal cord imaging with optical coherence tomography

      ignificance: Imaging of the spinal cord is challenging due to the surrounding bony anatomy, physiologic motion, and the small diameter of the spinal cord. This precludes the use of non-invasive imaging techniques in assessing structural changes related to trauma and evaluating residual function. Aim: The purpose of our research was to apply endovascular technology and techniques and construct a preclinical animal model of intrathecal spinal cord imaging using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Approach: Five animals (2 Yorkshire Swine and 3 New Zealand Rabbits) were utilized. Intrathecal access was gained using a 16-guage Tuohy, and an OCT catheter was advanced under ...

    2. Endovascular optical coherence tomography imaging in cerebrovascular disease

      Endovascular optical coherence tomography imaging in cerebrovascular disease

      Endovascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the highest resolution imaging modality currently available with spatial resolution of 10 µm. Although originally developed for interventional cardiology, the ability to visualize the luminal environment and anatomy, along with the stent-vessel interaction could be of great utility for various cerebrovascular diseases, and the adoption of endovascular OCT imaging in the evolving field of interventional neuroradiology seems instinctive. The purpose of this study is to conduct a systematic review of the literature regarding applications of endovascular OCT in the diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular diseases. In addition, the authors report their institutional experience with ...
