    3. PERCEPTUAL-ASSISTED ADVERSARIAL ADAPTATION FOR CHOROID SEGMENTATION IN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY

      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 ...

    4. 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 ...

      Upside-down position leads to choroidal expansion and anterior chamber shallowing: OCT study
      Background To determine whether dynamic changes in choroidal thickness (CT) cause shallowing of the anterior chamber. Methods 34 healthy volunteers were enrolled. The participants in our study adopted the upside-down position for 1.5min, which was the model we used to study the dynamic changes in CT. Intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation, optical coherence tomography images of the choroid and anterior chamber were obtained at baseline, after being in an upside-down ...

    7. Unifying Structure Analysis and Surrogate-driven Function Regression for Glaucoma OCT Image Screening

      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 ...

    8. Motorized capsule for shadow-free OCT imaging and synchronous beam control

      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 ...

    11. Optical coherence tomography angiography for noninvasive evaluation of angiogenesis in a limb ischemia mouse model

      Optical coherence tomography angiography for noninvasive evaluation of angiogenesis in a limb ischemia mouse model
      We developed an optical coherence tomography angiography technique by improving the speckle contrast algorithm and the imaging process. This technique, which can achieve angiogenesis imaging in vivo without increasing trauma, was used to evaluate the microvasculature in limb ischemia mice. Sixteen left hindlimb ischemia mice were randomly allocated into CuSO 4 and saline groups. Within 7 days after treatment, limb ischemic damage, temperature and histological staining were assessed by traditional ...

      Optical coherence tomography substudy of a prospective multicentre randomised post-market trial to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Firehawk cobalt-chromium coronary stent (rapamycin target-eluting) system for the treatment of atherosclerotic le
      Aims: Durable polymer drug-eluting stents (DP-DES) may contribute to persistent inflammation, delayed endothelial healing and subsequent late DES thrombosis. The aim of this optical coherence tomography (OCT) substudy was to compare healing and neointimal coverage of a novel bioabsorbable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (Firehawk ) (BP-DES) versus the DP-DES (XIENCE) at 90 days in an all-comers patient population. Methods and results: The TARGET All Comers study is a prospective multicentre randomised post-market ...

      Improved speckle contrast optical coherence tomography angiography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is becoming a clinically useful and important imaging technique due to its ability to provide high-resolution structural imaging in vivo. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) can visualize vasculature imaging of biological tissues. With the advent of Fourier-domain OCT, numerous OCTA techniques have been developed to detect the microvasculature in vivo. The macular region of the fundus is separated into retinal and choroid regions by segmentation algorithm ...

    14. Deep Learning-Based Detection and Segmentation for BVS Struts in IVOCT Images

      Deep Learning-Based Detection and Segmentation for BVS Struts in IVOCT Images
      Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold (BVS) is the latest stent type for the treatment of coronary artery disease. A major challenge of BVS is that once it is malapposed during implantation, it may potentially increase the risks of late stent thrombosis. Therefore it is important to analyze struts malapposition during implantation. This paper presents an automatic method for BVS malapposition analysis in intravascular optical coherence tomography images. Struts are firstly detected by ...

      A simple system of swept source optical coherence tomography for a large imaging depth range
      In swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT), the imaging depth range sometimes limits its application, such as the whole eye measurement. The methods of extending depth range usually need to redesign the system or add some additional devices. In this paper, we propose a simple system of SSOCT for a large imaging depth range. The system is the same as the original SSOCT with using the swept source clock signal ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography Examination in Myocardial Infarction
      Acute myocardial infarction (AMI), which results from coronary artery occlusion due to thrombosis, remains the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Pathological studies have demonstrated that plaque rupture accompanied by subsequent thrombus formation is the main mechanism responsible for AMI, accounting for approximately two thirds of cases; the remaining approximately one third of cases are the result of plaque erosion. Moreover, previous studies showed that the risk of cardiovascular ...
