    1. In vivo time-serial multi-modality optical imaging in a mouse model of ovarian tumorigenesis

      In vivo time-serial multi-modality optical imaging in a mouse model of ovarian tumorigenesis

      Identification of the early microscopic changes associated with ovarian cancer may lead to development of a diagnostic test for high-risk women. In this study we use optical coherence tomography (OCT) and multiphoton microscopy (MPM) (collecting both two photon excited fluorescence [TPEF] and second harmonic generation [SHG]) to image mouse ovaries in vivo at multiple time points. We demonstrate the feasibility of imaging mouse ovaries in vivo during a long-term survival study and identify microscopic changes associated with early tumor development. These changes include alterations in tissue microstructure, as seen by OCT, alterations in cellular fluorescence and morphology, as seen by ...

    2. Serial Endoscopy in Azoxymethane Treated Mice Using Ultra-High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

      Serial Endoscopy in Azoxymethane Treated Mice Using Ultra-High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a minimally invasive, depth-resolved imaging tool that can be implemented in a small diameter endoscope for imaging mouse models of colorectal cancer (CRC). In this study, we utilized ultrahigh resolution (UHR) OCT to serially image the lower colon of azoxymethane (AOM) treated A/J mouse models of CRC in order to monitor the progression of neoplastic transformations and determine if OCT is capable of identifying early disease. Experimental Design: Thirteen AOM treated A/J and two control A/J mice were surveyed at four timepoints (8, 14, 22, and 26 weeks post AOM treatment ...

    3. Endoscopic optical coherence tomography and laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy in a murine colon cancer model

      Background and Objectives The diagnostic feasibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) have been evaluated for human colorectal cancer. This study applies these technologies to a murine model of colorectal adenoma. Study Design/Materials and Methods The lower colon of 10 ApcMin and two C57BL/6J mice was surveyed over five 4-week intervals using a prototype 2.0 mm diameter OCT-LIF endoscope-based system. Four categories were histologically classified: control C57BL/6J, adenomatous, non-diseased regions of adenomatous, and non-diseased ApcMin. OCT images were compared to histology. Spectra from the four categories were compared via the Student's t-test ...
