    3. Feature Of The Week 01/25/15: Detection and characterisation of biopsy tissue using quantitative optical coherence elastogaphy (OCE) in men with suspected prostate cancer.

      Feature Of The Week 01/25/15: Detection and characterisation of biopsy tissue using quantitative optical coherence elastogaphy (OCE) in men with suspected prostate cancer.

      Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common non-cutaneous malignancy in men. Men suspected with PCa are then offered transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) guided prostate biopsies to confirm the diagnosis, which falls short of making a reliable differentiation between cancer and benign hyperplasia of the gland. Suspected cancerous lesions tend to be stiffer (or harder to feel) than benign tissue. Various elastography modalities such as Ultrasound elastography and MRI elastography are known to have poor spatial resolution, which limits their ability to differentiate small lesions and in identifying early and subtle changes. OCT is an optical imaging technique that enables high-resolution, cross-sectional ...

    7. Feature Of The Week 01/18/15: An Integrated Optical Coherence Tomography-Gas Nozzle System for Surgical Laser Ablation Applications

      Feature Of The Week 01/18/15: An Integrated Optical Coherence Tomography-Gas Nozzle System for Surgical Laser Ablation Applications

      Gas assisted laser machining of materials is a common practice in the manufacturing industry. Advantages in using gas assistance include reducing the likelihood of flare-ups in flammable materials and clearing away ablated material in the cutting path. Current surgical procedures and research do not take advantage of this and in the case for resecting osseous tissue, gas assisted ablation can help minimize charring and clear away debris from the surgical site. In the context of neurosurgery, the objective is to cut through osseous tissue without damaging the underlying neural structures. Different inert gas flow rates used in laser machining could ...

      Feature Of The Week 01/11/15: Indiana University Demonstrates Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography at 1 MHz

      Since its first report in 1991, OCT has undergone tremendous advances in almost all aspects of its underlying technologies and methods. For ophthalmic imaging, one of the most impactful advances has been the substantial improvement in image acquisition speed. Increased speed has enabled larger fields of view (FOV) of the retina to be imaged faster and with finer spatial and temporal sampling than ever before. These have greatly expanded the scientific and clinical utility of OCT and have opened new directions into imaging both structure and function of the retina. In this paper, we demonstrate a novel quad-spectrometer adaptive optics ...

      Feature Of The Week 01/04/2015: Zhejiang University Investigates Ultrawide-Field SD-OCT for NDE of Large Glass Surfaces

      Due to its merits of nondestruction and high-resolution, the use of OCT in material industry is increased recently. Besides profilometry of metal, monitoring of printed electronics, nondestructive inspection of glass is another important application. Material defects such as bubbles, impurities, and distortion affect the quality of glass. To realize quality control of glass, a technique for nondestructive inspection of glass is required. Given the large amount of glass productions, a large field-of-view (FOV) is necessary for the system to achieve high-speed inspection. However, as the required FOV becomes large, conventional OCT system always encounters the problem of image distortion because ...
