    2. Methods and systems for monitoring and obtaining information of at least one portion of a sample using conformal laser therapy procedures, and providing electromagnetic radiation thereto

      In one exemplary embodiment of the present invention, method and system can be provided for obtaining information associated with at least one portion of a sample. For example, a temperature change can be caused in the portion of the sample. At least one first electro-magnetic radiation can be forwarded to a section near or in the portion of the sample. A deformation of the section can be identified at a ...

    3. Guided Esophageal Surveillance Biopsy with a Laser Marking Optical Frequency Domain Imaging System

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution cross-sectional imaging modality that has been shown to accurately detect and diagnose esophageal pathology. We have previously demonstrated comprehensive microscopic screening of the entire distal esophagus (∼6 cm) using a second generation OCT technology, termed optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI), and a balloon catheter. Esophageal screening with OFDI opens up the possibility of significantly reducing sampling error by providing the capability to target ...

    4. Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography: recent advances toward clinical utility

      With the advent of Fourier-domain techniques, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has advanced from high-resolution ‘point’ imaging over small fields-of-view to comprehensive microscopic imaging over three-dimensional volumes that are comparable to the dimensions of luminal internal organs. This advance has required the development of new lasers, improved spectrometers, minimally invasive catheters and endoscopes, and novel optical and signal processing strategies. In recent cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and gastrointestinal clinical studies, the capabilities of ...

    5. OCT-guided laser therapy shows promise

      OCT-guided laser therapy shows promise
      Advances in optical-coherence tomography may lead to a new class of endoscopic, image-guided therapies that target disease with microscopic precision. Nearly 15 years of technical innovation, robust engineering, and cross-disciplinary collaboration have advanced endoscopic optical-coherence tomography1 (OCT) from a promising laboratory tool to clinically deployed instrumentation. The latest OCT technologies are being studied at research hospitals throughout the world for applications such as heart disease and cancer.2 One of ...

    7. Apparatus for controlling at least one of at least two sections of at least one fiber

      An apparatus for controlling at least one of at least two sections of at least one fiber can be provided. The apparatus can include an arrangement which may be provided between the first and second sections of a particular continuous fiber of the fibers. A particular one of the first and second sections may be provided in a particular orientation that is perpendicular to an extension of the particular fiber ...

    8. Single-detector polarization-sensitive optical frequency domain imaging using high-speed intra A-line polarization modulation

      We demonstrate a novel high-speed polarization-sensitive optical frequency domain imaging system employing high-speed polarization modulation. Rapid and continuous polarization modulation of light prior to illumination of the sample is accomplished by shifting the frequency of one polarization ... [Opt. Lett. 33, 1330-1332 (2008)]

    9. High-speed polarization sensitive optical frequency domain imaging with frequency multiplexing

      W.Y. Oh, S.H. Yun, B.J. Vakoc, M. Shishkov, A.E. Desjardins, B.H. Park, J.F. de Boer, G.J. Tearney, B.E. Bouma. Polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) provides a cross-sectional image of birefringence in biological samples that is complementary in many applications to the standard reflectance-based image. Recent ex vivo studies have demonstrated that birefringence mapping enables the ... [Opt. Express 16, 1096-1103 (2008)]

    10. Comprehensive volumetric optical microscopy in vivo

      Comprehensive volumetric optical microscopy in vivo
      Comprehensive volumetric microscopy of epithelial, mucosal and endothelial tissues in living human patients would have a profound impact in medicine by enabling diagnostic imaging at the cellular level over large surface areas. Considering the vast area of these tissues with respect to the desired sampling interval, achieving this goal requires rapid sampling. Although noninvasive diagnostic technologies are preferred, many applications could be served by minimally invasive instruments capable of accessing ...
