    2. Three Dimensional OCT in the Engineering of Tissue Constructs: A Potentially Powerful Tool for Assessing Optimal Scaffold Structure

      Three Dimensional OCT in the Engineering of Tissue Constructs: A Potentially Powerful Tool for Assessing Optimal Scaffold Structure
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides detailed, real-time information on the structure and composition of constructs used in tissue engineering. The focus of this work is the OCT three-dimensional assessment of scaffolding architecture and distribution of cells on it. PLGA scaffolds were imaged in two and three-dimensions, both seeded and unseeded with cells. Then two types of scaffolds were reconstructed in three dimensions. Both scaffolding types were examined at three different seeding densities. The importance of three-dimensional assessments was evident, particularly with respect to porosity and identification of asymmetrical cell distribution.

    3. Fiber optic needle probes for optical coherence tomography imaging

      Fiber optic needle probes for optical coherence tomography imaging

      A fiber optic needle probe for measuring or imaging the internal structure of a specimen includes a needle defining a bore, an optical fiber substantially positioned within the bore, and a beam director in optical communication with the optical fiber. At least a portion of the wall of the needle is capable of transmitting light. The beam director directs light from the optical fiber to an internal structure being imaged and receives light from the structure through a transparent portion of the wall. An actuating device causes motion of any, or all of, the needle, optical fiber, and beam director ...

    4. Fiber optic imaging endoscope interferometer with at least one faraday rotator

      Fiber optic imaging endoscope interferometer with at least one faraday rotator
      An imaging system for performing optical coherence tomography includes an optical radiation source; a reference optical reflector; a first optical path leading to the reference optical reflector; and a second optical path coupled to an endoscopic unit. The endoscopic unit preferably includes an elongated housing defining a bore; a rotatable single mode optical fiber having a proximal end and a distal end positioned within and extending the length of the bore of the elongated housing; and an optical system coupled to the distal end of the rotatable single mode optical fiber, positioned to transmit the optical radiation from the single ...

    5. Methods and apparatus for forward-directed optical scanning instruments

      Methods and apparatus for forward-directed optical scanning instruments
      An imaging system for performing forward scanning imaging for application to therapeutic and diagnostic devises used in medical procedures. The imaging system includes forward directed optical coherence tomography (OCT), and non-retroreflected forward scanning OCT. Also interferometric imaging and ranging techniques and fluorescent, Raman, two-photon, and diffuse wave imaging can be used. The forward scanning mechanisms include a cam attached to a motor, pneumatic devices, a pivoting device, piezoelectric transducers, electrostatic driven slides for substantially transverse scanning; counter-rotating prisms, and offset lenses are used for arbitrary scanning. The imaging system of the invention is applied to hand held probes including probes ...
