    4. Birefringence microscopy platform for assessing airway smooth muscle structure and function in vivo

      Birefringence microscopy platform for assessing airway smooth muscle structure and function in vivo
      The inability to visualize airway smooth muscle (ASM) cells in vivo is a major obstacle in understanding their role in normal physiology and diseases. At present, there is no imaging modality available to assess ASM in vivo. Confocal endomicroscopy lacks the penetration depth and field of view, and conventional optical coherence tomography (OCT) does not have sufficient contrast to differentiate ASM from surrounding tissues. We have developed a birefringence microscopy ...

    6. Multi-laboratory inter-institute reproducibility study of IVOCT and IVUS assessments using published consensus document definitions

      Multi-laboratory inter-institute reproducibility study of IVOCT and IVUS assessments using published consensus document definitions
      Aims The aim of this study was to investigate the reproducibility of intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) assessments, including a comparison to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). Intra-observer and inter-observer variabilities of IVOCT have been previously described, whereas inter-institute reliability in multiple laboratories has never been systematically studied. Methods and results In 2 independent laboratories with intravascular imaging expertise, 100 randomized matched data sets of IVOCT and IVUS images were analysed by ...

    7. Optimizing flushing parameters in intracoronary optical coherence tomography: an in vivo swine study

      Optimizing flushing parameters in intracoronary optical coherence tomography: an in vivo swine study
      Intracoronary optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI), requires the displacement of blood for clear visualization of the artery wall. Radiographic contrast agents are highly effective at displacing blood however, may increase the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy. Flushing media viscosity, flow rate, and flush duration influence the efficiency of blood displacement necessary for obtaining diagnostic quality OFDI images. The aim of this work was to determine the optimal flushing parameters necessary to ...

    8. Diagnosing Lung Carcinomas with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Diagnosing Lung Carcinomas with Optical Coherence Tomography
      Rationale: Lung carcinoma diagnosis on tissue biopsy can be challenging due to insufficient tumor and lack of architectural information. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution imaging modality that visualizes tissue microarchitecture in volumes orders of magnitude larger than biopsy. It has been proposed that OCT could potentially replace tissue biopsy. Objectives: We aim to determine if OCT could replace histology in diagnosing lung carcinomas . We develop and validate OCT ...

      Esophageal-guided biopsy with volumetric laser endomicroscopy and laser cautery marking: a pilot clinical study
      Background Biopsy surveillance protocols for the assessment of Barrett's esophagus can be subject to sampling errors, resulting in diagnostic uncertainty. Optical coherence tomography is a cross-sectional imaging technique that can be used to conduct volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) of the entire distal esophagus. We have developed a biopsy guidance platform that places endoscopically visible marks at VLE-determined biopsy sites. Objective The objective of this study was to demonstrate in ...
