    3. State of the Industry report on Optical Coherence Tomography

      State of the Industry report on Optical Coherence Tomography
      The first commercial optical coherence tomography (OCT) imagers were introduced to ophthalmology by Advanced Ophthalmic Devices (now owned by Zeiss Meditec) in 1992. Since then, the market for OCT systems has grown at an impressive compounded annual rate of about 45%. This segment of the biophotonics marketplace has flourished because OCT enables sub-surface imaging of translucent or opaque materials, such as human tissue, in real time at micron resolution and ...

    4. Feature Of The Week 8/4/13: MGH OCT Registry Reports on In Vivo OCT Studies of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule In Acute Coronary Syndrome

      Feature Of The Week 8/4/13: MGH OCT Registry Reports on In Vivo OCT Studies of Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodule In Acute Coronary Syndrome
      Pathology studies reported that three most common causes of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or sudden cardiac death are plaque rupture, plaque erosion and calcified nodules. The morphological and clinical characteristics of the underlying pathology of ACS, especially plaque erosion and calcified nodule, have never been well studied in vivo. Using optical coherence tomography, we found that plaque erosions are the substrate for ACS in 31% of patients and calcified nodules ...

    7. Comparison of Tissue Architectural Changes between Radiofrequency Ablation and Cryospray Ablation in Barrett’s Esophagus Using Endoscopic Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography

      Comparison of Tissue Architectural Changes between Radiofrequency Ablation and Cryospray Ablation in Barrett’s Esophagus Using Endoscopic Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography
      Two main nonsurgical endoscopic approaches for ablating dysplastic and early cancer lesions in the esophagus have gained popularity, namely, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryospray ablation (CSA). We report a uniquely suited endoscopic and near-microscopic imaging modality, three-dimensional (3D) optical coherence tomography (OCT), to assess and compare the esophagus immediately after RFA and CSA. The maximum depths of architectural changes were measured and compared between the two treatment groups. RFA was ...

    8. Characterization of buried glands before and after radiofrequency ablation by using 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (with videos)

      Characterization of buried glands before and after radiofrequency ablation by using 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (with videos)
      Background: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an endoscopic technique used to eradicate Barrett's esophagus (BE). However, such ablation can commonly lead to neosquamous epithelium overlying residual BE glands not visible by conventional endoscopy and may evade detection on random biopsy samples.Objective: To demonstrate the capability of endoscopic 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) for the identification and characterization of buried glands before and after RFA therapy.Design: Cross-sectional study.Setting ...
