    2. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): The Future of Diagnostics

      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): The Future of Diagnostics
      In the 1990s new optical imaging technology (OCT) was developed which has been utilized in Ophthalmology applications. The first commercial instrument was introduced for this purpose by Carl Zeiss Meditec AG. It is reported that subsequent advances in near infrared light allowed OTC imaging to be used in strongly scattering tissues. As reported in Icp Science (http://icpscience.icp.ort/0034-4885/66/2/204), OCT’s optical biopsy quality allowed ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging for Evaluating the Photobiomodulation Effects on Tissue Regeneration in Periodontal Tissue

      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive method for imaging dental microstructure which has the potential of evaluating the health of periodontal tissue. OCT provides an “optical biopsy” of tissue 2–3 mm in depth. This sixth modality of imaging was pioneered at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. OCT is based on the optical scattering signatures within tissue structure. With the use of a broad spectrum bandwidth light source, high resolution ...

  3. Quotes

    1. Research clearly indicates that NIR Imaging as a screening modality provides significantly more detailed information, particularly on the occlusal (biting) surfaces, than currently used x-ray, digital or conventional. We have been aware of the benefits of NIR technology for some time and recent advancements in sensor technology now make commercialization possible, at an economic cost. We feel that we have reached the point where the full potential of light-based diagnostic imaging technology can now be exploited to create highly advanced and economical diagnostic imaging modalities for dentistry.
