    2. Advances in Optical Coherence Tomography and Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy in Pulmonary Diseases

      Advances in Optical Coherence Tomography and Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy in Pulmonary Diseases
      Diagnosing and monitoring pulmonary diseases is highly dependent on imaging, physiological function tests and tissue sampling. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) are novel imaging techniques with near-microscopic resolution that can be easily and safely combined with conventional bronchoscopy. Disease-related pulmonary anatomical compartments can be visualized, real time, using these techniques. In obstructive lung diseases, airway wall layers and related structural remodelling can be identified and quantified ...

    3. Computed Tomography–Mediated Registration of Trapeziometacarpal Articular Cartilage Using Intraarticular Optical Coherence Tomography and Cryomicrotome Imaging: A Cadaver Study

      Computed Tomography–Mediated Registration of Trapeziometacarpal Articular Cartilage Using Intraarticular Optical Coherence Tomography and Cryomicrotome Imaging: A Cadaver Study
      Objective Accurate, high-resolution imaging of articular cartilage thickness is an important clinical challenge in patients with osteoarthritis, especially in small joints. In this study, computed tomography (CT) mediated catheter-based optical coherence tomography (OCT) was utilized to create a digital reconstruction of the articular surface of the trapeziometacarpal (TMC) joint and to assess cartilage thickness in comparison to cryomicrotome data. Design Using needle-based introduction of the OCT probe, the articular surface ...

    4. Simple and robust calibration procedure for k-linearization and dispersion compensation in optical coherence tomography

      Simple and robust calibration procedure for k-linearization and dispersion compensation in optical coherence tomography
      In Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT), proper signal sampling and dispersion compensation are essential steps to achieve optimal axial resolution. These calibration steps can be performed through numerical signal processing, but require calibration information about the system that may require lengthy and complex measurement protocols. We report a highly robust calibration procedure that can simultaneously determine correction vectors for nonlinear wavenumber sampling and dispersion compensation. The proposed method requires only ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography to detect acute esophageal radiation-induced damage in mice: a validation study

      Optical coherence tomography to detect acute esophageal radiation-induced damage in mice: a validation study
      Radiation therapy for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer is hampered by acute radiation-induced toxicity in the esophagus. This study aims to validate that optical coherence tomography (OCT), a minimally invasive imaging technique with high resolution (~10 m), is able to visualize and monitor acute radiation-induced esophageal damage (ARIED) in mice. We compare our findings with histopathology as the gold standard. Irradiated mice receive a single dose of 40 Gy at ...

    7. Micro-indentation and optical coherence tomography for the mechanical characterization of embryos: Experimental setup and measurements on fixed chicken embryos.

      Micro-indentation and optical coherence tomography for the mechanical characterization of embryos: Experimental setup and measurements on fixed chicken embryos.
      The investigation of the mechanical properties of embryos is expected to provide valuable information on the phenomenology of morphogenesis. It is thus believed that, by mapping the viscoelastic features of an embryo at different stages of growth, it may be possible to shed light on the role of mechanics in embryonic development. To contribute to this field, we present a new instrument that can determine spatiotemporal distributions of mechanical properties ...

    8. From sample structure to optical properties and back : A theoretical framework for quantitative OCT and its clinical application (Thesis)

      From sample structure to optical properties and back : A theoretical framework for quantitative OCT and its clinical application (Thesis)
      The aim of this thesis is to provide a methodology to extract quantitative parameters from optical coherence tomography (OCT) images and to relate these parameters to sample properties such as structure, organization and flow. OCT uses near-infrared light to acquire 3D images of biological tissue, with a resolution around 5-15 m and an imaging depth of approximately 2 mm. OCT can be a useful clinical tool for minimally-invasive, high-resolution imaging ...

      5‐Year clinical follow‐up of the COBRA (complex coronary bifurcation lesions: Randomized comparison of a strategy using a dedicated self‐expanding biolimus A9‐eluting stent vs. a culotte strategy using everolimus‐eluting stents) study
      Objectives We evaluated healing responses with optical coherence tomography, and long‐term clinical outcomes after treatment with a dedicated stent versus a conventional culotte technique. Background Dedicated bifurcation stents have been proposed as an alternative treatment for coronary bifurcation lesions. The long‐term performance of dedicated stents versus conventional dual‐stent techniques for the treatment of complex coronary bifurcation lesions is unknown.

    12. One‐to‐one registration of en‐face optical coherence tomography attenuation coefficients with histology of a prostatectomy specimen

      One‐to‐one registration of en‐face optical coherence tomography attenuation coefficients with histology of a prostatectomy specimen
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT), enables high‐resolution 3D imaging of the morphology of light scattering tissues. From the OCT signal, parameters can be extracted and related to tissue structures. One of the quantitative parameters is the attenuation coefficient; the rate at which the intensity of detected light decays in depth. To couple the quantitative parameters with the histology one‐to‐one registration is needed. The primary aim of this study ...
