    2. Methods, systems, arrangements and computer-accessible medium for providing micro-optical coherence tomography procedures

      Methods, systems, arrangements and computer-accessible medium for providing micro-optical coherence tomography procedures
      Exemplary apparatus and method can be provided for obtaining data regarding a plurality of samples. For example, using at least one arrangement, it is possible to receive interferometric information that is based on radiations provided from a reference and the samples that are provided in respective chambers. Alternatively and/or in addition, based on the interferometric information, it is possible to discriminate between agents to identify a particular agent that ...

    3. Angiographic features of patients with coronary plaque erosion

      Angiographic features of patients with coronary plaque erosion
      Background Although an in vivo diagnosis of coronary plaque erosion has become possible by optical coherence tomography (OCT), angiographic characteristics of erosion have not been studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the angiographic features of plaque erosion in patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS). Methods Patients with NSTE-ACS who underwent OCT of the culprit lesion were collected at 11 institutions from 6 countries. Patients were ...

    4. Coronary Atherosclerotic Phenotype and Plaque Healing in Patients With Recurrent Acute Coronary Syndromes Compared With Patients With Long-term Clinical Stability An In Vivo Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Coronary Atherosclerotic Phenotype and Plaque Healing in Patients With Recurrent Acute Coronary Syndromes Compared With Patients With Long-term Clinical Stability An In Vivo Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Importance At one end of the coronary artery disease (CAD) spectrum, there are patients with multiple recurrent acute coronary syndromes (rACS), and at the other end there are those with long-standing clinical stability. Predicting the natural history of these patients is challenging because unstable plaques often heal without resulting in ACS. Objective To assess in vivo the coronary atherosclerotic phenotype as well as the prevalence and characteristics of healed coronary ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography-guided laser marking with tethered capsule endomicroscopy in unsedated patients

      Optical coherence tomography-guided laser marking with tethered capsule endomicroscopy in unsedated patients
      Tethered capsule endomicroscopy (TCE) is an emerging screening technology that comprehensively obtains microstructural OCT images of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in unsedated patients. To advance clinical adoption of this imaging technique, it will be important to validate TCE images with co-localized histology, the current diagnostic gold standard. One method for co-localizing OCT images with histology is image-targeted laser marking, which has previously been implemented using a driveshaft-based, balloon OCT catheter ...

    8. Pilot Study for OCT Guided In Vivo Laser Capture Microdissection for Assessing the Prognosis of Barrett's Esophagus

      Pilot Study for OCT Guided In Vivo Laser Capture Microdissection for Assessing the Prognosis of Barrett's Esophagus
      The investigators have developed a new technology, termed in-vivo laser capture microdissection (IVLCM), that addresses the limitations of endoscopic biopsy for screening for BE and provides targeted genomic profiling of aberrant tissue for more precise prediction of EAC risk. The device is a tethered capsule endomicroscope (TCE) that implements optical coherence tomography (OCT) to grab 10-mm-resolution, cross-sectional microscopic images of the entire esophagus after the capsule is swallowed. This OCT-based ...

    10. Measuring Barrett’s Epithelial Thickness with Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy as a Biomarker to Guide Treatment

      Measuring Barrett’s Epithelial Thickness with Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy as a Biomarker to Guide Treatment
      Background Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment outcomes vary for unknown reasons. One hypothesis is that variations in Barretts epithelial thickness (BET) are associated with reduced RFA efficacy for thicker BET and strictures for thinner BET. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is an imaging modality that acquires high-resolution, depth-resolved images of BE. However, the attenuation of light by tissue and the lack of layering in Barretts tissue challenge BET measurements and the study ...

    11. Extended Coherence Length and Depth Ranging Using a Fourier-Domain Mode-Locked Frequency Comb and Circular Interferometric Ranging

      Extended Coherence Length and Depth Ranging Using a Fourier-Domain Mode-Locked Frequency Comb and Circular Interferometric Ranging
      Fourier-domain mode locking has been a popular laser design for high-speed optical-frequency-domain imaging (OFDI), but achieving long coherence lengths, and therefore imaging range, has been challenging. The narrow linewidth of a Fourier-domain mode-locked (FDML) frequency-comb (FC) laser could provide an attractive platform for high-speed as well as long-range OFDI. Unfortunately, aliasing artifacts arising from signals beyond the principal measurement depth of the free spectral range have prohibited the use of ...
