      Feature Of The Week 10/08/2018: Clinical Utility of Ultrahigh-Speed Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography in Gastroenterology

      Barrett’s esophagus (BE) surveillance is limited by biopsy sampling error. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables microscopic resolution, high speed, volumetric imaging and is commercially available as volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE, NinePoint Medical). Studies investigated cross-sectional OCT dysplasia features, including a diagnostic algorithm (VLE-DA), however, many VLE studies used ex vivo specimens due to challenges in registering biopsy with OCT. We previously demonstrated ultrahigh-speed endoscopic OCT >10x faster than commercial instruments, enabling depth-resolved en face and cross-sectional imaging. This study investigated volumetric en face and cross-sectional OCT for identifying neoplasia. 74 OCT datasets with correlated biopsy/endoscopic mucosal resection histology ...

      Feature Of The Week 09/29/2018: Cornell University Researchers Develop New Method for Ultra-Deep, Speckle-Suppressed, Volumetric Optical Coherence Microscopy

      Multiple scattering is a major barrier that limits the optical imaging depth in scattering media. In order to alleviate this effect, we demonstrate aberration-diverse optical coherence tomography (AD-OCT), which exploits the phase correlation between the deterministic signals from single-scattered photons to suppress the random background caused by multiple scattering and speckle. AD-OCT illuminates the sample volume with diverse aberrated point spread functions, and computationally removes these intentionally applied aberrations. After accumulating 12 astigmatism-diverse OCT volumes, we show a 10 dB enhancement in signal-to-background ratio via a coherent average of reconstructed signals from a USAF target located 7.2 scattering mean ...

      Feature Of The Week 08/31/2018: Spectroscopic Characterization of Si/Mo Thin-film Stack at Extreme Ultraviolet Range

      Using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation for nanoscale imaging has recently seen much interest. As actinic patterned mask inspection tools are not available, chipmakers have to rely on wafer inspection to identify mask defects. To fulfill the requirements of mask inspection, EUV sources with high brightness, high stability (spatial and temporal), and cost effectiveness are needed. In a laser-produced-plasma (LPP) generated EUV system, a high-intensity laser beam is focused onto a tin target to form a hot plasma, which emits ultraviolet light. In this study, a fiber-laser excitation source was used to generate stable 13.5-nm EUV for spectroscopic optical coherence ...

      Objectives This study aimed to determine the effect on long-term survival of using optical coherence tomography (OCT) during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background Angiographic guidance for PCI has substantial limitations. The superior spatial resolution of OCT could translate into meaningful clinical benefits, although limited data exist to date about their effect on clinical endpoints. Methods This was a cohort study based on the Pan-London (United Kingdom) PCI registry, which includes 123,764 patients who underwent PCI in National Health Service hospitals in London between 2005 and 2015. Patients undergoing primary PCI or pressure wire use were excluded leaving 87,166 ...
