      Feature of the Week 04/24/2016: μOCT Imaging Using Depth of Focus Extension by Self-Imaging Wavefront Division in a Common-Path Fiber Optic Probe

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an attractive medical modality due to its ability to acquire high-resolution, cross-sectional images inside the body using flexible, small-diameter, scanning fiber optic probes. Conventional, cross-sectional OCT imaging technologies have approximately 10-μm axial resolution and 30-μm lateral resolution, specifications that enable the visualization of microscopic architectural morphology. While this resolution is useful for many clinical applications, it is insufficient for resolving individual cells that characterize many diseases. To address this gap, a supercontinuum-laser-based, μm-resolution OCT (μOCT) system and a 500 μm-diameter, extended depth of focus single fiber optic probe for endoscopic and intravascular imaging ...

      OCT Angiography: Technology and Applications Webcast April 26th 2016, 1:00 EST

      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has become the most widely used optical technique for medical imaging over the last decade. The technology is standard of care for diagnosis and disease management for several ophthalmic conditions and represents a market of over 500 million US dollars per year. Like other established medical imaging technologies, OCT is making its move from structural to functional imaging with advent of OCT angiography. However, unlike most other techniques OCT angiography does not rely on external contrast agents, making it particularly useful. This presentation will discuss principles and technology behind OCT angiography. A brief history of development ...

      Feature of the Week 04/02/2016:  Contrast-Enhanced Optical Coherence Tomography with Picomolar Sensitivity for Functional in vivo Imaging (with Audio)

      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) enables real-time imaging of living tissues with cellular resolution over large 3D fields of view.[1] However, functional and molecular capabilities for OCT remain elusive due to the difficulties of distinguishing exogenous contrast agents from intrinsic tissue scattering and absorption. Previous reports have detailed the use of magnetic probes,[2] absorbent dyes,[3] and gold nanoparticles[4] to produce OCT contrast enhancement through various mechanisms. In the current study, optimized large gold nanorods (LGNRs) and a customized aberration-free spectral detection algorithm were developed to demonstrate an improved platform for molecular imaging with OCT. LGNRs, which produce ...
