    2. Processing-based approach for resolving the sample optic axis in endoscopic polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Processing-based approach for resolving the sample optic axis in endoscopic polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) that utilizes a rotationally-scanning catheter has a variety of potential biomedical applications in luminal organ systems due to its ability to provide intrinsic contrast for birefringent tissue. Incorporating the optic axis (OA) of the tissue greatly enhances this potential by also permitting information about the orientation of the tissue to be extracted; however, measurement distortion that occurs has up to this point made it ...

    3. Clinical and surgical implications of intraoperative optical coherence tomography imaging for benign pediatric vocal fold lesions

      Clinical and surgical implications of intraoperative optical coherence tomography imaging for benign pediatric vocal fold lesions
      Introduction Benign vocal disorders in children include an extensive list of abnormalities creating a variety of debilitating levels of dysphonia. Precise delineation of the benign lesion type and margins may have significant public health implications in children. An innovative technology such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) is being explored to delineate pediatric benign laryngeal lesions. An accurate assessment of the subepithelial morphology may help towards tailoring more personalized therapeutic treatments ...

    4. Looking Outside The Maculaa Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Looking Outside The Maculaa Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Purpose: To evaluate baseline features and morphologic changes of vitreoretinal adhesion and outer retinal layers outside the macula after intravitreal ocriplasmin injection. To study the relation between vitreous detachment and attenuation of retinal outer segments signal. Methods: Retrospective cases series of 15 eyes. Each eye was scanned with the 55 wide-field optical coherence tomography lens in 6 different locations, three horizontal B-scan (central, temporal, and nasal) and three vertical B-scan ...

    5. In Vivo Vibration Measurement of Middle Ear Structure Using Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography: Preliminary Study

      In Vivo Vibration Measurement of Middle Ear Structure Using Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography: Preliminary Study
      Objectives Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOCT) is useful for both, the spatially resolved measurement of the tympanic membrane (TM) oscillation and high-resolution imaging. We demonstrated a new technique capable of providing real-time two-dimensional Doppler OCT image of rapidly oscillatory latex mini-drum and in vivo rat TM and ossicles. Methods Using DOCT system, the oscillation of sample was measured at frequency range of 14 kHz at an output of 15 W ...

    6. Nano-optic endoscope for high-resolution optical coherence tomography in vivo

      Nano-optic endoscope for high-resolution optical coherence tomography in vivo
      Acquisition of high-resolution images from within internal organs using endoscopic optical imaging has numerous clinical applications. However, difficulties associated with optical aberrations and the trade-off between transverse resolution and depth of focus significantly limit the scope of applications. Here, we integrate a metalens, with the ability to modify the phase of incident light at subwavelength level, into the design of an endoscopic optical coherence tomography catheter (termed nano-optic endoscope) to ...

    7. Differences in coronary plaque morphology between East Asian and Western White patients: an optical coherence tomography study

      Differences in coronary plaque morphology between East Asian and Western White patients: an optical coherence tomography study
      Aims Prevalence of coronary artery disease as well as cardiac mortality varies between Asian and White patients. However, the link between race and plaque characteristics in patients with coronary artery disease remains largely unexplored. Thus, we aimed to investigate the detailed culprit plaque characteristics between East Asian and White patients using optical coherence tomography . Patients and methods A total of 101 East Asians were matched to 101 White patients. Matching ...

    8. Quantitative depolarization measurements for fiber‐based polarization‐sensitive optical frequency domain imaging of the retinal pigment epithelium

      Quantitative depolarization measurements for fiber‐based polarization‐sensitive optical frequency domain imaging of the retinal pigment epithelium
      A full quantitative evaluation of the depolarization of light may serve to assess concentrations of depolarizing particles in the retinal pigment epithelium and to investigate their role in retinal diseases in the human eye. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) use spatial incoherent averaging to compute depolarization. Depolarization depends on accurate measurements of the polarization states at the receiver but also on the polarization state incident ...

      Improving Access—but Not Outcomes—With Iris Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Throughout the past 2 decades, the exquisite, real-time ocular imaging attainable with optical coherence tomography (OCT) has transformed the practice of ophthalmology. Further increases in processing speed have led to the introduction of OCT angiography (OCT-A). 1 Preliminary work has shown that it is possible to use OCT-A to characterize the vasculature of the iris. 1 The current standard for assessing anterior segment circulation is iris angiography, but this approach ...

    10. Volumetric non-local-means based speckle reduction for optical coherence tomography

      Volumetric non-local-means based speckle reduction for optical coherence tomography
      We present a novel tomographic non-local-means based despeckling technique, TNode, for optical coherence tomography. TNode is built upon a weighting similarity criterion derived for speckle in a three-dimensional similarity window. We present an implementation using a two-dimensional search window, enabling the despeckling of volumes in the presence of motion artifacts, and an implementation using a three-dimensional window with improved performance in motion-free volumes. We show that our technique provides effective ...

    11. Ruptures and Thickening : Optical Coherence Tomography as the Arbiter of the Fibrous Cap

      Ruptures and Thickening : Optical Coherence Tomography as the Arbiter of the Fibrous Cap
      Coronary artery disease remains a leading cause of mortality worldwide, primarily through acute events mediated by progression and disruption of thrombosis-provoking atheroma. The necrotic core of advanced atheroma harbors highly prothrombotic material, including components of tissue factor, von Willebrand factor, and plasminogen activator inhibitor1. Exposure of these contents to flowing blood can spur thrombosis and is a critical feature of many acute coronary syndromes (ACS). It is therefore vital that ...

    12. Wide dynamic range high-speed three-dimensional quantitative OCT angiography with a hybrid-beam scan

      Wide dynamic range high-speed three-dimensional quantitative OCT angiography with a hybrid-beam scan
      We demonstrate a novel hybrid-beam scanning-based quantitative optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) that provides high-speed wide dynamic range blood flow speed imaging. The hybrid-beam scanning scheme enables multiple OCTA image acquisitions with a wide range of multiple time intervals simultaneously providing wide dynamic range blood flow speed imaging independent of the blood vessel orientation, which was quantified over a speed range of 0.6 104 mm / s 0.6104mm/s ...
