      Feature Of The Week 08/01/2018: OCT Shows Promise in Effecting Outcomes after Coronary Intervention Being Associated with Improved Long-Term Survival

      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 ...

      Feature Of The Week 07/01/2018: Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography with a Flexible Fiber Bundle

      We demonstrate in vivo endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in the forward direction using a flexible fiber bundle (FB). In comparison to current conventional forward-looking probe schemes, our approach simplifies the endoscope design by avoiding the integration of any beam steering components in the distal probe end due to two-dimensional scanning of a focused light beam over the proximal FB surface. We describe the challenges that arise when OCT imaging with an FB is performed, such as multimoding or cross coupling. The performance of different FBs varying in parameters, such as numerical aperture, core size, core structure, and flexibility ...

      Feature of the Week 06/24/2018: Duke University Researchers Show Exciting Advances in Live OCT Volumes in Immersive Virtual Reality

      Virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays are an attractive technology for viewing intrasurgical optical coherence tomography (OCT) volumes because they liberate surgeons from microscope oculars. We demonstrate real-time, interactive viewing of OCT volumes in a commercial HTC Vive immersive VR system using previously reported ray casting techniques. Furthermore, we show interactive manipulation and sectioning of volumes using handheld controllers and guidance of mock surgical procedures in porcine eyes exclusively within VR. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first immersive VR-OCT viewer with stereo ray casting volumetric renders, arbitrary sectioning planes, and live acquisition support. We believe VR-OCT volume ...
