      Feature Of The Week 11/13/10: Researchers from Queen's University in Belfast use OCT to Study of the Effects of Microneedle Geometry on Skin Penetration and Drug Delivery
      Feature Of The Week 11/13/10: Researchers from Queen’s University in Belfast have used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to extensively investigate, for the first time, the effect that microneedle (MN) geometry (MN height, and MN interspacing) and force of application have upon penetration characteristics of soluble poly(methyl vinyl ether-co-maleic anhydride, PMVE/MA) MN arrays into neonatal porcine skin in vitro. The results from OCT investigations were then used to design optimal and suboptimal MN-based drug delivery systems and evaluate their drug delivery profiles cross full thickness and dermatomed neonatal porcine skin in vitro. It was found that ...

      Feature Of The Week 10/31/10: Nicolaus Copernicus University Researchers Describe Work on Massively Parallel Data Processing for OCT

      Feature Of The Week 10/31/10: One of the significant limitations of the Fourier domain OCT is the time of data processing on main processor of the computer (CPU), which is longer than the acquisition time. As a result, the real-time 3D volume rendering is possible only for volumes imaged with a little amount of OCT data. Recent progress in massively parallel processing gives a promising solution to this problem. Recently developed graphic processing units (GPUs) allow not only for a very high speed of 3D rendering, but also, for general purpose parallel numerical calculations with efficiency higher than ...

      Feature Of The Week 10/3/10: Combined Image-Processing Algorithms for Improved OCT Imaging of Prostate Nerves
      Feature Of The Week 10/3/10: The cavernous nerves are responsible for sexual function. These nerves are at risk of injury during surgical dissection and removal of a cancerous prostate gland because of the close proximity of the nerves to the prostate surface. Their microscopic nature also makes it difficult to predict the true course and location of these nerves from one patient to another. These observations may explain in part the wide variability in reported potency rates (9-86%) following prostate cancer surgery. Therefore, any technology capable of providing improved identification, imaging, and visualization of the cavernous nerves during ...
