    2. Special Section Guest Editorial: Advances in Retinal Imaging

      Special Section Guest Editorial: Advances in Retinal Imaging
      The guest editorial provides an introduction to the Special Section on Advanced Retinal Imaging: Instrumentation, Methods, and Applications. The retina is a peripheral part of the central nerve system (CNS) and shares many similarities with the cerebral cortex. They both have layered anatomy, the same types of functional elements and neurotransmitters, and similar vascular organization and blood-tissue barriers. With far fewer neuronal cell types and simpler anatomical structures, the retina ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography using physical domain data compression to achieve MHz A-scan rates

      Optical coherence tomography using physical domain data compression to achieve MHz A-scan rates
      The three-dimensional volumetric imaging capability of optical coherence tomography (OCT) leads to the generation of large amounts of data, which necessitates high speed acquisition followed by high dimensional image processing and visualization. This signal acquisition and processing pipeline demands high A-scan rates on the front end, which has driven researchers to push A-scan acquisition rates into the MHz regime. To this end, the optical time-stretch approach uses a mode locked ...

    4. Deep spectral learning for label-free optical imaging oximetry with uncertainty quantification

      Deep spectral learning for label-free optical imaging oximetry with uncertainty quantification
      Measurement of blood oxygen saturation ( s O 2 ) by optical imaging oximetry provides invaluable insight into local tissue functions and metabolism. Despite different embodiments and modalities, all label-free optical-imaging oximetry techniques utilize the same principle of s O 2 -dependent spectral contrast from haemoglobin. Traditional approaches for quantifying s O 2 often rely on analytical models that are fitted by the spectral measurements. These approaches in practice suffer from uncertainties ...

    5. MATLAB code and data processing guide for Dynamic Light Scattering-Optical Coherence Tomography

      MATLAB code and data processing guide for Dynamic Light Scattering-Optical Coherence Tomography
      This guide is for post data processing of DLSOCT, which outputs axial velocity (Vz), transverse velocity (Vx), total velocity(V), the ratio of static component (Ms), the ratio of dynamic component (Mf), and fitting accuracy (R). The speed upper limit is determined by OCT system Aline rate and 3Dvoxel size.

    6. Longitudinal detection of retinal alterations by visible and near-infrared optical coherence tomography in a dexamethasone-induced ocular hypertension mouse model

      Longitudinal detection of retinal alterations by visible and near-infrared optical coherence tomography in a dexamethasone-induced ocular hypertension mouse model
      The retina, as part of the central nervous system, has distinct anatomical and structural properties for its visual function. Light scattering spectroscopy, while widely used for tissue structural characterization and disease diagnosis, has been relatively unexplored in the living retina. Recently, we have developed a fiber-based visible and near-infrared optical coherence tomography system (vnOCT) for in vivo retinal imaging, to uniquely measure a spectroscopic marker (VN ratio) sensitive to nanoscale ...

    7. Normalized field autocorrelation function-based optical coherence tomography three-dimensional angiography

      Normalized field autocorrelation function-based optical coherence tomography three-dimensional angiography
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has been widely used for ien face/i visualization of the microvasculature, but is challenged for real three-dimensional (3-D) topologic imaging due to the tail artifacts that appear below large vessels. Further, OCTA is generally incapable of differentiating descending arterioles from ascending venules. We introduce a normalized field autocorrelation function-based OCTA (ig/isub1/sub-OCTA), which minimizes the tail artifacts and is capable of distinguishing penetrating ...

    8. Quantitative quality-control metrics for in vivo oximetry in small vessels by visible light optical coherence tomography angiography

      Quantitative quality-control metrics for in vivo oximetry in small vessels by visible light optical coherence tomography angiography
      Biological functions rely on local microvasculature to deliver oxygen and nutrients and carry away metabolic waste. Alterations to local oxygenation levels are manifested in diseases including cancer, diabetes mellitus, etc. The ability to quantify oxygen saturation (sO 2 ) within microvasculature in vivo to assess local tissue oxygenation and metabolic function is highly sought after. Visible light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) angiography has shown promise in reaching this goal. However, achieving ...

    10. Colocalization of neurons in optical coherence microscopy and Nissl-stained histology in Brodmann’s area 32 and area 21

      Colocalization of neurons in optical coherence microscopy and Nissl-stained histology in Brodmann’s area 32 and area 21
      Optical coherence tomography is an optical technique that uses backscattered light to highlight intrinsic structure, and when applied to brain tissue, it can resolve cortical layers and fiber bundles. Optical coherence microscopy (OCM) is higher resolution (i.e., 1.25 m) and is capable of detecting neurons. In a previous report, we compared the correspondence of OCM acquired imaging of neurons with traditional Nissl stained histology in entorhinal cortex layer ...
