      Advances in Optical Imaging Technique (Textbook)

      Optical imaging is a pillar in biomedical research from super-resolution microscopy to whole-body imaging in animal models. Optical imaging covers such a large field that it is difficult to decide what was the first medical application .Could it be said that the introduction of spectacles in 1270, in Florence, Italy was the first use of optical imaging in medicine? Or the introduction in 1590 of the compound microscope by the father and son team of Hans and Zacharias Janssen in the Netherlands? It is more likely that optical imaging (as understood by the general scientific community) and the application of ...

    15. Imaging of Intraocular Tumours (Book Chapter)

      Imaging of Intraocular Tumours (Book Chapter)

      Ophthalmology is a specialty that is very reliant on imaging, since the optically optimized structure of the eye lends itself easily to evaluation with photographic, optical and even ultrasound imaging. In ocular oncology, ophthalmologists have the advantage by and large over other cancer physicians of being able to visualize the tumour they are dealing with and to use imaging to record and diagnose the lesion, without always having to take a tissue biopsy. With ever improving resolution this has even led to the concept of the “optical biopsy” using the increasing resolution of optical coherence tomography. For some diagnoses, such ...

    16. Optical Coherence Tomography for Imaging Dental Caries (Book Chapter)

      Optical Coherence Tomography for Imaging Dental Caries (Book Chapter)

      Optical Coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive technique that can be used to measure reflectivity within dental hard tissues. Due to the strong reflection at the tooth surfaces, the contrast between sound and demineralized tissues can be enhanced by use of polarization. Polarized sensitive OCT (PS-OCT) can monitor demineralization and remineralization. Clinical studies have indicated that OCT was able to demonstrated penetration into DEJ more reliably that radiographs in questionable occlusal caries. In root caries, the system was able to discriminate sound dentin from demineralized dentin, assess cementum thickness and determine lesion severity by using shrinkage of dentin as a ...

      High Resolution Imaging in Microscopy and Ophthalmology New Frontiers in Biomedical Optics (Textbook)

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive technique for cross-sectional tissue imaging. It typically uses light in the near-infrared spectral range which has a penetration depth of several hundred microns in tissue. The backscattered light is measured with an interferometric set-up to reconstruct the depth profile of the sample at the selected location. A scanning OCT beam allows for acquisition of cross-sectional images of the tissue structure. Different technical methods are introduced and compared regarding their properties like sensitivity, imaging speed and penetration depth. Regardless of the technical realization, axial resolution and imaging range of an OCT system are determined ...

    19. What’s New in Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography for Glaucoma (Book Chapter)

      What’s New in Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography for Glaucoma (Book Chapter)

      Glaucoma is one of the main clinical areas where OCT angiography is used. In contrast to medical retinal application, where qualitative image analysis and semiquantitative measurements are frequently satisfactory for clinical decision-making, in glaucoma the exact quantitative measurements provide the useful information. Therefore both general ophthalmologists who treat glaucoma patients and glaucoma subspecialists need to be familiar with the measurement details of OCT angiography, the types of complementary structural information necessary to clinical decision-making, and the current limitations of the technology. This chapter attempts to guide the reader through all aspects of glaucoma-related OCT angiography in a stepwise manner.

    22. Optical Coherence Tomography in Multiple Sclerosis (Book Chapter)

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Multiple Sclerosis (Book Chapter)

      The retina consists of multiple layers of different types of cells; the inner layer is known as the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and it consists of unmyelinated optic nerve axons coming from the retinal ganglion cells. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is able to detect subtle changes in the thickness of the retina by means of infrared light reflection, representing retinal and optic nerve damage in neuro-ophthalmology pathologies. In recent years, different research has suggested that retinal OCT is a sensitive and useful tool to measure axonal damage after optic neuropathy and to understand the process of neurodegeneration in multiple ...
