    2. Optical Microscopy Systems for the Detection of Unlabeled Nanoparticles

      Optical Microscopy Systems for the Detection of Unlabeled Nanoparticles
      Label-free detection of nanoparticles is essential for a thorough evaluation of their cellular effects. In particular, nanoparticles intended for medical applications must be carefully analyzed in terms of their interactions with cells, tissues, and organs. Since the labeling causes a strong change in the physicochemical properties and thus also alters the interactions of the particles with the surrounding tissue, the use of fluorescently labeled particles is inadequate to characterize the ...

    3. Assessment of sex- and age-dependency of risk factors for intimal hyperplasia in heart transplant patients using the high resolution of optical coherence tomography

      Assessment of sex- and age-dependency of risk factors for intimal hyperplasia in heart transplant patients using the high resolution of optical coherence tomography
      Intimal hyperplasia in cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAVIH) is limiting survival in pediatric and adult patients after heart transplantation (HTx). Analysis of risk factors for CAVIH using the high resolution of intracoronary optical coherence tomography (OCT) is scarce, particularly in children, and recommendations for CAV prevention are largely based on data obtained in adults. Whether the predictive value of risk factors is age- or sex-dependent is unknown.

    4. Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography: A New Tool for the Differentiation between Nevi and Melanomas?

      Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography: A New Tool for the Differentiation between Nevi and Melanomas?
      Until now, the clinical differentiation between a nevus and a melanoma is still challenging in some cases. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is a new tool with the aim to change that. The aim of the study was to evaluate LC-OCT for the discrimination between nevi and melanomas. A total of 84 melanocytic lesions were examined with LC-OCT and 36 were also imaged with RCM. The observers recorded the ...

    5. Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography Increases the Diagnostic Accuracy and Confidence for Basal Cell Carcinoma in Equivocal Lesions: A Prospective Study

      Line-Field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography Increases the Diagnostic Accuracy and Confidence for Basal Cell Carcinoma in Equivocal Lesions: A Prospective Study
      Diagnosing clinically unclear basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) can be challenging. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT) is able to display morphological features of BCC subtypes with good histological correlation. The aim of this study was to investigate the accuracy of LC-OCT in diagnosing clinically unsure cases of BCC compared to dermoscopy alone and in distinguishing between superficial BCCs and other BCC subtypes. Moreover, we addressed pitfalls in false positive cases ...

    6. Analysis of Fibrotic Plaques in Angiographic Manifest Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy in Long-term Heart Transplanted Patients Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Analysis of Fibrotic Plaques in Angiographic Manifest Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy in Long-term Heart Transplanted Patients Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background: The development and progression of cardiac allograft vasculopathy documented by coronary angiography (CAV angio ) after heart transplantation (HTx) has prognostic relevance. Yet there are limited data regarding the role of concomitant intracoronary imaging in the presence CAV angio . In particular, atherosclerotic plaques might represent a potential target for prevention, but their impact on stenosis is understudied. Methods: We used high-resolution intracoronary optical coherence tomography (OCT) to quantify and compare ...

      Advances in Imaging of Subbasal Corneal Nerves With Micro–Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To investigate the most peripheral corneal nerve plexus using high-resolution micro-optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and to assess OCT's clinical potential as a screening tool for corneal and systemic diseases. Methods: An experimental high-resolution (1.5 1.5 1 m) OCT setup was applied for three-dimensional imaging of the subbasal nerve plexus in nonhuman primates (NHPs) and swine within 3 hours postmortem. Morphologic features of subbasal nerves in ...

    8. In vivo examination of healthy human skin after short-time treatment with moisturizers using confocal Raman spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography: Preliminary observations

      In vivo examination of healthy human skin after short-time treatment with moisturizers using confocal Raman spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography: Preliminary observations
      Skin is our barrier against environmental damage. Moisturizers are widely used to increase hydration and barrier integrity of the skin; however, there are contrasting observations on their in vivo effects in real-life settings. In cosmetic studies, corneometers and tewameters are traditionally used to assess skin hydration. In this study, two novel noninvasive diagnostic techniques, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal Raman spectroscopy, were used to analyze stratum corneum and epidermal ...

      Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography in Neuromyelitis Optica
      Background and objectives: To determine optic nerve and retinal damage in aquaporin-4 antibody (AQP4-IgG)-seropositive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) in a large international cohort after previous studies have been limited by small and heterogeneous cohorts. Methods: The cross-sectional Collaborative Retrospective Study on retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) in neuromyelitis optica collected retrospective data from 22 centers. Of 653 screened participants, we included 283 AQP4-IgG-seropositive patients with NMOSD and 72 ...

      Reliability of Corneal, Epithelial, and Stromal Thickness Mapping for a 9-mm Zone Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To evaluate the reliability of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT; RTVue XR; Optovue, Inc., Fremont, CA, USA) for thickness mapping of the entire cornea (CT), corneal epithelium (ET). and corneal stroma (ST) over a 9-mm zone in healthy eyes. We sought to develop reference values for different age groups and elucidate potential sex- and age-dependent characteristics of corneal sublayer pachymetry maps. Methods: Three consecutive SD-OCT scans were obtained in ...

      Spectral domain optical coherence tomography-based retinochoroidal cystine crystal score: a window into infantile nephropathic cystinosis
      PRCIS: Cystinosis is a lysosomal storage disease leading to an accumulation of cystine crystals in several organs. We aim to comprehensively describe chorioretinal cystine crystals via spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and elaborate a new biomarker for systemic disease control. Background/aims: Cystinosis is a rare lysosomal storage disease leading to an accumulation of cystine crystals in several organs. This study aims to describe the deposition of retinochoroidal crystals ...

    12. Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography for the in-vivo real-time diagnosis of different stages of keratinocyte skin cancer: a preliminary study

      Line-field confocal optical coherence tomography for the in-vivo real-time diagnosis of different stages of keratinocyte skin cancer: a preliminary study
      Background: The treatment of keratinocyte cancers (KC) strictly depends on their differentiation and invasiveness. Non-invasive diagnostic techniques can support the diagnosis in real-time, avoiding unnecessary biopsies. This study aimed to preliminarily define main imaging criteria and histological correlations of actinic keratosis (AK), Bowen's disease (BD) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) using the novel device line-field confocal optical coherence tomography (LC-OCT). Methods: Dermoscopy and LC-OCT images of 73 histopathologically confirmed ...
