    2. Feature Of The Week 7/7/13: Visualization of Synthetic Mesh In Vaginal Walls Using OCT

      Feature Of The Week 7/7/13: Visualization of Synthetic Mesh In Vaginal Walls Using OCT

      Owing to the recent upsurge in adverse events reported after mesh-augmented pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repairs, our aim was to determine whether the location and depth of synthetic mesh can be measured postoperatively within the vaginal tissue microstructure using optical coherence tomography (OCT ). Seventeen patients with prior mesh-augmented repairs were recruited for participation. Patients were included if they had undergone an abdominal sacral colpopexy (ASC) or vaginal repair with mesh. Exclusion criteria were a postoperative period of <6 months, or the finding of mesh exposure on examination. OCT was used to image the vaginal wall at various POP-Q sites. If ...

    3. Clinical optical coherence tomography in head and neck oncology: overview and outlook

      Clinical optical coherence tomography in head and neck  oncology: overview and outlook

      Objective Optical coherence tomography is a high-resolution and minimally invasive optical imaging method, which provides in vivo cross-sectional images of living tissue in real-time. Our intention is to present a contemporary and comprehensive review on the role of optical coherence tomography in head and neck oncology. Recent fi ndings Promising results have been published in small, single-centre studies applying optical coherence tomography in clinical settings for the diagnostic workup of superficial pathologies of the upper aerodigestive tract, showing that it can be a helpful adjunct to standard white light endoscopy. Using optical coherence tomography, microanatomical structures of healthy and diseased ...

    4. Feature Of The Week 2/3/13: Automated Segmentation Algorithm for Medical Image Processing using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Feature Of The Week 2/3/13: Automated Segmentation Algorithm for Medical Image Processing using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive optical imaging technique for in vivo and in situ imaging of microstructure in biological tissues. Improvements in identification, imaging, and visualization of biological microstructures are necessary before OCT clinical use. Using the proposed algorithm, OCT images of the prostate and cervicovaginal epithelium were segmented to differentiate the cavernous nerves from the prostate gland and to detect minute changes in the epithelial layer, respectively. To detect these nerves and epithelial layer changes, three image features were employed: Gabor filter, Daubechies wavelet, and Laws filter. The Gabor feature was applied with different standard deviations in ...

    5. Cervical Epithelial Brightness by Optical Coherence Tomography Can Determine Histological Grades of Cervical Neoplasia

      Cervical Epithelial Brightness by Optical Coherence Tomography Can Determine Histological Grades of Cervical Neoplasia

      Objective: The study aimed to determine if the difference in cervical epithelium brightness, as measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT), has potential as a distinguishing characteristic of normal, low-grade, high-grade (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2+), and cancer histological findings. Materials and Methods: Information from 476 women was available for analysis. Demographic information was collected through in-person interview. All participants were human papillomavirus positive and/or had abnormal cytological finding and underwent colposcopy or unaided visual inspection and examination by OCT by quadrant. All women had a minimum of 4 OCT-matched cervical biopsies and endocervical curettage. Two sample t tests were used ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography device and method having improved boundary control and distortion correction

      Optical coherence tomography device and method having improved boundary control and distortion correction

      Variants of an interferometric device are developed for examining internal structures of objects by means of optical coherence tomography, which allow for controlling a boundary location of the observation range. The device also allows for correcting a distortion of the tomographic image of the object under study, caused by lateral scanning, due to aberrations of the optical path length for the low-coherence optical radiation directed towards the object. Embodiments of the device include either one, or two fiber-optic controlled scanners, which in different combinations perform a function of in-depth scanning of the coherence window of low-coherence optical radiation within the ...

    7. Application of optical coherence tomography and high-frequency ultrasound imaging during noninvasive laser vasectomy

      Application of optical coherence tomography and high-frequency ultrasound imaging during noninvasive laser vasectomy

      A noninvasive approach to vasectomy may eliminate male fear of complications related to surgery and increase its acceptance. Noninvasive laser thermal occlusion of the canine vas deferens has recently been reported. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and high-frequency ultrasound (HFUS) are compared for monitoring laser thermal coagulation of the vas in an acute canine model. Bilateral noninvasive laser coagulation of the vas was performed in six dogs (n = 12 vasa) using a Ytterbium fiber laser wavelength of 1075 nm, incident power of 9.0 W, pulse duration of 500 ms, pulse rate of 1 Hz, and 3-mm-diameter spot. Cryogen spray cooling ...
