    2. Tissue-mimicking bladder wall phantoms for evaluating acoustic radiation force-optical coherence elastography systems

      Tissue-mimicking bladder wall phantoms for evaluating acoustic radiation force-optical coherence elastography systems
      Purpose: Acoustic radiation force–optical coherence elastography (ARF-OCE) systems are novel imaging systems that have the potential to simultaneously quantify and characterize the optical and mechanical properties of in vivo tissues. This article presents the construction of bladder wall phantoms for use in ARF-OCE systems. Mechanical, acoustic, and optical properties are reported and compared to published values for the urinary bladder. Methods: The phantom consisted of 0.2000±0.0089 ...

    4. Computer recognition of cancer in the urinary bladder using optical coherence tomography and texture analysis

      Colleen A. Lingley-Papadopoulos, Murray H. Loew, Michael J. Manyak et al. The vast majority of bladder cancers originate within 600 [mu]m of the tissue surface, making optical coherence tomography (OCT) a potentially powerful tool for recognizing cancers that are not easily visible with current techniques. OCT is a new technology, however, and surgeons are not familiar w ... [J. Biomed. Opt. 13, 024003 (2008)] published Mon Apr 14, 2008.

  2. About Jason M. Zara

    Jason M. Zara

    Jason M. Zara is an Assistant Professor of Engineering and Applied Science, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, George Washington University.  My primary areas of research interest are the applications of Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) actuators in medicine and high-resolution medical imaging. My current work includes the development of new instrumentation for high frequency ultrasound and infrared optical coherence tomography. I am interested in all areas of medical imaging, primarily focusing on the development of new imaging instrumentation. My laboratory is set up for ultrasound and optical imaging system development and the testing and evaluation of new medical instrumentation.
