      Feature Of The Week 5/16/10: Scatterer Size-Based Analysis of Optical Coherence Tomography Images Using Spectral Estimation Techniques
      Feature Of The Week 5/16/10: A great challenge in the fight against cancer is the timely diagnosis of the disease which greatly enhances the chance of survival. Optical imaging can play an important role in the process providing powerful, non-invasive, diagnostic tools. However, in order to reach their full potential, optical techniques must be able to delineate the changes associated with the early stages of cancer (known as dysplasia and carcinoma in situ.) These include sub-micron variations such as disparities in nuclear number and size, sub-nuclear modifications, and variations in other cellular organelles. Currently, this level of detail ...

      Feature Of The Week 4/11/10: Noninvasive Assessment of Healing of Bacteria Infected and Uninfected Wounds using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Feature Of The Week 4/11/10: Microbial infection is one of the major factors for the impairment of wound healing as the microbial toxins have a detrimental effect on collagen in the wounded tissue. Infected wounds can cause increased trauma, could severely compromise the overall health of an individual as well as increase the cost of treatment. To facilitate a faster healing of wounds it will be desirable if the signatures of microbial infection in wounds can be monitored non-invasively. OCT is an ideal non-invasive imaging technique for this purpose as it provides high-resolution cross-sectional images of tissues with ...

      Feature Of The Week 4/4/10: Ce3+:YAG double-clad crystal fiber based optical coherence tomography on fish cornea
      Feature Of The Week 4/4/10: With the tremendous success of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in recent years, high resolution and high image fidelity are getting more importance. So far, several approaches have been proposed to achieve high axial resolution, such as multiplexed superluminescent diode, femtosecond laser, continuum generation from photonic crystal fiber, and xenon illuminator. In general, these solutions are either have high cost, exhibit bumpy spectrum, or both. In contrast, spontaneous emission light can generate broadband and near-Gaussian spectrum, but the power level is often very weak. Using waveguide to collect the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) can ...

    20. Massachusetts General Hospital announces creation of international registry for coronary optical coherence tomography

      Massachusetts General Hospital announces creation of international registry for coronary optical coherence tomography
      Massachusetts General Hospital, together with a coalition of 20 international sites in five countries, announced the creation of the world’s largest registry of patients who have had optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the coronary arteries. OCT is an intravascular imaging technology that researchers hope will give doctors a better means to identify the dangerous vulnerable plaques that cause heart attacks and sudden cardiac death. When a vulnerable plaque in the coronary artery ruptures the result for the patient can be catastrophic. The ruptured plaques can block blood flow to the heart, and cardiologists predict they cause two-thirds to three-quarters ...

      Feature Of The Week 3/21/10: An Update on Novel Non-Invasive Approaches for Periodontal Diagnosis
      Feature Of The Week 3/21/10: Periodontitis is currently diagnosed almost entirely on the basis of its clinical manifestations: signs of gingival inflammation (e.g., redness and swelling), probing depth (PD), and level of periodontal attachment or amount of alveolar bone loss. In fact, alveolar bone and periodontal attachment loss represent the results of the destructive aspects of the host defense mechanisms responding to opportunistic infections by bacteria present in the gingival sulcus as well as the direct effects of virulence factors of periodontal pathogens. Alveolar bone and periodontal attachment loss cannot be used to predict the susceptibility to ...

      Feature Of The Week 3/14/10: Multimodal Imaging with Integrated Photoacoustic Microscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography
      Feature Of The Week 3/14/10: Photoacoustic Ophthalmoscopy (PAOM) is based on Laser-scanning Optical Resolution Photoacoustic Microscopy (LS-OR-PAM), which is a branch of photoacoustic microscopy (PAM). LS-OR-PAM was first developed with the collaboration of Dr. Hao Zhang's lab at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Dr. Shuliang Jiao lab at University of Southern California. PAOM detects the photoacoustic signal induced by pulsed laser light shined onto the retina. By using a stationary ultrasonic transducer in contact with the eyelids and scanning only the laser light across the retina, PAOM provides volumetric imaging of the retinal micro-vasculature and retinal pigment epithelium ...

      Feature Of The Week 3/7/10: OCT Guidance for Femtosecond Laser Treatment of Presbyopia
      Feature Of The Week 3/7/10: Despite the clear and continually growing commercial success of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in a wide range of clinical fields including ophthalmology, cardiology, and microscopy there remain few commercialized examples of OCT integrated with real-time surgical treatment procedures. However, those examples cannot be too far off based on some of the interesting advances in the OCT research world. One recent example was the demonstration of OCT guidance for femtosecond laser treatment of presbyopia which was demonstrated by The Biomedical Optics Department at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V.
