    2. Speckle reduction of OCT via super resolution reconstruction and its application on retinal layer segmentation

      Speckle reduction of OCT via super resolution reconstruction and its application on retinal layer segmentation
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a rapidly developing non-invasive three dimensional imaging approach, and it has been widely used in examination and diagnosis of eye diseases. However, speckle noise are often inherited from image acquisition process, and may obscure the anatomical structure, such as the retinal layers. In this paper, we propose a novel method to reduce the speckle noise in 3D OCT scans, by introducing a new super-resolution approach ...

    5. Automatic Segmentation and Visualization of Choroid in OCT with Knowledge Infused Deep Learning

      Automatic Segmentation and Visualization of Choroid in OCT with Knowledge Infused Deep Learning
      The choroid provides oxygen and nourishment to the outer retina thus is related to the pathology of various ocular diseases. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is advantageous in visualizing and quantifying the choroid in vivo, because it does not suffer from the information contamination of the outer retina in fundus photography and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and the resolution deficiency in ocular ultrasound. We propose a biomarker infused global-to-local network, for the ...

    6. Application of machine learning method in optical molecular imaging: a review

      Application of machine learning method in optical molecular imaging: a review
      Optical molecular imaging (OMI) is an imaging technology that uses an optical signal, such as near-infrared light, to detect biological tissue in organisms. Because of its specific and sensitive imaging performance, it is applied in both preclinical research and clinical surgery. However, it requires heavy data analysis and a complex mathematical model of tomographic imaging. In recent years, machine learning (ML)-based artificial intelligence has been used in different fields ...

      BIONET: INFUSING BIOMARKER PRIOR INTO GLOBAL-TO-LOCAL NETWORK FOR CHOROID SEGMENTATION IN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY IMAGES
      Choroid is the vascular layer of the eye, which is directly related to the incidence and severity of many ocular diseases. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is capable of imaging both the cross-sectional view of retina and choroid, but the segmentation of the choroid region is challenging because of the fuzzy choroid-sclera interface (CSI). In this paper, we propose a biomarker infused global-to-local network (BioNet) for choroid segmentation, which segments the ...

      Purpose To evaluate the three-dimensional choroidal vascularity index (CVI) in the eyes with treatment-nave acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS OCT). Methods In this prospective cross-sectional study, OCT and OCT angiography covered an area of 12 12 mm centered on the fovea. Three-dimensional CVI was defined as the ratio of the choroidal vascular luminal volume to the total choroidal volume. The location of pigment epithelial ...

      Longitudinal neovascular changes on optical coherence tomography angiography in proliferative diabetic retinopathy treated with panretinal photocoagulation alone versus with intravitreal conbercept plus panretinal photocoagulation: a pilot study
      Purpose To investigate the longitudinal changes in neovascularization of the retinal elsewhere (NVE) size on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) treated by panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) alone or by single intravitreal conbercept injection plus PRP. Methods A prospective pilot study. Forty-four PDR eyes with NVE confirmed by fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) and OCTA were included. They were assigned to receive PRP alone (PRP group) or intravitreal ...

      PERCEPTUAL-ASSISTED ADVERSARIAL ADAPTATION FOR CHOROID SEGMENTATION IN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
      Accurate choroid segmentation in optical coherence tomography (OCT) image is vital because the choroid thickness is a major quantitative biomarker of many ocular diseases. Deep learning has shown its superiority in the segmentation of the choroid region but subjects to the performance degeneration caused by the domain discrepancies (e.g., noise level and distribution) among datasets obtained from the OCT devices of different manufacturers. In this paper, we present an ...

    11. Automatic fibroatheroma identification in intravascular optical coherence tomography volumes

      Automatic fibroatheroma identification in intravascular optical coherence tomography volumes
      Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease that leads to heart attacks. The identification of vulnerable plaques, especially the thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA), is crucial to the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT), an emerging imaging modality, has been proven to be useful for the identification of vulnerable plaques. In this work, we propose an approach to identify the volumes with fibroatheroma frames ...

      Acoustic Radiation Force Optical Coherence Elastography
      Mechanical properties, such as the elasticity and viscosity, are often major indicators of diseases. Over the years, tissue mechanical properties have been demonstrated to be an early indicator for cardiovascular disease. Mechanical imaging technologies have been quickly evolving with a goal to effectively diagnose coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis in their early stages. By combining the advantages of acoustic and optical properties, acoustic radiation force optical coherence elastography (ARF-OCE) has ...

      Unifying Structure Analysis and Surrogate-driven Function Regression for Glaucoma OCT Image Screening
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging plays an important role in glaucoma diagnosis in clinical practice. Early detection and timely treatment can prevent glaucoma patients from permanent vision loss. However, only a dearth of automated methods has been developed based on OCT images for glaucoma study. In this paper, we present a novel framework to effectively classify glaucoma OCT images from normal ones. A semi-supervised learning strategy with smoothness assumption is ...

      Motorized capsule for shadow-free OCT imaging and synchronous beam control
      We demonstrate a tethered motorized capsule for unobstructed optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of the esophagus. By using a distal reflector design, we avoided the common shadow artifact induced by the motor wires. A synchronous driving technique features three types of beam-scanning modes of the capsule, i.e., circumferential beam scanning, localized beam scanning, and accurate beam positioning. We characterized these three modes and carried out ex vivo imaging experiments ...
