    2. Feature Of The Week 02/15/15: Optical Coherence Tomography Identifies Lower Labial Salivary Gland Surface Density in Cystic Fibrosis

      Feature Of The Week 02/15/15: Optical Coherence Tomography Identifies Lower Labial Salivary Gland Surface Density in Cystic Fibrosis
      Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that affects multiple organs due to the production of abnormally viscous mucus. Recurring pulmonary infections result in build-up of lung damage which leads to death. Intestinal, pancreatic, and hepatobiliary complications also occur, further aggravating the course of the disease. The molecular basis of CF is the dysfunction of the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). CFTR-related disruption of transmembrane ion transport affects the exocrine ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Identifies Lower Labial Salivary Gland Surface Density in Cystic Fibrosis

      Optical Coherence Tomography Identifies Lower Labial Salivary Gland Surface Density in Cystic Fibrosis
      The labial minor salivary glands (LSGs) are easily accessible mucus-secreting structures of the alimentary tract that may provide new information on the basis of gastrointestinal complications of cystic fibrosis (CF). It was shown that they are destructed in the course of cystic fibrosis. We employed wide-field, micrometer resolution in vivo optical coherence tomography to assess the surface density of LSGs in 18 patients with CF and 18 healthy subjects. The ...

    4. Feature Of The Week 11/9/14: Dynamics of a Short Cavity Swept Source OCT Laser

      Feature Of The Week 11/9/14: Dynamics of a Short Cavity Swept Source OCT Laser
      Great advances in OCT speed and sensitivity have been possible due to the introduction of fast frequency swept laser sources. One of the most commonly used swept source devices is a short (~5 cm) cavity Fabry-Perot laser. We present both experimental characterisation and numerical modelling of such an OCT swept source and also analyse the underlying physics to better understand how such sources may be optimised. For the experimental characterisation ...

    5. Dynamics of a short cavity swept source OCT laser

      Dynamics of a short cavity swept source OCT laser
      We investigate the behaviour of a short cavity swept source laser with an intra cavity swept filter both experimentally and theoretically. We characterise the behaviour of the device with real-time intensity measurements using a fast digital oscilloscope, showing several distinct regimes, most notably regions of mode-hopping, frequency sliding mode-locking and chaos. A delay differential equation model is proposed that shows close agreement with the experimental results. The model is also ...

    6. Quantitative assessment of oral mucosa and labial minor salivary glands in patients with Sjögren’s syndrome using swept source OCT

      Quantitative assessment of oral mucosa and labial minor salivary glands in patients with Sjögren’s syndrome using swept source OCT
      Three-dimensional imaging of the mucosa of the lower lip and labial minor salivary glands is demonstrated in vivo using swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) system at 1310 nm with modified interface. Volumetric data sets of the inner surface of the lower lip covering ~230 mm 2 field are obtained from patients with Sjgrens syndrome and a control group. OCT enables high-resolution visualization of mucosal architecture using cross-sectional images as ...

    7. Improved measurement of vibration amplitude in dynamic optical coherence elastography

      Improved measurement of vibration amplitude in dynamic optical coherence elastography
      Optical coherence elastography employs optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure the displacement of tissues under load and, thus, maps the resulting strain into an image, known as an elastogram. We present a new improved method to measure vibration amplitude in dynamic optical coherence elastography. The tissue vibration amplitude caused by sinusoidal loading is measured from the spread of the Doppler spectrum, which is extracted using joint spectral and time domain ...

    8. Fourier domain OCT imaging of American cockroach nervous system

      Fourier domain OCT imaging of American cockroach nervous system
      In this pilot study we demonstrate results of structural Fourier domain OCT imaging of the nervous system of Periplaneta americana L. (American cockroach). The purpose of this research is to develop an OCT apparatus enabling structural imaging of insect neural system. Secondary purpose of the presented research is to develop methods of the sample preparation and handling during the OCT imaging experiments. We have performed imaging in the abdominal nerve ...

    10. Imaging of the lens capsule with an ultrahigh-resolution spectral optical coherence tomography prototype based on a femtosecond laser

      Aim To demonstrate the applicability of ultrahigh-speed, ultrahigh-resolution spectral optical coherence tomography (SOCT) to cross-sectional imaging of the capsular bag in vivo. Methods The ultrahigh-speed and ultrahigh-resolution SOCT prototype was designed and constructed at Nicolaus Copernicus University (Torun, Poland). To obtain an ultrahigh speed up to 100 000 lines/s a new spectrometer with fast CMOS line-scan camera was built. A femtosecond laser with a central wavelength of 780 nm ...
