    2. Optimizing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Calcified Lesions Insights From Optical Coherence Tomography of Atherectomy

      Optimizing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Calcified Lesions Insights From Optical Coherence Tomography of Atherectomy
      Optimal coronary stent implantation is among the few successful strategies in preventing stent failures, notably in-stent restenosis and stent thrombosis. 1 Understanding the intravascular milieu is a prerequisite for optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Calcified lesions limit stent expansion, the most robust predictor of target lesion revascularization, and are thus associated with worst outcomes. 2 Coronary angiography is a poor discriminator of calcium distribution and thickness. Reliance on angiography ...

    3. Measurement of shear-induced diffusion of red blood cells using dynamic light scattering-optical coherence tomography

      Measurement of shear-induced diffusion of red blood cells using dynamic light scattering-optical coherence tomography
      Dynamic Light Scattering-Optical Coherence Tomography (DLS-OCT) takes the advantages of using DLS to measure particle flow and diffusion within an OCT resolution-constrained 3D volume, enabling the simultaneous measurements of absolute RBC velocity and diffusion coefficient with high spatial resolution. In this work, we applied DLS-OCT to measure both RBC velocity and the shear-induced diffusion coefficient within penetrating venules of the somatosensory cortex of anesthetized mice. Blood flow laminar profile measurements ...

    4. Optical coherence tomography imaging of capillary reperfusion after ischemic stroke

      Optical coherence tomography imaging of capillary reperfusion after ischemic stroke
      Although progress has been made for recanalization therapies after ischemic stroke, post-treatment imaging studies show that tissue reperfusion cannot be attained despite satisfactory recanalization in a significant percentage of patients. Hence, investigation of microcirculatory changes in both surface and deep cortical levels after ischemia reperfusion is important for understanding the post-stroke blood flow dynamics. In this study, we applied optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of cerebral blood flow for the ...

    5. Methods of Melanoma Detection

      Methods of Melanoma Detection
      Detection and removal of melanoma, before it has metastasized, dramatically improves prognosis and survival. The purpose of this chapter is to (1) summarize current methods of melanoma detection and (2) review state-of-the-art detection methods and technologies that have the potential to reduce melanoma mortality. Current strategies for the detection of melanoma range from population-based educational campaigns and screening to the use of algorithm-driven imaging technologies and performance of assays that ...

    6. Characterization of Knuckle (Garrod) Pads Using Optical Coherence Tomography In Vivo

      Characterization of Knuckle (Garrod) Pads Using Optical Coherence Tomography In Vivo
      To the Editor: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technique that uses a low-power infrared laser light for cutaneous architecture visualization up to 2 mm in depth. Both malignant and nonmalignant lesions on OCT imaging have been correlated with histopathologic analysis. 1 We describe the diagnostic features of knuckle pads on OCT. A 43-year-old-man presented with warts on the right thumb and bilateral feet of several months duration ...
