    2. State-of-the-art retinal optical coherence tomography.

      OCT functions as a type of optical biopsy, providing information on retinal pathology in situ and in real time, with resolutions approaching that of excisional biopsy and histopathology. The development of ultrabroad-bandwidth and tunable light sources, as well as high-speed Fourier detection techniques, has enabled a significant improvement in ophthalmic optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging performance. Three-dimensional, ultrahigh-resolution OCT (UHR OCT) can provide information on intraretinal morphology that is not ...

    3. Photonic device fabrication in glass by use of nonlinear materials processing with a femtosecond laser oscillator.

      Single-mode X couplers and three-dimensional waveguides are fabricated in transparent glasses by use of an unamplified femtosecond laser generating energies of up to 100 nJ. Changing fabrication parameters such as power and scanning speed permits creation of waveguides with a wide range of structures and refractive-index difference. Optical coherence tomography shows large refractive-index changes of up to ~10(-2) in the waveguides; these changes are consistent with guided mode analysis ...

    4. In vivo ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography.

      Ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) by use of state of the art broad-bandwidth femtosecond laser technology is demonstrated and applied to in vivo subcellular imaging. Imaging is performed with a Kerr-lens mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser with double-chirped mirrors that emits sub-two-cycle pulses with bandwidths of up to 350 nm, centered at 800 nm. Longitudinal resolutions of ~1mum and transverse resolution of 3mum, with a 110-dB dynamic range, are achieved in ...

    7. High-resolution imaging of progressive articular cartilage degeneration

      High-resolution imaging of progressive articular cartilage degeneration
      The objective of this study was to develop and verify a new technique for monitoring the progression of osteoarthritis (OA) by combining a rat model with the imaging modality optical coherence tomography (OCT). Time-sequential, in vivo, OCT imaging was performed on the left femoral condyles of 12 Wistar rats following sodium-iodoacetic acid-induced OA progression. The right femoral condyles (untreated) were also imaged and served as controls. Imaging was performed on ...

    8. Enhanced visualization of retinal pathologies with ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (Thesis)

      Enhanced visualization of retinal pathologies with ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Current clinical practice calls for the development of techniques to diagnose diseases in its early stages, when treatment is most effective and significant irreversible damage can either be prevented or delayed. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an emerging medical diagnostic technology being investigated for applications in a number of medical fields including ophthalmology, cardiology, and gastroenterology. OCT is analogous to ultrasound except that it uses light waves rather than sound ...

    9. Ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography for the detection of early stage neoplastic pathologies (Thesis)

      Ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography for the detection of early stage neoplastic pathologies (Thesis)
      Identification of changes associated with early stage disease remains a critical objective of clinical detection and treatment. Effective screening and detection is important for improving outcome because advanced disease, such as metastatic cancer, can be difficult to impossible to cure. Many existing diagnostic modalities, including x-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, and endoscopy do not have sufficient resolution to detect changes in architectural morphology associated with early neoplasia and other ...

    10. High-resolution optical coherence tomographic imaging of osteoarthritic cartilage during open knee surgery

      High-resolution optical coherence tomographic imaging of osteoarthritic cartilage during open knee surgery
      Abstract  This study demonstrates the first real-time imaging in vivo of human cartilage in normal and osteoarthritic knee joints at a resolution of micrometers, using optical coherence tomography (OCT). This recently developed high-resolution imaging technology is analogous to B-mode ultrasound except that it uses infrared light rather than sound. Real-time imaging with 11-μm resolution at four frames per second was performed on six patients using a portable OCT system with ...
