    1. First interobserver agreement of optical coherence tomography in the bile duct: A multicenter collaborative study

      First interobserver agreement of optical coherence tomography in the bile duct: A multicenter collaborative study
      Background and study aims Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new technology available for evaluation of indeterminate biliary strictures. It allows under-the-surface visualization and preliminary studies have confirmed standardized characteristics associated with malignancy. The aim of this study is to evaluate the first interobserver agreement in identifying previously agreed upon OCT criteria and diagnosing of malignant versus benign disease. Patients and methods Fourteen endoscopists were asked to review an atlas ...

    2. Polarization mode dispersion correction in endoscopic polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography with incoherent polarization input states

      Polarization mode dispersion correction in endoscopic polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography with incoherent polarization input states
      The incorporation of polarization sensitivity into optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) imaging can greatly enhance utility by allowing differentiation via intrinsic contrast of many types of tissue. In fiber-based OCT systems such as those employing endoscopic imaging probes, however, polarization mode dispersion (PMD) can significantly impact the ability to obtain accurate polarization data unless valuable axial resolution is sacrificed. In this work we present a new technique for compensating for PMD ...

    3. Inter-device reliability of swept source and spectral domain optical coherence tomography and retinal layer differences in schizophrenia

      Inter-device reliability of swept source and spectral domain optical coherence tomography and retinal layer differences in schizophrenia
      Introduction Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is used to study retinal structure in schizophrenia. Changes in retinal structure, especially the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) has been correlated with psychotic disorders. Measurement variability is a concern since there are various generations of OCT devices. We investigated the inter- and intra-device agreement of macular thickness between spectral domain (SDOCT) and swept sourceOCT (SSOCT), and compared macula and peripapillary group differences in schizophrenia ...

    4. Intravascular Imaging for Venous Interventions

      Intravascular Imaging for Venous Interventions
      Purpose of Review This review surveys the clinical landscape of intravascular imaging for endovenous interventions. Recent Findings Endovascular imaging has become increasingly important for diagnosing venous pathology and guiding venous interventions. In particular, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) provides 3D high-resolution cross-sectional imaging of vessel and surrounding tissues, often in anatomic locations inaccessible to surface ultrasound, namely the superior vena cava, inferior vena cava, and caval-iliac veins. Summary Current well-established indications for ...

    7. SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FINDINGS AND VISUAL OUTCOME AFTER TREATMENT FOR VITREOMACULAR TRACTION

      SPECTRAL DOMAIN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FINDINGS AND VISUAL OUTCOME AFTER TREATMENT FOR VITREOMACULAR TRACTION
      Purpose: To evaluate the capacity of spectral domain optical coherence tomography macular findings to predict best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) outcomes after treatment for symptomatic vitreomacular traction. Methods: This consecutive, retrospective study included 24 patients (29 eyes) who experienced vitreomacular traction release with pneumatic vitreolysis (n = 9), intravitreal ocriplasmin (n = 6), or pars plana vitrectomy (n = 14). Preoperative and postoperative spectral domain optical coherence tomography images were used to determine the ...

    8. Is quantitative coronary angiography reliable in assessing the late lumen loss of the everolimus eluting bioresorbable polylactide scaffold in comparison with the cobalt chromium metallic stent?

      Is quantitative coronary angiography reliable in assessing the late lumen loss of the everolimus eluting bioresorbable polylactide scaffold in comparison with the cobalt chromium metallic stent?
      Aims: Immediately after stent/scaffold implantation, quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) with respect to optical coherence tomography (OCT) more severely underestimates the lumen diameter (LD) in Absorb than in XIENCE. This OCT-QCA discrepancy has not been evaluated at long-term follow-up. The present study aimed to assess the accuracy of QCA with reference to OCT in Absorb as compared to XIENCE.

    10. Collar Sign in Incompletely Occluded Aneurysms after Pipeline Embolization: Evaluation with Angiography and Optical Coherence Tomography

      Collar Sign in Incompletely Occluded Aneurysms after Pipeline Embolization: Evaluation with Angiography and Optical Coherence Tomography
      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Flow diversion with the Pipeline Embolization Device has emerged as an attractive treatment for cerebral aneurysms. Processes involved in aneurysm occlusion include changes in intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics and endothelialization of the device. Here, we call attention to a radiographic sign not previously reported that is detected in incompletely occluded aneurysms after treatment with the Pipeline Embolization Device at angiographic follow-up and referred to as the collar sign. MATERIALS ...

      Targeted Near-Infrared Fluorescence Imaging of Atherosclerosis
      Objectives This study sought to determine whether indocyanine green (ICG)enhanced near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging can illuminate high-risk histologic plaque features of human carotid atherosclerosis, and in coronary atheroma of living swine, using intravascular NIRF-optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging. Background New translatable imaging approaches are needed to identify high-risk biological signatures of atheroma. ICG is a U.S. Food and Drug Administrationapproved NIRF imaging agent that experimentally targets plaque macrophages ...

      The new kid on the block for advanced imaging in Barrett’s esophagus: a review of volumetric laser endomicroscopy
      Advanced imaging techniques used in the management of Barretts esophagus include electronic imaging enhancement (e.g. narrow band imaging, flexible spectral imaging color enhancement, and i-Scan), chromoendoscopy, and confocal laser endomicroscopy. Electronic imaging enhancement is used frequently in daily practice, but use of the other advanced technologies is not routine. High-definition white light endoscopy and random four quadrant biopsy remain the standard of care for evaluation of Barretts esophagus; this ...

      Cellular resolution ex vivo imaging of gastrointestinal tissues with optical coherence microscopy
      Optical coherence microscopy (OCM) combines confocal microscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to improve imaging depth and contrast, enabling cellular imaging in human tissues. We aim to investigate OCM for ex vivo imaging of upper and lower gastrointestinal tract tissues, to establish correlations between OCM imaging and histology, and to provide a baseline for future endoscopic studies. Co-registered OCM and OCT imaging were performed on fresh surgical specimens and endoscopic ...

      Photothermal optical coherence tomography in ex vivo human breast tissues using gold nanoshells
      We demonstrate photothermal optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in highly scattering human breast tissue ex vivo. A 120 kHz axial scan rate, swept-source phase-sensitive OCT system at 1300 nm was used to detect phase changes induced by 830 nm photothermal excitation of gold nanoshells. Localized phase modulation was observed 300-600 m deep in scattering tissue using an excitation power of only 22 mW at modulation frequencies up to 20 kHz ...
