      Catheter-based intraluminal optical coherence tomography of the normal human upper urinary tract in vivo: proof of concept and comparison with an ex-vivo porcine model

      Objective : Single-slice, cross-sectional, intraluminal optical-coherence-tomography (OCT) is a new destruction-free optical imaging method that could be applied clinically to examine the upper urinary tract from within. In-vivo access to the human upper urinary tract (UUT) was attempted. Similar performance statistics as in ex-vivo porcine UUT were expected for delineation of different wall layers by in-vivo OCT of human UUTs. MATERIALS AND METHODS : Institutional ethics committee approved OCT in a volunteer sample of 15 patients suspected of having UUT pathology (urolithiasis, strictures, urothelial carcinoma (UC)). Commercially available, catheter-mounted 400-μm-OCT-probes (lateral resolution, < 20 µm) were introduced through a rigid cystoscope and ...

    2. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Ready for the Diagnosis of a Nephrogenic Adenoma of the Urinary Bladder?

      The feasibility of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a non-invasive technique was shown in different fields. We investigated OCT's potential to detect nephrogenic adenoma (NA) within the human bladder. Clinically non-invasive methods like ultrasonography or CT have significant limitations. We applied our experience from OCT-analyses to one case of NA. OCT in vivo examination was performed using an optical fiber which was positioned cystoscopically. Characteristic structures of NA were compared in the OCT-images and the hematoxylin and eosin histological samples. Indeed, the structure and exact position of NA could be defined in relation to surrounding layers. However, a definite ...
