    1. Optical coherence tomography in gastroenterology: a review and future outlook

      Optical coherence tomography in gastroenterology: a review and future outlook

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technique optically analogous to ultrasound that can generate depth-resolved images with micrometer-scale resolution. Advances in fiber optics and miniaturized actuation technologies allow OCT imaging of the human body and further expand OCT utilization in applications including but not limited to cardiology and gastroenterology. This review article provides an overview of current OCT development and its clinical utility in the gastrointestinal tract, including disease detection/differentiation and endoscopic therapy guidance, as well as a discussion of its future applications.

    2. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) prior to peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) reduces procedural time and bleeding: a multicenter international collaborative study

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) prior to peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) reduces procedural time and bleeding: a multicenter international collaborative study

      Background Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has emerged as an endoscopic treatment of achalasia. There are no pre-procedural imaging modalities to predict the safest and the most efficacious approach. Aim To evaluate the use of optimal coherence tomography (OCT) in providing a pre-procedural esophageal assessment. Methods Patients undergoing POEM from July 2013 to November 2015 were captured in a multicenter, international registry. Patients who underwent OCT pre-POEM (“OCT arm”) were compared to patients without pre-POEM OCT (“control arm”). OCT images were assessed for the degree of vascularity and the thickness of the circular muscular layer, and an approach was determined. Results ...

    3. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangioscopy and Advanced Biliary Imaging

      Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangioscopy and Advanced Biliary Imaging

      Developments in endoscopic retrograde cholangioscopy provide multiple new advanced methods of biliary imaging. Cholangioscopy provides direct visualization of epithelium with white light as well as advanced modalities, such as narrow band imaging and autofluorescence. In vivo histologic images can be achieved with confocal endomicroscopy. Cross-sectional imaging is also possible with intraductal ultrasonography and optical coherence tomography. This article describes these advanced imaging techniques, which can be used together to assist in the diagnosis of biliary strictures and lesions.
