    2. Screening cervical and oesophageal tissues using optical coherence tomography

      Screening cervical and oesophageal tissues using optical coherence tomography
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a technique that allows imaging tissue in three spatial dimensions. Such a technique makes it possible to examine the subsurface of the tissue. The depth of penetration into the tissue can be tailored by tuning the wavelength of the light source. While in some cases it is desirable to obtain deep penetration of the sample, when scanning for cancerous changes, it may only be necessary ...

    3. Rapid endoscopic identification and destruction of degenerating Barrett’s mucosal neoplasia

      Rapid endoscopic identification and destruction of degenerating Barrett’s mucosal neoplasia
      There are distinct challenges implicit to the development of minimally invasive endoscopic surgery for the eradication of early neoplasia in Barrett’s oesophagus. Endoscopic resection and ablation of high-grade dysplasia and mucosal cancer offer alternative therapeutic options to those unsuitable or unwilling to contemplate radical surgical excision. It may also become the treatment of choice in the future. Technological developments enable the instantaneous and non-invasive diagnosis of microscopic tissue abnormalities ...

    4. Optical and molecular techniques to identify tumor margins within the larynx

      Optical and molecular techniques to identify tumor margins within the larynx
      Failure to remove tumor cells from the larynx significantly increases the risk of local recurrence following surgical excision. Healthy tissue must be preserved to optimize long-term vocal and swallowing function. It is essential to accurately distinguish between healthy mucosa, dysplasia, and invasive carcinoma. Optical and molecular examining technologies have been developed to improve tumor margin identification in vivo. We aimed to review the efficacy of these technologies. Published articles were ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography: A potential tool for unsupervised prediction of treatment response for Port-Wine Stains

      Background: Treatment of Port-Wine Stains (PWS) suffers from the absence of a reliable real-time tool for monitoring a clinical endpoint. Response to treatment varies substantially according to blood vessel geometry. Even though optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been identified as a modality with potential to suit this need, it has not been introduced as a standard clinical monitoring tool. One reason could be that – although OCT acquires data in real-time ...

    6. Revolutionary imaging device used to detect cancer - video

      Revolutionary imaging device used to detect cancer - video
      DOCTORS in Gloucestershire have developed a new weapon in the fight against cancer. The revolutionary handheld device uses infrared beams that pass through the body to detect cancerous tissue. It means tumours can be detected quickly and without the need for a painful biopsy. Optical coherence tomography has been developed by the world-leading oncology team at Cheltenham General and Gloucestershire Royal hospitals. Similar to echoes in ultrasound, the infrared beams ...

    7. Pioneering Cancer treatment technology backed by London Seed Capital

      Optical imaging company Michelson Diagnostics has secured £600,000 of early stage funding, enabling it to further enhance its pioneering technology and pursue in-vivo trials in a clinical environment. This innovative, next generation, imaging technology addresses the key need for clinicians to see, during an operation and in real time, the location and extent of a tumour, for a range of cancer types. This enables faster, more accurate cancer surgery ...

  2. About Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

    Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

    Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. In July 2004 Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust became one of the UK's first NHS Foundation Trusts. Being a Foundation Trust allows us to do things differently from other hospitals, part of the NHS, but capable of making decisions locally.

    Part of this local accountability and one of the most important differences is that the Trust has a Council of Governors, the majority of whom are elected to represent the views of members.

    Through our members and the Council of Governors, we are better able to listen and respond to the views of local people, patients and staff. The Trust has a membership of around 15,000 made up of people living within Gloucestershire, patients treated by the Trust and Trust staff.

    Anyone who lives in Gloucestershire or who lives outside the county but has been a patient within the last three years can become a member. (Please visit the Foundation Members Area for further information)
