    1. Imaging intracellular motion with dynamic micro-optical coherence tomography

      Imaging intracellular motion with dynamic micro-optical coherence tomography
      This paper describes a new technology that uses 1-m-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) to obtain cross-sectional images of intracellular dynamics with dramatically enhanced image contrast. This so-called dynamic OCT (d-OCT) is accomplished by acquiring a time series of OCT images and conducting power frequency analysis of the temporal fluctuations that arise from intracellular motion on a pixel-per-pixel basis. Here, we demonstrate d-OCT imaging of freshly excised human esophageal and cervical ...

    2. Passive endoscopic polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography with completely fiber based optical components

      Passive endoscopic polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography with completely fiber based optical components
      Polarization Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography (PSOCT) is a functional extension of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) that is sensitive to well-structured, birefringent tissue such as scars, smooth muscle and cartilage. In this work, we present a novel completely fiber based swept source PSOCT system using a fiber-optic rotary pullback catheter. This PSOCT implementation uses only passive optical components and requires no calibration while adding minimal additional cost to a standard structural ...

    3. Automated segmentation of porcine airway wall layers using optical coherence tomography: comparison with manual segmentation and histology

      Automated segmentation of porcine airway wall layers using optical coherence tomography: comparison with manual segmentation and histology
      The objective was to develop an automated optical coherence tomography (OCT) segmentation method. We evaluated three ex-vivo porcine airway specimens; six non-sequential OCT images were selected from each airway specimen. Histology was also performed for each airway and histology images were co-registered to OCT images for comparison. Manual segmentation of the airway luminal area, mucosa area, submucosa area and the outer airway wall area were performed for histology and OCT ...

    4. Quantitative Assessment of the Airway Wall Using Computed Tomography and Optical Coherence Tomography

      Ever since the site and nature of airflow obstruction in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was described by Hogg, Thurlbeck, and Macklem, investigators have been looking for methods to noninvasively measure the airway wall dimensions. Recent advances in computed tomography technology and new computer algorithms have made it possible to visualize and measure the airway wall and lumen without the need for tissue. However, while there is great hope for computed ...
