    2. 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 ...

    3. Feature Of The Week 2/27/11: Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic, and Imlaux Corporation Investigate Computer-Aided Diagnosis of Precancerous Cervix Tissue using OCT.

      Feature Of The Week 2/27/11: Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic, and Imlaux Corporation Investigate Computer-Aided Diagnosis of Precancerous Cervix Tissue using OCT.
      Feature Of The Week 2/27/11: Researchers at Case Western Reserve University have a long history of innovation in technology and medical applications of optical coherence tomography.  Below is a summary of some of their recent work on computer-aided diagnosis of the precancerous cervix using OCT.   OCT has been investigated as a screening/diagnostic tool in the management of pre-invasive and early invasive cancers. The Biophotonics Imaging Lab at ...

    4. Diagnostic efficacy of computer extracted image features in optical coherence tomography of the precancerous cervix

      Diagnostic efficacy of computer extracted image features in optical coherence tomography of the precancerous cervix
      Purpose: To determine the diagnostic efficacy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to identify cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher by computer-aided diagnosis (CADx). Methods: OCT has been investigated as a screening/diagnostic tool in the management of preinvasive and early invasive cancers of the uterine cervix. In this study, an automated algorithm was developed to extract OCT image features and identify CIN 2 or higher. First, the cervical ...

    5. 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 ...

    6. Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography in the Management of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix

      Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography in the Management of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix
      Objective: Determine the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an adjunct to colposcopy in the detection of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher in a real-time clinical evaluation.Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) uses infrared light similar to ultrasound pulse-echo imaging. Image resolution is optimal in the 1-to-3-mm range. This study is the third in our series of OCT investigations and our first real-time clinical ...

    7. Imalux® Corporation and Preventive Oncology International®, Inc. Differentiate Grades of Pre-Invasive Cervical Dysplasia with Niris Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging System

      Imalux® Corporation and Preventive Oncology International®, Inc. Differentiate Grades of Pre-Invasive Cervical Dysplasia with Niris Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging System
      Imalux Corporation and Preventive Oncology International, Inc. (POI) conducted two studies to determine the diagnostic efficacy of “real time” Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). The first study was held in December 2007 and the second in April 2008. Both IRB-approved studies took place in China in partnership with the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital and the Renmin Hospital in Buyi-Miao Autonomous District of Guizhou Province. Two thousand (2000) women participated in the ...
