    2. Refractive index measurement of the mouse crystalline lens using optical coherence tomography

      Refractive index measurement of the mouse crystalline lens using optical coherence tomography

      In recent years, there has been a growing interest for using mouse models in refractive development and myopia research. The crystalline lens is a critical optical component of the mouse eye that occupies greater than 50% of the ocular space, and significant increases in thickness with age. However, changes in refractive index of the mouse crystalline lens are less known. In this study, we examined the changes in thickness and refractive index of the mouse crystalline lens for two different strains, wild-type (WT) and a nyx mutant ( nob ) over the course of normal visual development or after form deprivation. Refractive ...

    4. Update on acute coronary syndromes: the pathologists' view

      Update on acute coronary syndromes: the pathologists' view

      Although mortality rates from coronary heart disease in the western countries have declined in the last few decades, morbidity caused by this disease is increasing and a substantial number of patients still suffer acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and sudden cardiac death. Acute coronary syndrome occurs as a result of myocardial ischaemia and its manifestations include acute myocardial infarction and unstable angina. Culprit plaque morphology in these patients varies from thrombosis with or without coronary occlusion to sudden narrowing of the lumen from intraplaque haemorrhage. The coronary artery plaque morphologies primarily responsible for thrombosis are plaque rupture, and plaque erosion, with ...

      IVUS and OCT: Either or Survivor...

      Since its introduction over 20 years ago, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) has become the dominant imaging technology, helping us to better understand vessel biology and guiding interventional procedures, and providing information on atherosclerosis progression or regression in clinical trials. During this time period, IVUS has survived many other intracoronary techniques that have fallen by the wayside. Recently, optical coherence tomography (OCT), a far higher resolution optical imaging technique, was approved for clinical use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Suter et al. (1), in a State-of-the-Art review article in this issue of iJACC, have highlighted the relative merits of ...

      Intravascular Imaging Tools in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory: Comprehensive Assessment of Anatomy and Physiology
      Intravascular imaging modalities have an imperative role in contemporary cardiovascular research. Currently, there are several invasive imaging modalities available in the cardiac catheterization laboratory and new technologies are under development. In the current review, we aimed to provide an update on the research applications of contemporary intravascular imaging tools in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. For the purpose of this review, we separately discuss imaging tools for assessment of epicardial disease (fractional flow reserve and hyperemic stenosis resistance), microvascular function (coronary flow reserve, hyperemic microvascular resistance, and index of microcirculatory resistance), endothelial function, atherosclerotic plaque and vascular remodeling (intravascular ultrasound, optical ...
