    1. Spectral-domain low coherence interferometry/optical coherence tomography system for fine needle breast biopsy guidance

      Spectral-domain low coherence interferometry/optical coherence tomography system for fine needle breast biopsy guidance
      A novel technology and instrumentation for fine needle aspiration (FNA) breast biopsy guidance is presented. This technology is based on spectral-domain low coherence interferometry (SD-LCI). The method, apparatus, and preliminary in vitro/in vivo results proving the viability of the method and apparatus are presented in detail. An advanced tissue classification algorithm, preliminarily tested on breast tissue specimens and a mouse model of breast cancer is presented as well. Over 80% sensitivity and specificity in differentiating all tissue types and 93% accuracy in differentiating fatty tissue from fibrous or tumor tissue was obtained with this technology and apparatus. These results ...

    3. Three dimensional tracking for volumetric spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

      Gopi Maguluri, Mircea Mujat, B. H. Park, K. H. Kim, Wei Sun, N. V. Iftimia, R. D. Ferguson, Daniel X. Hammer, Teresa C. Chen, Johannes F. de BoerWe present a three-dimensional (3D) tracker for a clinical ophthalmic spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system that combines depth-tracking with lateral tracking, providing a stabilized reference frame for 3D data recording and post acquisition analysis. The depth-tracking ... [Opt. Express 15, 16808-16817 (2007)]
