    2. Comparison of Intensity- and Polarization-based Contrast in Amyloid-beta Plaques as Observed by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Comparison of Intensity- and Polarization-based Contrast in Amyloid-beta Plaques as Observed by Optical Coherence Tomography
      One key hallmark of Alzheimers disease (AD) is the accumulation of extracellular amyloid-beta protein in cortical regions of the brain. For a definitive diagnosis of AD, post-mortem histological analysis, including sectioning and staining of different brain regions, is required. Here, we present optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a tissue-preserving imaging modality for the visualization of amyloid-beta plaques and compare their contrast in intensity- and polarization-sensitive (PS) OCT. Human brain samples ...

    7. En face optical coherence tomography: a technology review [Invited]

      En face optical coherence tomography: a technology review [Invited]
      A review on the technological development of en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence microscopy (OCM) is provided. The terminology originally referred to time domain OCT, where the preferential scanning was performed in the en face plane. Potentially the fastest realization of en face image recording is full-field OCT, where the full en face plane is illuminated and recorded simultaneously. The term has nowadays been adopted for high-speed ...

    8. Comparison of Spectralis and Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography for the objective morphometric assessment of the neuroretinal rim width

      Comparison of Spectralis and Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography for the objective morphometric assessment of the neuroretinal rim width
      Purpose The assessment of cup-disc ratio as a surrogate parameter for the neuroretinal rim width (NRW) of the optic nerve is well established, but prone to human error and imprecision. Objective assessment of the NRW is provided by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). This study is the first to systematically compare NRW measurements acquired with the Carl Zeiss Meditech Cirrus HD-OCT 5000 and the Heidelberg Engineering Spectralis SD-OCT. Methods ...

      Depth resolved label-free multimodal optical imaging platform to study morpho-molecular composition of tissue
      Multimodal imaging platforms offer a vast array of tissue information in a single image acquisition by combining complementary imaging techniques. By merging different systems, better tissue characterization can be achieved than is possible by the constituent imaging modalities alone. The combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT) with non-linear optical imaging (NLOI) techniques such as two-photon excited fluorescence (TPEF), second harmonic generation (SHG) and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) provides access ...

    13. Synthetic subaperture-based angle-independent Doppler flow measurements using single-beam line field optical coherence tomography in vivo

      Synthetic subaperture-based angle-independent Doppler flow measurements using single-beam line field optical coherence tomography in vivo
      We demonstrate a synthetic subaperture-based angle-independent Doppler flow calculation, using a line field spectral domain optical coherence tomography system. The high speed of the system features a high phase stability over the volume, which is necessary to apply synthetic subapertures in the aperture plane. Thus, the flow component for each subaperture can be reconstructed in postprocessing. Capillary phantom and in vivo retinal imaging experiments were performed to validate and demonstrate ...
