    1. Comparative study on the detection of early dental caries using thermo-photonic lock-in imaging and optical coherence tomography

      Comparative study on the detection of early dental caries using thermo-photonic lock-in imaging and optical coherence tomography

      Early detection of dental caries is known to be the key to the effectiveness of therapeutic and preventive approaches in dentistry. However, existing clinical detection techniques, such as radiographs, are not sufficiently sensitive to detect and monitor the progression of caries at early stages. As such, in recent years, several optics-based imaging modalities have been proposed for the early detection of caries. The majority of these techniques rely on the enhancement of light scattering in early carious lesions, while a few of them are based on the enhancement of light absorption at early caries sites. In this paper, we report ...

    2. Clinical Translation of Tethered Confocal Microscopy Capsule for Unsedated Diagnosis of Eosinophilic Esophagitis

      Clinical Translation of Tethered Confocal Microscopy Capsule for Unsedated Diagnosis of Eosinophilic Esophagitis

      Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a widely used procedure, posing significant financial burden on both healthcare systems and patients. Moreover, EGD is time consuming, sometimes difficult to tolerate, and suffers from an imperfect diagnostic yield as the limited number of collected biopsies does not represent the whole organ. In this paper, we report on technological and clinical feasibility of a swallowable tethered endomicroscopy capsule, which is administered without sedation, to image large regions of esophageal and gastric mucosa at the cellular level. To demonstrate imaging capabilities, we conducted a human pilot study (n = 17) on Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) patients and healthy volunteers ...

    5. Optimal selection of laser modulation parameters in photothermal optical coherence tomography

      Optimal selection of laser modulation parameters in photothermal optical coherence tomography

      Photothermal optical coherence tomography (PT-OCT) employs a secondary intensity-modulated photothermal laser to create modulated thermal strains that cause variations of the refractive index in the proximity of absorbing chromophores. These variations are directly detected with phase-sensitive OCT and offer insight to the molecular composition and thermo-elastic properties of the sample. Here, we define optimal PT laser modulation parameters by investigating the effect of PT laser power and modulation frequency on the ensuing thermal waves and thermal waves’ impact on the spatial resolution of PT-OCT imaging based on numerical simulations of PT-OCT and samples containing point absorbers.
