    2. Live mechanistic assessment of localized cardiac pumping in mammalian tubular embryonic heart

      Live mechanistic assessment of localized cardiac pumping in mammalian tubular embryonic heart
      Significance: Understanding how the valveless embryonic heart pumps blood is essential to elucidate biomechanical cues regulating cardiogenesis, which is important for the advancement of congenital heart defects research. However, methods capable of embryonic cardiac pumping analysis remain limited, and assessing this highly dynamic process in mammalian embryos is challenging. New approaches are critically needed to address this hurdle. Aim: We report an imaging-based approach for functional assessment of localized pumping ...

    3. Dynamic Imaging of Mouse Embryos and Cardiac Development in Static Culture

      Dynamic Imaging of Mouse Embryos and Cardiac Development in Static Culture
      Dynamic imaging is a powerful approach to assess the function of a developing organ system. The heart is a dynamic organ that undergoes quick morphological and mechanical changes through early embryonic development. Defining the embyonic mouse heart's normal function is important for our own understanding of human heart development and will inform us on treatments and prevention of congenital heart defects (CHD). Traditional methods such as ultrasound or fluorescence-based ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography angiography to evaluate murine fetal brain vasculature changes caused by prenatal exposure to nicotine

      Optical coherence tomography angiography to evaluate murine fetal brain vasculature changes caused by prenatal exposure to nicotine
      Maternal smoking causes several defects ranging from intrauterine growth restriction to sudden infant death syndrome and spontaneous abortion. While several studies have documented the effects of prenatal nicotine exposure in development and behavior, acute vasculature changes in the fetal brain due to prenatal nicotine exposure have not been evaluated yet. This study uses correlation mapping optical coherence angiography to evaluate changes in fetal brain vasculature flow caused by maternal exposure ...

    7. Multimodal quantitative optical elastography of the crystalline lens with optical coherence elastography and Brillouin microscopy

      Multimodal quantitative optical elastography of the crystalline lens with optical coherence elastography and Brillouin microscopy
      Assessing the biomechanical properties of the crystalline lens can provide crucial information for diagnosing disease and guiding precision therapeutic interventions. Existing noninvasive methods have been limited to global measurements. Here, we demonstrate the quantitative assessment of the elasticity of crystalline lens with a multimodal optical elastography technique, which combines dynamic wave-based optical coherence elastography (OCE) and Brillouin microscopy to overcome the drawbacks of individual modalities. OCE can provide direct measurements ...

      Looking into the Future: Optical Coherence Tomography for the Assessment of Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy
      ntroduction Current guidelines recommend coronary angiography with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) as a screening and surveillance tool for the assessment of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV). The role of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has not been thoroughly evaluated for patients with CAV.

  2. About Baylor College of Medicine

    Baylor College of Medicine

    Baylor College of Medicine, located in Houston, Texas, USA, is one of the world's leading centers for biomedical research and clinical care. Situated within the Texas Medical Center, a 1,000-acre complex that is home to 46 member institutions and is the largest medical center in the world, Baylor College of Medicine has affiliations with eight teaching hospitals, including the world-renowned Texas Children's Hospital, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Menninger Clinic and Texas Heart Institute. It has been consistently rated the top medical school in Texas and among the top 10 medical schools in the United States. Its Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is also highly rated. BCM, despite being solely focused on medical and graduate education, has become one of 63 American colleges with an endowment greater than $1 billion.
