      Designing visible-light optical coherence tomography towards clinics
      Background: The capabilities of visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) in noninvasive anatomical and functional retinal imaging have been demonstrated by multiple groups in both rodents and healthy human subjects. Translating laboratory prototypes to an integrated clinical-environment-friendly system is required to explore the full potential of vis-OCT in disease management. Methods: We developed and optimized a portable vis-OCT system for human retinal imaging in clinical settings. We acquired raster- and circular-scan ...

    6. Monitoring Acute Stroke in Mouse Model Using Laser Speckle Imaging-Guided Visible-Light Optical Coherence Tomography

      Monitoring Acute Stroke in Mouse Model Using Laser Speckle Imaging-Guided Visible-Light Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objective: Monitoring hemodynamic and vascular changes in the acute stages of mouse stroke models is invaluable in studying ischemic stroke pathophysiology. However, there lacks a tool to simultaneously and dynamically investigate these changes. Methods: We integrated laser speckle imaging (LSI) and visible-light optical coherence tomography (Vis-OCT) to reveal dynamic vascular responses in acute stages in the distal middle cerebral artery occlusion (dMCAO) model in rodents. LSI provides full-field, real-time imaging ...

    7. Visible-light optical coherence tomography oximetry based on circumpapillary scan and graph-search segmentation

      Visible-light optical coherence tomography oximetry based on circumpapillary scan and graph-search segmentation
      Visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) enables retinal oximetry by measuring the oxygen saturation of hemoglobin (sO 2 ) from within individual retinal blood vessels. The sO 2 calculation requires reliable estimation of the true spectrum of backscattered light from the posterior vessel wall. Unfortunately, subject motion and image noise make averaging from multiple A-lines at the same depth position challenging, and lead to inaccurate sO 2 estimation. In this study, we ...

    8. Visible-light optical coherence tomography: a review

      Visible-light optical coherence tomography: a review
      Visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) is an emerging imaging modality, providing new capabilities in both anatomical and functional imaging of biological tissue. It relies on visible light illumination, whereas most commercial and investigational OCTs use near-infrared light. As a result, vis-OCT requires different considerations in engineering design and implementation but brings unique potential benefits to both fundamental research and clinical care of several diseases. Here, we intend to provide a ...

    9. Spectroscopic Doppler analysis for visible-light optical coherence tomography

      Spectroscopic Doppler analysis for visible-light optical coherence tomography
      Retinal oxygen metabolic rate can be effectively measured by visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT), which simultaneously quantifies oxygen saturation and blood flow rate in retinal vessels through spectroscopic analysis and Doppler measurement, respectively. Doppler OCT relates phase variation between sequential A-lines to the axial flow velocity of the scattering medium. The detectable phase shift is between and due to its periodicity, which limits the maximum measurable unambiguous velocity without phase ...

    12. Optical coherence tomography angiography of retinal vascular occlusions produced by imaging-guided laser photocoagulation

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of retinal vascular occlusions produced by imaging-guided laser photocoagulation
      Retinal vascular occlusive diseases represent a major form of vision loss worldwide. Rodent models of these diseases have traditionally relied upon a slit-lamp biomicroscope to help visualize the fundus and subsequently aid delivery of high-power laser shots to a target vessel. Here we describe a multimodal imaging system that can produce, image, and monitor retinal vascular occlusions in rodents. The system combines a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system for cross-sectional ...

      Colposcopic imaging using visible-light optical coherence tomography
      High-resolution colposcopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides key anatomical measures, such as thickness and minor traumatic injury of vaginal epithelium, of the female reproductive tract noninvasively. This information can be helpful in both fundamental investigations in animal models and disease screenings in humans. We present a fiber-based visible-light OCT and two probe designs for colposcopic application. One probe conducts circular scanning using a DC motor, and the other probe is ...

      Retinal oximetry in humans using visible-light optical coherence tomography [Invited]
      We measured hemoglobin oxygen saturation (sO 2 ) in the retinal circulation in healthy humans using visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT). The measurements showed clear oxygenation differences between central retinal arteries and veins close to the optic nerve head. Spatial variations at different vascular branching levels were also revealed. In addition, we presented theoretical and experimental results to establish that noises in OCT intensity followed Rice distribution. We used this knowledge ...

      Feature Of The Week 10/16/2016: Real-time Functional Analysis of Inertial Microfluidic Devices via Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Inertial microfluidic devices have recently attracted considerable interest due to their unique capability of high-throughput filtration, separation, and sorting of particles and live cells in a continuous flow manner. However, the underlying mechanism is not fully understood yet, which is due to limited options for real-time three-dimensional (3D) tracking and analysis of particles and live cells in microfluidic channels. Although micro-particle image velocimetry using optical confocal microscopy can be used ...
