    5. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...

    8. Systems and methods for improved visualization during minimally invasive procedures

      Systems and methods for improved visualization during minimally invasive procedures
      Systems and methods are provided for performing a minimally invasive procedure in an automated or semi-automated fashion, where an imaging probe having an imaging modality compatible with the presence of an intraluminal medium is employed to record images that are processed to identify regions of interest and direct a medium displacement operation during a subsequent minimally invasive operation that benefits from the displacement of the intraluminal medium. The minimally invasive ...

    9. Blood flow velocity measurement by endovascular Doppler optical coherence tomography

      Blood flow velocity measurement by endovascular Doppler optical coherence tomography
      Blood flow velocity and volumetric flow measurements are important parameters for assessment of the severity of stenosis and the outcome of interventional therapy. However, feasibility of intravascular flow measurement using a rotational catheter based phase resolved Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOCT) is difficult. Motion artefacts induced by the rotating optical imaging catheter, and the radially dependent noise background of measured Doppler signals are the main challenges encountered. In this study ...

    10. Intraoperative handheld optical coherence tomography forward-viewing probe: physical performance and preliminary animal imaging

      Intraoperative handheld optical coherence tomography forward-viewing probe: physical performance and preliminary animal imaging
      A prototype intraoperative hand-held optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging probe was developed to provide micron resolution cross-sectional images of subsurface tissue during open surgery. This new ergonomic probe was designed based on electrostatically driven optical fibers, and packaged into a catheter probe in the form factor of clinically accepted Bayonet shaped neurosurgical probes. Optical properties of the probe were measured to have a ~20 μm spot size, 5 mm working ...

    11. Hybrid intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography catheter for imaging of coronary atherosclerosis

      Hybrid intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography catheter for imaging of coronary atherosclerosis
      Objective To demonstrate the feasibility of imaging human coronary atherosclerosis using a novel hybrid intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging catheter. Background IVUS and OCT have synergistic advantages and recent studies involving both modalities suggest the use of a hybrid imaging catheter may offer improved guidance of coronary interventions and plaque characterization. Methods A 1.3 m custom hybrid IVUS-OCT imaging probe was built within a 4F ...

    12. Comprehensive data visualization for high resolution endovascular carotid arterial wall imaging

      Comprehensive data visualization for high resolution endovascular carotid arterial wall imaging
      Carotid angioplasty and stenting is a minimally invasive endovascular procedure that may benefit from in vivo high resolution imaging for monitoring the physical placement of the stent and potential complications. The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the ability of optical coherence tomography to construct high resolution 2D and 3D images of stenting in porcine carotid artery. Four Yorkshire pigs were anaesthetized and catheterized. A state-of-the-art optical coherence ...
