    3. Optical coherence tomography for margin definition of basal cell carcinoma before micrographic surgery—recommendations regarding the marking and scanning technique

      Optical coherence tomography for margin definition of basal cell carcinoma before micrographic surgery—recommendations regarding the marking and scanning technique
      Background/purpose Mohs Micrographic Surgery (MMS) is the preferred therapeutic treatment for high-risk basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that enables the diagnosis of BCC. We thought to determine the margins of BCCs with OCT, prior to MMS, to reduce the number of surgical steps. Methods Different permanent markers were tested on the skin regarding line width, resistance against disinfection and brightness in ...

    4. Dynamic optical coherence tomography of skin blood vessels – proposed terminology and practical guidelines

      Dynamic optical coherence tomography of skin blood vessels – proposed terminology and practical guidelines
      Background Dynamic optical coherence tomography (D-OCT) has recently been introduced in dermatology. In contrast to Standard OCT imaging, which exclusively relies on the morphological analysis of the tissue, D-OCT allows the in-vivo visualisation of blood flow. Preliminary D-OCT data showed differences in the vascularisation of nevus to melanoma transition, suggesting that this technology may help to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions. Objective Several factors may influence the quality of ...

      Rapid ex vivo examination of Mohs specimens using optical coherence tomography
      Background Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is an effective treatment for certain non-melanoma skin cancers. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a biomedical imaging modality that permits high-resolution imaging of the epidermis and dermis with the potential to detect both healthy tissue and tumour. OCT may also provide a means of detecting and differentiating between the various histological subtypes of basal cell carcinomas (BCC) in vivo . Objective : The aim of this prospective ...

      Adoption Depends on Meeting Clinical Needs
      Every year, I am amazed and impressed by the number and variety of presentations at conferences in the field of biophotonics . We are blessed by the seemingly endless ways to manipulate and measure light, relatively inexpensively, in our pursuit of powerful new ways to understand, diagnose and treat disease. Much human ingenuity has been applied to overcoming difficult technical problems and pushing back the bounds of our knowledge. But then ...

    8. In vivo microvascular imaging of cutaneous actinic keratosis, Bowen's disease and squamous cell carcinoma using Dynamic optical coherence tomography

      In vivo microvascular imaging of cutaneous actinic keratosis, Bowen's disease and squamous cell carcinoma using Dynamic optical coherence tomography
      Background A clear distinction between actinic keratosis (AK), Bowen's disease (BD) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cannot reliably be made by clinical and dermoscopic evaluation alone. Dynamic optical coherence tomography (D-OCT) is a novel angiographic variant of OCT that allows for non-invasive, in vivo evaluation of the cutaneous microvascular morphology. Objective To investigate the microvascular structures of AK, BD and invasive SCC using D-OCT in order to gain insights ...

      Vascular Features of Nail Psoriasis Using Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background: Nail psoriasis is a painful and disfiguring nail disease that often leads to invasive biopsies. Dermoscopy of the hyponychium can be useful in the diagnosis showing twisted coiled vessels. Structural features of nail psoriasis have been described with optical coherence tomography (OCT). Objectives: To investigate vascular features of nail psoriasis using dynamic OCT. Methods: This was an observational, prospective, controlled study in which psoriasis patients with psoriatic nail changes ...

      Optical Coherence Tomography for Skin Cancer
      Skin cancer is the most common malignancy worldwide, and non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) in particular, including basal cell carcinomas (BCC) and squamous cell carcinomas, constitute around 80 percent of all skin cancers. It is estimated that approximately 3.5 million new cases of NMSC occur every year in the U.S., exceeding that of all other cancers combined. Despite the high prevalence of NMSC, they can be effectively treated and ...

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...

  2. About Michelson Diagnostics

    Michelson Diagnostics

    Michelson Diagnostics.  Microscopy Systems.  Michelson Diagnostics Ltd (MDL) is a healthcare company providing a live view of cancerous tissue.  The company was formed in March 2006 to develop a hand-held cancer scanner based on an imaging technology called optical coherence tomography (OCT).   The patented device will give clinicians and researchers a live view of sub-surface tissue structures at near-cellular resolution - high enough to see the emergence and growth of cancer. It shows tissue as deep as 2 mm and offers much higher image resolution than ultrasound or MRI.  The non-invasive cancer scan reduces the need for painful and costly biopsies and provides patients and doctors with immediate results. Whole organs can be systematically scanned for abnormalities.
