    2. Feature Of The Week 9/23/12: MGH Researchers Demonstrate Flexible Transbronchial OCT Imaging Needles for Biopsy Guidance

      Feature Of The Week 9/23/12: MGH Researchers Demonstrate Flexible Transbronchial OCT Imaging Needles for Biopsy Guidance
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems routinely use single-mode optical fibers to transfer light to and from biological samples. The tiny cross section, low-cost, and flexibility of single-mode optical fibers have proven to be a powerful attribute that allows for a wide variety optical coherence tomography (OCT) probes to be constructed including ultra small catheters, guidewires, and endoscope to get light to and from hard to reach places in the human ...

      Flexible transbronchial optical frequency domain imaging smart needle for biopsy guidance
      Transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is a procedure routinely performed to diagnose peripheral pulmonary lesions. However, TBNA is associated with a low diagnostic yield due to inappropriate needle placement. We have developed a flexible transbronchial optical frequency domain imaging (TB-OFDI) catheter that functions as a smart needle to confirm the needle placement within the target lesion prior to biopsy. The TB-OFDI smart needle consists of a flexible and removable OFDI catheter ...

  2. About Khay Ming Tan

    Khay Ming (Eddie) Tan. Dr. Tan received his PhD in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2007. The focus of his PhD involved working on long period fiber grating and fiber Bragg gratings for sensors applications. He is currently doing his post-doctorate training in the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, where he researches on applying photonics in biomedical applications such as Optical Coherence Tomography and Raman Spectroscopy.
