    3. Dual-beam optical coherence tomography system for quantification of flow velocity in capillary phantoms

      Dual-beam optical coherence tomography system for quantification of flow velocity in capillary phantoms
      The quantification of (blood) flow velocity within the vasculature has potent diagnostic and prognostic potential. Assessment of flow irregularities in the form of increased permeability (micro haemorrhaging), the presence of avascular areas, or conversely the presence of vessels with enlarged or increased tortuosity in the acral regions of the body may provide a means of non-invasive in vivo assessment. If assessment of dermal flow dynamics were performed in a routine ...

    4. Design and development of a galvanometer inspired dual beam optical coherence tomography system for flow velocity quantification of the microvasculature

      Design and development of a galvanometer inspired dual beam optical coherence tomography system for flow velocity quantification of the microvasculature
      This paper reports initial experimentation of a dual beam flow velocity estimation setup based on optical coherence tomography (OCT) for biomedical applications. The proposed work incorporates a low cost switching mechanism (rotating galvanometer mirror) for optical signal discrimination between adjacent fiber channels enabling quasisimultaneous multiple specimen scanning. A cascaded interferometric design is used with two sample output arms orientated in parallel to eachother. A cross-correlation computation between these two parallel ...

    5. In vivo imaging of the microcirculation of the volar forearm using correlation mapping optical coherence tomography (cmOCT)

      In vivo imaging of the microcirculation of the volar forearm using correlation mapping optical coherence tomography (cmOCT)
      Correlation mapping optical coherence tomography (cmOCT) is a recently proposed technique that extends the capabilities of OCT to enable mapping of vasculature networks. The technique is achieved as a processing step on OCT intensity images that does not require any modification to existing OCT hardware. In this paper we apply the cmOCT processing technique to in vivo human imaging of the volar forearm. We illustrate that cmOCT can produce maps ...

    6. In-vivo assessment of cleavage line orientation in human skin using optical coherence tomography

      In-vivo assessment of cleavage line orientation in human skin using optical coherence tomography
      Collagen and elastin fibers are generally arranged in parallel bundles within the dermis. These bundles are oriented such that they can most efficiently resist the stress and strain that normally occurs on the skin during movement. The pattern of these fiber bundles establishes the lines of cleavage of the skin. Knowledge of the orientation of these is of key importance for surgical procedures. When incisions are cut parallel to the ...

    7. Correlation mapping method for generating microcirculation morphology from optical coherence tomography (OCT) intensity images

      Correlation mapping method for generating microcirculation morphology from optical coherence tomography (OCT) intensity images
      Standard optical coherence tomography (OCT) in combination with software tools can be harnessed to generate vascular maps in vivo. In this study we have successfully combined a software algorithm based on correlation statistic to reveal microcirculation morphology on OCT intensity images of a mouse brain in vivo captured trans-cranially and through a cranial window. We were able to estimate vessel geometry at bifurcation as well as along vessel segments down-to ...

    8. In-vivo dynamic characterization of microneedle skin penetration using optical coherence tomography

      In-vivo dynamic characterization of microneedle skin penetration using optical coherence tomography
      The use of microneedles as a method of circumventing the barrier properties of the stratum corneum is receiving much attention. Although skin disruption technologies and subsequent transdermal diffusion rates are being extensively studied, no accurate data on depth and closure kinetics of microneedle-induced skin pores are available, primarily due to the cumbersome techniques currently required for skin analysis. We report on the first use of optical coherence tomography technology to ...
