    2. Comprehensive esophageal microscopy by using optical frequency–domain imaging (with video)

      Comprehensive esophageal microscopy by using optical frequency–domain imaging (with video)
      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used for high-resolution endoscopic imaging and diagnosis of specialized intestinal metaplasia, dysplasia, and intramucosal carcinoma of the esophagus. However, the relatively slow image-acquisition rate of the present OCT systems inhibits wide-field imaging and limits the clinical utility of OCT for diagnostic imaging in patients with Barrett's esophagus. Objective This study describes a new optical imaging technology, optical frequency-domain imaging (OFDI), derived from ...

    3. High-speed imaging of human retina in vivo with swept-source optical coherence tomography

      We present the first demonstration of human retinal imaging in vivo using optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) in the 800-nm range. With 460-μW incident power on the eye, the sensitivity is 91 dB at maximum and >85 dB over 2-mm depth range. The axial resolution is 13 μm in air. We acquired images of retina at 43,200 depth profiles per second and a continuous acquisition speed of 84 frames ...

    4. Systems and methods for imaging a sample

      A system and method for imaging a sample are provided. In particular, a first combination of light and a second combination of light are received, in which a first cross correlation function is associated with the first combination and a second cross correlation function is associated with the second combination. Each of the first and the second combinations includes a first portion of light which is received from a reference ...

    5. Comprehensive volumetric optical microscopy in vivo

      Comprehensive volumetric optical microscopy in vivo
      Comprehensive volumetric microscopy of epithelial, mucosal and endothelial tissues in living human patients would have a profound impact in medicine by enabling diagnostic imaging at the cellular level over large surface areas. Considering the vast area of these tissues with respect to the desired sampling interval, achieving this goal requires rapid sampling. Although noninvasive diagnostic technologies are preferred, many applications could be served by minimally invasive instruments capable of accessing ...

    6. Optical frequency domain imaging of human retina and choroid (Thesis)

      Optical frequency domain imaging of human retina and choroid (Thesis)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a practical noninvasive technology for imaging the microstructure of the human eye in vivo. Using optical interferometry to spatially-resolve backreflections from within tissue, this high-resolution technique provides cross-sectional images of the anterior and posterior eye segments that had previously only been possible with histology. Current commercially-available OCT systems suffer limitations in speed and sensitivity, preventing them from effective screening of the retina and ...

    8. Elastography of coronary vessels using optical coherence tomography (Thesis)

      Elastography of coronary vessels using optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease characterized by an accumulation of lipid and fibrous tissue in the arterial wall. Postmortem studies have characterized rupture-prone atherosclerotic plaques by the presence of a large lipid=rich core covered by a thin fibrous cap. Studies employing finite element analysis (FEA) based on ex vivo plaque geometry have found that most plaques rupture at sites of high circumferential stress, thus diagnosis of plaque vulnerability may ...

    9. Confocal heterodyne interference microscopy

      An improved confocal microscope system is provided which images sections of tissue utilizing heterodyne detection. The system has a synthesized light source for producing a single beam of light of multiple, different wavelengths using multiple laser sources. The beam from the synthesized light source is split into an imaging beam and a reference beam. The phase of the reference beam is then modulated, while confocal optics scan and focus the ...

    10. System for imaging mechanically stabilized tissue

      A system is provided having a clamping apparatus with first and second members, which are spaced apart from each other. An attachment mechanism is connected to the first member for attaching the apparatus to a confocal imaging system. This attachment mechanism has a surface with a window facing the tissue to be examined. Opposing this surface is a third member connected to the second member. A clamping mechanism includes the ...
