    2. A Novel Method for Assessing Lamina Cribrosa Structure Ex Vivo Using Anterior Segment Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography

      A Novel Method for Assessing Lamina Cribrosa Structure Ex Vivo Using Anterior Segment Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of anterior segment enhanced depth imaging (EDI) optical coherence tomography (OCT) for ex vivo lamina cribrosa (LC) imaging. Materials and Methods: After removing anterior segment and vitreous, the optic nerve head (ONH) tissue of porcine eyes was placed on a customized eye holder for imaging. Serial EDI OCT B-scans (interval, ~35 [mu]m) of the ONH were obtained using ...

    3. Swept-Source OCT Angiography of Macular Telangiectasia Type 2

      Swept-Source OCT Angiography of Macular Telangiectasia Type 2
      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the central macular microvascular network in patients with macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) using optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based microangiography (OMAG). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Prospective, observational study of patients with MacTel2 evaluated using a swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) prototype. OMAG was performed using a 3 mm 3 mm central foveal raster scan. The algorithm segmented the retina into three layers. Microvascular distribution was depicted as en ...

    5. Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography of Optic Nerve Head Drusen

      Enhanced Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography of Optic Nerve Head Drusen
      Objective To assess the value of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI OCT) in diagnosing and evaluating optic nerve head drusen (ONHD) compared with conventional diagnostic methods. Design Prospective, comparative, cross-sectional study. Participants Thirty-four patients with clinically visible or suspected ONHD in either eye based on dilated optic disc examination or optic disc stereophotography and without ocular comorbidity. Methods Spectral-domain OCT of the optic nerve head in both conventional ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography / acoustic radiation force imaging probe

      Optical coherence tomography / acoustic radiation force imaging probe
      combined system and method synchronizes optical coherence tomography and acoustic radiation force for simultaneously imaging and mechanically displacing tissue in a patient as a detection and analytic tool. An endoscope is provided which has a piezoelectric element and an OCT scanner. The piezoelectric element generates the acoustic force to displace the tissue. The OCT scanner images the tissue and the system determines the mechanical displacement of the tissue. Cancer and ...

    8. Optical Coherence Tomography: A New Imaging Modality for Plaque Characterization and Stent Implantation

      Optical Coherence Tomography: A New Imaging Modality for Plaque Characterization and Stent Implantation
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel, catheter-based, invasive imaging system based on near-infrared light with high image resolution (1520 m). The system allows for unparalleled imaging of the coronary artery lumen, plaque characterization, assessment of coronary stent strut apposition, neointimal coverage, vascular proliferative response, complications such as focal dissection or thrombus formation, and insight into the time course of stent endothelization. This review will describe the currently available developments ...

    9. Tissue-mimicking bladder wall phantoms for evaluating acoustic radiation force-optical coherence elastography systems

      Tissue-mimicking bladder wall phantoms for evaluating acoustic radiation force-optical coherence elastography systems
      Purpose: Acoustic radiation force–optical coherence elastography (ARF-OCE) systems are novel imaging systems that have the potential to simultaneously quantify and characterize the optical and mechanical properties of in vivo tissues. This article presents the construction of bladder wall phantoms for use in ARF-OCE systems. Mechanical, acoustic, and optical properties are reported and compared to published values for the urinary bladder. Methods: The phantom consisted of 0.2000±0.0089 ...

  2. About George Washington University

    George Washington University

    The George Washington University was created in 1821 through an Act of the Congress, fulfilling George Washington’s vision of an institution in the nation’s capital dedicated to educating and preparing future leaders. Today, GW is the largest institution of higher education in the District of Columbia. We have more than 20,000 students—from all 50 states, the District and more than 130 countries—studying a rich range of disciplines: from forensic science and creative writing to international affairs and computer engineering, as well as medicine, public health, the law and public policy. GW comprises three campuses—Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon in Washington, D.C., and Ashburn, VA.—as well as several graduate education centers in the metropolitan area and Hampton Roads, VA.
