    3. Optical Coherence Tomographic Evaluation of the Effect of Cigarette Smoking on Vascular Healing after Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation

      Optical Coherence Tomographic Evaluation of the Effect of Cigarette Smoking on Vascular Healing after Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation

      Cigarette smoking is known to be deleterious to patients with coronary artery disease, however the effect of smoking on vascular responses after coronary drug-eluting stent implantation is unknown. We sought to examine vascular response after sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation in patients with ongoing smoking using optical coherence tomography (OCT), compared with former smokers and nonsmokers. We identified 181 SESs in 140 subjects who underwent follow-up OCT imaging. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: current smokers (n = 28), former smokers (n = 35), and nonsmokers (n = 77). Stent strut coverage, neointimal characteristics, and strut malapposition were evaluated. The incidence of uncovered stent ...

    4. Inflammatory Papillitis in Uveitis: Response to Treatment and Use of Optic Nerve Optical Coherence Tomography for Monitoring

      Inflammatory Papillitis in Uveitis: Response to Treatment and Use of Optic Nerve Optical Coherence Tomography for Monitoring

      Purpose : To describe the clinical course of uveitis-associated inflammatory papillitis and evaluate the utility and reproducibility of optic nerve spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods : Data on 22 eyes of 14 patients with uveitis-related papillitis and optic nerve imaging were reviewed. SD-OCT measure reproducibility was determined and parameters were compared in active vs. inactive uveitis. Results : Papillitis resolution lagged behind uveitis resolution in three patients. For SD-OCT measures, the intraclass correlation coefficients were 99.1–100% and 86.9–100% for intraobserver and interobserver reproducibility, respectively. All SD-OCT optic nerve measures except inferior and nasal peripapillary retinal thicknesses were ...

    9. Hand scanning optical coherence tomography imaging using encoder feedback

      Hand scanning optical coherence tomography imaging using encoder feedback

      We present a new method for generating micron-scale OCT images of interstitial tissue with a hand scanning probe and a linear optical encoder that senses probe movement relative to a fixed reference point, i.e., tissue surface. Based on this approach, we demonstrate high resolution optical imaging of biological tissues through a very long biopsy needle. Minor artifacts caused by tissue noncompliance are corrected using a software algorithm which detects the simple repetition of the adjacent A-scans. This hand-scanning OCT imaging approach offers the physician the freedom to access imaging sites of interest repeatedly.

    10. Ultrahigh speed endoscopic optical coherence tomography for gastroenterology

      Ultrahigh speed endoscopic optical coherence tomography for gastroenterology

      We describe an ultrahigh speed endoscopic swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) system for clinical gastroenterology using a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) and micromotor imaging catheter. The system had a 600 kHz axial scan rate and 8 µm axial resolution in tissue. Imaging was performed with a 3.2 mm diameter imaging catheter at 400 frames per second with a 12 µm spot size. Three-dimensional OCT (3D-OCT) imaging was performed in patients with a cross section of pathologies undergoing upper and lower endoscopy. The use of distally actuated imaging catheters enabled OCT imaging with more flexibility, such as volumetric imaging ...

      Low coherence interferometry approach for aiding fine needle aspiration biopsie

      We present portable preclinical low-coherence interference (LCI) instrumentation for aiding fine needle aspiration biopsies featuring the second-generation LCI-based biopsy probe and an improved scoring algorithm for tissue differentiation. Our instrument and algorithm were tested on 38 mice with cultured tumor mass and we show the specificity, sensitivity, and positive predictive value of tumor detection of over 0.89, 0.88, and 0.96, respectively.
