    1. 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.

    3. 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 ...

    5. 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 ...

    8. New Endoscopic Technology Helps Diagnose Esophageal Cancer Quickly

      New Endoscopic Technology Helps Diagnose Esophageal Cancer Quickly

      Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest growing cancer's in America and Pam Sain has been raising money to to raise awareness and get in the fight. After losing her father to esophageal cancer, she began the Taste of Point Orlando event to raise money. The proceeds from those events have gone to purchase new endoscopic technology to help diagnose esophageal cancer more quickly. Something Pam believes could have saved her father. Pam herself was one of the first patients to have an endoscopy with the new device as she is an acid reflux sufferer. To learn more visit ...

      Topcon DRI OCT-1, Deep Range Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography

      Topcon DRI OCT-1, Deep Range Imaging Optical Coherence Tomographywww.topcon-medical.eu DRI OCT-1, a Swept Source OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) for posterior imaging, is utilizing a wavelength of 1050nm. It has a fast scanning speed of 100000 A-scans/sec. Utilizing this 1050nm wavelength, DRI OCT-1 can penetrate deeper compared to the current conventional OCT's with wavelength in the 850 nm range. Visualizing ocular tissues such as choroid or even sclera can be done within a very short time. 1050nm -- Deep Range Imaging DRI OCT-1 displays detail structures of not only retina but choroid and even sclera. With the capability ...
