    2. Optical Coherence Tomography: an example of examination of oil painting on canvas

      Optical Coherence Tomography: an example of examination of oil painting on canvas

      Professor Piotr Targowsky, from the Nicolaus Copernicus University of Poland examinates the Portrait of Sir John Wylie, an oil painting on canvas, by using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).
      OCT offers a micrometre level in-depth resolution and is well suited for the investigation of fine details of structures which moderately absorb infrared light, such as varnishes, glazes and underdrawings of easel paintings, reverse paintings on glass, glazes on porcelain and faience, jade, historic glass and amber amongst others. Images obtained by OCT are usually presented in the convenient manner of cross-sectional views, similar to microscopic photographs of cross-sections of samples collected ...

    5. OCT - catching macular degeneration before vision loss

      OCT - catching macular degeneration before vision loss

      Growing old leads to a growing number of health problems, including those that challenge our ability to see. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that -- until recently -- robbed the elderly of the ability to read, drive and see the faces of their loved ones. Thanks to the invention of OCT, doctors can catch the disease before vision is lost. And with the aid of new drugs, AMD can be stopped in its tracks.

    6. The Benefits and Pitfalls of OCT Angiography by Professor Giovanni Staurenghi

      The Benefits and Pitfalls of OCT Angiography by Professor Giovanni Staurenghi

      Professor Giovanni Staurenghi, University of Milan, discusses the unique attributes of hybrid angiography at the Heidelberg Engineering 5th Annual Masterclass in May 2016. The presentation includes a thoughtful and rational look at the role of OCT angiography* in the clinical decision making process as part of a multimodality imaging approach to patient investigation and diagnosis.

    7. OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY GUIDED ANGIOPLASTY IN A RIGHT CORONARY ARTERY. DR BINOY JOHN (JAN 2015)

      OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY GUIDED ANGIOPLASTY IN A RIGHT CORONARY ARTERY. DR BINOY JOHN (JAN 2015)

      Optical coherence tomography is the latest technology, beyond conventional contrast guided angiography, used in excellent imaging of the coronary arteries from inside the artery using near-infra-red light source delivered via an optical fibre placed which is positioned inside the artery of interest. OCT provides a lot of information not otherwise available from conventional angiograms using dye or contrast. OCT can also be used to guide angioplasty and stenting with far superior results and long term safety from complications. The best use of OCT is to confirm good apposition of stents to the artery wall after angioplasty. Malapposition of stents can ...

    9. Optical Coherence Tomography Identifies Lower Labial Salivary Gland Surface Density in Cystic Fibrosis

      Optical Coherence Tomography Identifies Lower Labial Salivary Gland Surface Density in Cystic Fibrosis

      The labial minor salivary glands (LSGs) are easily accessible mucus-secreting structures of the alimentary tract that may provide new information on the basis of gastrointestinal complications of cystic fibrosis (CF). It was shown that they are destructed in the course of cystic fibrosis. We employed wide-field, micrometer resolution in vivo optical coherence tomography to assess the surface density of LSGs in 18 patients with CF and 18 healthy subjects. The median LSGs’ surface densities in CF patients, and in the control group were 4.32 glands/cm2 and 6.58 glands/cm2, respectively (p = 0.006; Mann-Whitney U test). A ...
