    6. Michelson Diagnostics: Imaging Reveals Changes in Blood Vessel Growth in Deadly Melanoma Skin Cance

      Michelson Diagnostics: Imaging Reveals Changes in Blood Vessel Growth in Deadly Melanoma Skin Cance

      A new clinical study has shown that Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography imaging of melanomas (D-OCT) reveals changes to the blood vessels that correlate with the depth of invasion of the melanoma. Researchers believe this could lead to a new faster method of rapidly assessing how dangerous a given melanoma is. A more rapid assessment of the risk would potentially allow patients with more serious invasive disease access to the right treatment more directly, doing away with delays inherent in the traditional diagnosis. The technique may also lead to reducing the number of patients with less aggressive tumours receiving sentinel lymph ...

      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 ...
