    2. Impact-induced cartilage damage assessed using polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Impact-induced cartilage damage assessed using polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Non-invasive determination of structural changes in articular cartilage immediately after impact and rehydration provides insight into the response and recovery of the soft tissue, as well as provides a potential methodology for clinicians to quantify early degenerative changes. In this study, we use polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) to examine subtle alterations of the optical properties in healthy and early-stage degenerate articular cartilage immediately after impact loading to identify structurally ...

    3. Towards real time assessment of intramuscular fat content in meat using optical fiber-based optical coherence tomography

      Towards real time assessment of intramuscular fat content in meat using optical fiber-based optical coherence tomography
      We consider the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging to predict the quality of meat. We find that intramuscular fat (IMF) absorbs infrared light about nine times stronger than muscle, which enables us to estimate fat content in intact meat samples. The method is made very efficient by extracting relevant information from the three-dimensional high-resolution images generated by OCT using principal component analysis (PCA). The principal components are then ...

    4. Inverse spectroscopic optical coherence tomography (ISOCT) for characterization of particle size and concentration

      Inverse spectroscopic optical coherence tomography (ISOCT) for characterization of particle size and concentration
      Inverse spectroscopic optical coherence tomography (IS-OCT) methods apply inverse problem formulations to acquired spectra to estimate depth-resolved sample properties. In the current study, we modelled the time-frequency-distributions using Lambert-Beer law and implemented IS-OCT using backscattering spectra calculated from Mie theory, then demonstrated the algorithm on polystyrene microspheres under idealized conditions. The results are significant because the method is compatible with high concentrations and broad diameter distributions of scattering particles such ...

    5. Fourier domain quantum optical coherence tomography

      Fourier domain quantum optical coherence tomography
      Quantum optical coherence tomography (Q-OCT) is the non-classical counterpart of optical coherence tomography (OCT), a high-resolution 3D imaging technique based on white-light interferometry. Because Q-OCT uses a source of frequency-entangled photon pairs, not only is the axial resolution not affected by dispersion mismatch in the interferometer but is also inherently improved by a factor of two. Unfortunately, practical applications of Q-OCT are hindered by image-scrambling artefacts and slow acquisition times ...

    6. Quantum Optical Coherence Tomography using two photon joint spectrum detection (JS-Q-OCT)

      Quantum Optical Coherence Tomography using two photon joint spectrum detection (JS-Q-OCT)
      Quantum Optical Coherence Tomography (Q-OCT) is the non-classical counterpart of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) - a high-resolution 3D imaging technique based on white-light interferometry. Because Q-OCT uses a source of frequency-entangled photon pairs, not only is the axial resolution not affected by dispersion mismatch in the interferometer, but is also inherently improved by a factor of square root of two. Unfortunately, practical applications of QOCT are hindered by image-scrambling artefacts and ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography imaging of evoked neural activity in sciatic nerve of rat

      Optical coherence tomography imaging of evoked neural activity in sciatic nerve of rat
      Significance: Imaging neural activity in myelinated tissue using optical coherence tomography (OCT) creates exciting possibilities for functional imaging in the peripheral and central nervous systems. Aim: To investigate changes in OCT images in response to evoked neural activity in sciatic nerve of rat in vitro. Approach: M-scans were obtained on peripheral nerves of rat using a swept source polarisation sensitive OCT system, while a nerve cuff acquired electrical neural recordings ...

    8. Quantum-inspired detection for Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Quantum-inspired detection for Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      The intensity levels allowed by safety standards (ANSI or ICNIRP) limit the amount of light that can be used in a clinical setting to image highly scattering or absorptive tissues with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). To achieve high-sensitivity imaging at low intensity levels, we adapt a detection scheme - which is used in quantum optics for providing information about spectral correlations of photons - into a standard spectral domain OCT system. This ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography complements confocal microscopy for investigation of multicellular tumour spheroids

      Optical coherence tomography complements confocal microscopy for investigation of multicellular tumour spheroids
      Knowledge of optical properties, such as the refractive index (RI), of biological tissues is important in optical imaging, as they influence the distribution and propagation of light in tissue. To accurately study the response of cancerous cells to drugs, optimised imaging protocols are required. This study uses a simple custom-built spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system to conduct RI measurements of multicellular spheroids, three-dimensional (3D) in-vitro culture systems, of ...

    11. Quantifying birefringence in the bovine model of early osteoarthritis using polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography and mechanical indentation

      Quantifying birefringence in the bovine model of early osteoarthritis using polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography and mechanical indentation
      Recent studies have shown potential for using polarisation sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) to study cartilage morphology, and to be potentially used as an in vivo , non-invasive tool for detecting osteoarthritic changes. However, there has been relatively limited ability of this method to quantify the subtle changes that occur in the early stages of cartilage degeneration. An established mechanical indenting technique that has previously been used to examine the microstructural ...

    12. Extracting morphometric information from rat sciatic nerve using optical coherence tomography

      Extracting morphometric information from rat sciatic nerve using optical coherence tomography
      We apply three optical coherence tomography (OCT) image analysis techniques to extract morphometric information from OCT images obtained on peripheral nerves of rat. The accuracy of each technique is evaluated against histological measurements accurate to +/-1 m. The three OCT techniques are: 1) average depth resolved profile (ADRP); 2) autoregressive spectral estimation (AR-SE); and, 3) correlation of the derivative spectral estimation (CoD-SE). We introduce a scanning window to the ADRP ...

      Using polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography and mechanical indentation to assess cartilage degeneration in the bovine model of early osteoarthritis
      Recent studies have shown potential for using polarisation sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) to study cartilage morphology, and this presents a useful real-time non-invasive tool for detecting osteoarthritic changes. However, there has been relatively limited ability of this method to quantify the subtle changes in the early stages of joint degeneration. In this study, we investigate the ability of PS-OCT to detect microscale degenerative changes in cartilage, following compression, using ...
