    2. Mirror image suppression method

      Mirror image suppression method
      A mirror image suppression method adapted to an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system is provided. The mirror image suppression method includes the following steps: obtaining a tomography image of an object to be tested by using the OCT system; calculating one real image signal obtained from an n.sup.th specific-mode scan for a specific pixel of the tomography image based on image signals obtained from an (n-1).sup.th ...

    3. Differentiation of oral precancerous stages with optical coherence tomography based on the evaluation of optical scattering properties of oral mucosae

      Differentiation of oral precancerous stages with optical coherence tomography based on the evaluation of optical scattering properties of oral mucosae
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been demonstrated to be a powerful tool for noninvasive, real-time oral cancer diagnosis. However, in previous reports, OCT has still been found to be difficult to use in the diagnosis of oral precancerous stages, including mild dysplasia and moderate dysplasia. In clinical applications, early diagnosis and treatment of oral cancer can greatly improve the survival rate. Therefore, in this study, we propose a new approach ...

    4. Two-reference swept-source optical coherence tomography of high operation flexibility

      Two-reference swept-source optical coherence tomography of high operation flexibility
      The significantly less stringent operation of a two-reference swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) system for suppressing the mirror image is demonstrated based on the spatially localized image processing method. With this method, the phase difference between the two reference signals is not limited to 90 degrees. Based on the current experimental operation, the mirror image can be effectively suppressed as long as the phase difference is larger than 20 degrees ...

    5. Noninvasive imaging of heart chamber in Drosophila with dual-beam optical coherence tomography

      Noninvasive imaging of heart chamber in Drosophila with dual-beam optical coherence tomography
      The heart chamber of an adult Drosophila is approximately 2 mm long and 0.5 mm wide, and the interwall separation of different heart portions during systole and diastole range from tens of micrometers to hundreds of micrometers. Furthermore, the heart chamber has a curved structure, which results in the larger differences in depth between the different heart portions. However, applying the wavelength calibration process before Fourier transform in an ...

    6. Diagnosis of oral precancer with optical coherence tomography

      Diagnosis of oral precancer with optical coherence tomography
      A procedure for computer analyzing an optical coherence tomography (OCT) image of normal and precancerous oral mucosae is demonstrated to reasonably plot the boundary between epithelium (EP) and lamina propria (LP) layers, determine the EP thickness, and estimate the range of dysplastic cell distribution based on standard deviation (SD) mapping. In this study, 54 normal oral mucosa, 39 oral mild dysplasia, and 44 oral moderate dysplasia OCT images are processed ...

    7. Method for analyzing mucosa samples with optical coherence tomography

      Method for analyzing mucosa samples with optical coherence tomography
      A method for analyzing mucosa structure with optical coherence tomography (OCT) is provided, and includes: (a) scanning a mucosa sample with optical coherence tomography; (b) choosing a lateral range from a two- or three-dimensional OCT image and analyzing all the A-scan intensity profiles in the lateral range; (c) calculating three indicators in each A-scan intensity profile, including the standard deviation for a certain depth range below the sample surface, the ...

    8. Microvascular Imaging Using Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography with Single-Channel Acquisition

      Microvascular Imaging Using Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography with Single-Channel Acquisition
      This study proposes a new approach to improve the phase stability for swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) with single-channel acquisition. This approach can improve the phase instability due to the A-scan trigger jitter from the swept source, or the asynchronization between the A-scan trigger and high-speed digitizer, which enables the visualization of vascular structures by SS-OCT. Aside from reducing the phase noise of the OCT system, only one channel is ...

    9. Observations of cardiac beating behaviors of wild-type and mutant Drosophilae with optical coherence tomography

      Observations of cardiac beating behaviors of wild-type and mutant Drosophilae with optical coherence tomography
      Time-resolved optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanning images of wild-type and mutant fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster), illustrating the heartbeat patterns for evaluating their cardiac functions, are demonstrated. Based on the heartbeat patterns, the beat rate and the relative phase between the first two heart segments can be evaluated. The OCT scanning results of mutant flies with impaired proteasome function in cardiac muscles show irregular heartbeat patterns and systematically decreased average beat ...
