      Speckle variance optical coherence tomography using an SS-OCT system and an extended k-sampling clock
      is vacant or filled with material having a refractive index different from the tissue, the observed structure is deformed significantly. This deformation artifact can be minimized by filling the cavity with liquid having a refractive index nearly equal to the tissue. Furthermore, by using dynamical OCT method, cavity image intensity can be significantly enhanced compared with the tissue. This image contrast improvement may allow imaging of cavity structures inside deep ...

    4. Accommodative changes in human eye observed by Kitasato anterior segment optical coherence tomography

      Accommodative changes in human eye observed by Kitasato anterior segment optical coherence tomography
      Purpose To study accommodative changes in the human lens using swept-source optical coherence tomography (Kitasato anterior segment OCT/KAs-OCT), which can image the whole anterior segment of the eye. Methods Thirty-five healthy subjects (mean age 41 years, range 1379 years) were recruited. Using KAs-OCT, we measured the curvature of the anterior (ASC) and posterior surfaces (PSC), the thickness (LT) of the lens and the anterior chamber depth (ACD) in response ...

    5. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography of multi-MHz A-scan rates at 1310 nm range and real-time 4D-display up to 41 volumes/second

      Spectral domain optical coherence tomography of multi-MHz A-scan rates at 1310 nm range and real-time 4D-display up to 41 volumes/second
      An ultrafast frequency domain optical coherence tomography system was developed at A-scan rates between 2.5 and 10 MHz, a B-scan rate of 4 or 8 kHz, and volume-rates between 12 and 41 volumes/second. In the case of the worst duty ratio of 10%, the averaged A-scan rate was 1 MHz. Two optical demultiplexers at a center wavelength of 1310 nm were used for linear- k spectral dispersion and ...

    6. Image diversity, shape modification with accommodation, dynamical change with accommodation, and age dependence of the ciliary body imaged by optical coherence tomography

      Image diversity, shape modification with accommodation, dynamical change with accommodation, and age dependence of the ciliary body imaged by optical coherence tomography
      For investigation of accommodation and presbyopia, the ciliary body and its dynamics were imaged with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) method. We used two OCT systems; a discretely-swept frequency-comb OCT with a center wavelength at 1.6Ɓ and ultra-fast spectral domain OCT with a center wavelength at 1.3μm. Measurements of dynamical modification of the ciliary body were carried out with ranging in age from 22 to 79. The OCT images ...

    7. Developing the World’s First Real-Time 3D OCT Medical Imaging System With LabVIEW and NI FlexRIO

      Developing the World’s First Real-Time 3D OCT Medical Imaging System With LabVIEW and NI FlexRIO
      OCT is a noninvasive imaging technique that provides subsurface, cross-sectional images of materials. Interest in OCT technology continues to grow because it provides much greater resolution than other imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET). Additionally, the method does not require much preparation and is extremely safe for the patient because it uses low laser outputs and does not require ionizing radiation. OCT uses ...

    8. Wavelength-tunable light generator and optical coherence tomography device

      The present invention provides an OCT technique that permits tomographic observation of a biological body parts that is difficult to restrain and also provides a tomographic observation technique for the observation of a constrainable part that does not require constraint and remove the burden from biological body. A wavelength-tunable light generator (wavelength-tunable light source) is employed as the light source of the optical coherence tomography device. The wavelength-tunable light generator ...

      A large depth range is needed if optical coherence tomography (OCT) is to be used to observe multiple teeth simultaneously. A discretely swept optical frequency domain imaging system with a 24-mm depth range was made by using a superstructure-grating distributed Bragg reflector (SSG-DBR) laser as th ... [Proc.

    10. 140-nm Quasi-Continuous Fast Sweep Using SSG-DBR Lasers

      We demonstrate a single-mode and fast wavelength swept light source by employing superstructure-grating distributed Bragg reflector (SSG-DBR) lasers for use in optical frequency-domain reflectometry optical coherence tomography. A noteworthy feature is that our laser employs a thermal drift compensator (TDC). By utilizing the TDC, we achieved a fast wavelength sweep without any unexpected mode hopping. We newly designed and fabricated SSG-DBR lasers covering the following four wavelength bands: 1496-1529, 1529-1564 ...

      An optical measuring instrument which enables measurement of necessary data in a short period of time and uses a light with a short coherence length. In this instrument, such a light emitted from a light source is divided into a measurement light and a plurality of reference lights.
