    3. In Vivo Imaging of the Mouse Reproductive Organs, Embryo Transfer, and Oviduct Cilia Dynamics Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      In Vivo Imaging of the Mouse Reproductive Organs, Embryo Transfer, and Oviduct Cilia Dynamics Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      The oviduct (or fallopian tube) serves as the site where a number of major reproductive events occur for the start of a new life in mammals. Understanding the oviduct physiology is essential to uncover hidden mechanisms of the human reproduction and its disorders, yet the current analysis of the oviduct that is largely limited to in vitro imaging is a significant technical hurdle. To overcome this barrier, we have recently ...

    4. In vivo three-dimensional tracking of sperm behaviors in the mouse oviduct

      In vivo three-dimensional tracking of sperm behaviors in the mouse oviduct
      Mammalian sperm evolutionarily acquired complex mechanisms regulating their behaviors, which are thought to be critical in navigating through the female reproductive tract toward fertilization. However, all current knowledge of this process is largely extrapolated from in vitro and ex vivo studies, because in vivo analysis of sperm in their native fertilization environment has not been possible. Here we report a functional optical coherence tomography approach that allows, for the first ...

    5. Functional optical coherence tomography for live dynamic analysis of mouse embryonic cardiogenesis

      Functional optical coherence tomography for live dynamic analysis of mouse embryonic cardiogenesis
      Blood flow, heart contraction, and tissue stiffness are important regulators of cardiac morphogenesis and function during embryonic development. Defining how these factors are integrated is critically important to advance prevention, diagnostics, and treatment of congenital heart defects. Mammalian embryonic development is taking place deep within the female body, which makes cardiodynamic imaging and analysis during early developmental stages in humans inaccessible. With thousands of mutant lines available and well-established genetic ...

    6. Live dynamic analysis of mouse embryonic cardiogenesis with functional optical coherence tomography

      Live dynamic analysis of mouse embryonic cardiogenesis with functional optical coherence tomography
      Hemodynamic load, contractile forces, and tissue elasticity are regulators of cardiac development and contribute to the mechanical homeostasis of the developing vertebrate heart. Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a prevalent condition in the United States that affects 8 in 1000 live births[1], and has been linked to disrupted cardiac biomechanics[2-4]. Therefore, it is important to understand how these forces integrate and regulate vertebrate cardiac development to inform clinical ...

    7. Biomechanical assessment of myocardial infarction using optical coherence elastography

      Biomechanical assessment of myocardial infarction using optical coherence elastography
      Myocardial infarction (MI) leads to cardiomyocyte loss, impaired cardiac function, and heart failure. Molecular genetic analyses of myocardium in mouse models of ischemic heart disease have provided great insight into the mechanisms of heart regeneration, which is promising for novel therapies after MI. Although biomechanical factors are considered an important aspect in cardiomyocyte proliferation, there are limited methods for mechanical assessment of the heart in the mouse MI model. This ...

    8. Prolonged in vivo functional assessment of the mouse oviduct using optical coherence tomography through a dorsal imaging window

      Prolonged in vivo functional assessment of the mouse oviduct using optical coherence tomography through a dorsal imaging window
      The oviduct (or fallopian tube) serves as an environment for gamete transport, fertilization, and preimplantation embryo development in mammals. Although there has been increasing evidence linking infertility with disrupted oviduct function, the specific roles that the oviduct plays in both normal and impaired reproductive processes remain unclear. The mouse is an important mammalian model to study human reproduction. However, most of the current analyses of the mouse oviduct rely on ...

    9. Comparison and combination of rotational imaging optical coherence tomography and selective plane illumination microscopy for embryonic study

      Comparison and combination of rotational imaging optical coherence tomography and selective plane illumination microscopy for embryonic study
      Several optical imaging techniques have been applied for high-resolution embryonic imaging using different contrast mechanisms, each with their own benefits and limitations. In this study, we imaged the same E9.5 mouse embryo with rotational imaging optical coherence tomography (RI-OCT) and selective plane illumination microscopy (SPIM). RI-OCT overcomes optical penetration limits of traditional OCT imaging that prohibit full-body imaging of mouse embryos at later stages by imaging the samples from ...

    10. Speckle variance optical coherence tomography of blood flow in the beating mouse embryonic heart

      Speckle variance optical coherence tomography of blood flow in the beating mouse embryonic heart
      Efficient separation of blood and cardiac wall in the beating embryonic heart is essential and critical for experiment-based computational modelling and analysis of early-stage cardiac biomechanics. Although speckle variance optical coherence tomography (SV-OCT) relying on calculation of intensity variance over consecutively acquired frames is a powerful approach for segmentation of fluid flow from static tissue, application of this method in the beating embryonic heart remains challenging because moving structures generate ...

    11. A dual-modality optical coherence tomography and selective plane illumination microscopy system for mouse embryonic imaging

      A dual-modality optical coherence tomography and selective plane illumination microscopy system for mouse embryonic imaging
      Both optical coherence tomography (OCT) and selective plane illumination microscopy (SPIM) are frequently used in mouse embryonic research for high-resolution three-dimensional imaging. However, each of these imaging methods provide a unique and independent advantage: SPIM provides morpho-functional information through immunofluorescence and OCT provides a method for whole-embryo 3D imaging. In this study, we have combined rotational imaging OCT and SPIM into a single, dual-modality device to image E9.5 mouse ...

    12. Live dynamic analysis of the developing cardiovascular system in mice

      Live dynamic analysis of the developing cardiovascular system in mice
      The study of the developing cardiovascular system in mice is important for understanding human cardiogenesis and congenital heart defects. Our research focuses on imaging early development in the mouse embryo to specifically understand cardiovascular development under the regulation of dynamic factors like contractile force and blood flow using optical coherence tomography (OCT). We have previously developed an OCT based approach that combines static embryo culture and advanced image processing with ...

    13. Dynamic imaging and quantitative analysis of cranial neural tube closure in the mouse embryo using optical coherence tomography

      Dynamic imaging and quantitative analysis of cranial neural tube closure in the mouse embryo using optical coherence tomography
      Neural tube closure is a critical feature of central nervous system morphogenesis during embryonic development. Failure of this process leads to neural tube defects, one of the most common forms of human congenital defects. Although molecular and genetic studies in model organisms have provided insights into the genes and proteins that are required for normal neural tube development, complications associated with live imaging of neural tube closure in mammals limit ...
