    2. Optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia

      Optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia
      Background and Objectives Optical coherence tomography (OCT) permits high-resolution imaging of tissue subsurfaces up to 2 mm in depth. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy and reproducibility of OCT in the characterization of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and to distinguish between different CIN grades. Study Design/Materials and Methods Colposcopy-guided OCT images were taken from unsuspicious and suspicious areas in women with suspected CIN. Each woman ...

    7. Combined image-processing algorithms for improved optical coherence tomography of prostate nerves

      Combined image-processing algorithms for improved optical coherence tomography of prostate nerves
      Cavernous nerves course along the surface of the prostate gland and are responsible for erectile function. These nerves are at risk of injury during surgical removal of a cancerous prostate gland. In this work, a combination of segmentation, denoising, and edge detection algorithms are applied to time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of rat prostate to improve identification of cavernous nerves. First, OCT images of the prostate are segmented to ...

    8. Polarization-sensitive common path optical coherence reflectometry/tomography device

      Polarization-sensitive common path optical coherence reflectometry/tomography device
      Polarization sensitive common path OCT/OCR devices are presented. Optical radiation from a source is converted into two cross-polarized replicas propagating therethrough with a predetermined optical path length difference. The two cross-polarized replicas are then delivered to an associated sample by a delivering device, which is, preferably, an optical fiber probe. A combination optical radiation is produced in at least one secondary interferometer by combining a corresponding portion of an ...

    9. Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to Flexible Bronchoscopy in the Diagnosis of Lung Cancer: A Pilot Study

      Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to Flexible Bronchoscopy in the Diagnosis of Lung Cancer: A Pilot Study
      Background: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and the second most common type of cancer in both men and women. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can generate high resolution cross-sectional images of complex, living tissues in real time. The objectives of this study were to determine the feasibility of using OCT during flexible bronchoscopy, and to preliminarily assess the ability of OCT to distinguish ...

    10. Study of the Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to Unaided Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid for the Diagnosis of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix

      Study of the Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to Unaided Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid for the Diagnosis of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix
      Objectives: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an adjunct to unaided visual inspection using acetic acid (VIA) in the detection of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2 (CIN 2) in a real-time clinical evaluation. Background: This clinical study was a prospective cross-sectional comparative trial that screened 1000 patients (aged 30-50 years) in a low-resource setting. Women with abnormal cervical cytology or positive human papillomavirus (HPV) tests ...
