    2. Assessing the Outcomes of Focused Heating of the Skin by a Long-Pulsed 1064 nm Laser with an Integrated Scanner, Infrared Thermal Guidance, and Optical Coherence Tomography

      Assessing the Outcomes of Focused Heating of the Skin by a Long-Pulsed 1064 nm Laser with an Integrated Scanner, Infrared Thermal Guidance, and Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background and Objective Long‐term benefits can be predicted by the incorporation of more intelligent systems in lasers and other devices. Such systems can produce more reliable zones of thermal injury when used in association with non‐invasive monitoring and precise laser energy delivery. The more classical endpoint of tumor destruction with radiofrequency or long‐pulsed (LP) 1064nm laser is the non‐specific appearance of tissue graying and tissue contraction ...

    3. Processing optical coherence tomography scans

      Processing optical coherence tomography scans
      A method of processing optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans through a subject's skin, the method comprising: receiving a plurality of scans through the subject's skin, the scans representing an OCT signal in slices through the user's skin at different times; comparing the scans to determine time-varying regions in the scans; determining a depth-distribution of the time varying regions.

    4. Compensating optical coherence tomography scans

      Compensating optical coherence tomography scans
      A method of processing optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans, comprising: receiving OCT data comprising an OCT signal indicative of the level of scattering in a sample, the OCT data including the OCT signal for at least one scan through the sample, with the OCT signal having been measured at varying depth and position through the sample in each scan; processing the OCT data for each scan with depth to produce ...

    5. Dynamic optical coherence tomography shows alterations of blood vessels characteristic for malignant melanoma

      Dynamic optical coherence tomography shows alterations of blood vessels characteristic for malignant melanoma
      Background Dynamic optical coherence tomography (D‐OCT) allows in vivo visualization of blood vessels in the skin and in malignant tumors. Vessel patterns in malignant melanoma may be associated with tumor stage. Objective The aim of this study was to describe blood vessel patterns in melanomas and to correlate them with stage. Methods 159 malignant melanomas were assessed in a multicenter study. Every tumor was imaged using D‐OCT prior ...

    6. Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography of Cutaneous Blood Vessels in Melasma and Vessel Response to Oral Tranexamic Acid

      Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography of Cutaneous Blood Vessels in Melasma and Vessel Response to Oral Tranexamic Acid
      Background and objectives: Melasma may be related to aberrant blood vessels, but there has been no report on the utility of dynamic optical coherence tomography (D-OCT) in studying vessel characteristics in melasma. We studied the characteristics of cutaneous blood vessels in melasma and the effects of oral tranexamic acid (TXA) with D-OCT. Study design/materials and methods: Six patients with moderate to severe melasma had a D-OCT scanning of the ...

    7. Morphometric Optical Imaging of Microporated Nail Tissue: An Investigation of Intermethod Agreement, Reliability, and Technical Limitations

      Morphometric Optical Imaging of Microporated Nail Tissue: An Investigation of Intermethod Agreement, Reliability, and Technical Limitations
      Background and Objectives While optical imaging is a useful technique to quantitate morphological differences and treatment effects, comparative investigations of the various techniques are lacking. This study aimed at evaluating intermethod agreement, reliability, and technical limitations of wide‐field microscopy (WFM), reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM), and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for morphometry by assessing fractionally ablated nail tissue. Study Design/Materials and Methods Fifty healthy nail clippings were processed with ...

    8. Processing optical coherency tomography scans

      Processing optical coherency tomography scans
      A method of processing optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans through a subject's skin, the method comprising: receiving at least one OCT scan through the subject's skin, each scan representing an OCT signal in a slice through the subject's skin; processing each OCT scan so as to determine a set of parameters comprising at least a measure of the atrophy of the vascular structure in the epidermis; in ...

    9. OCT Image-Guided Treatment of Scars (Book Chapter)

      OCT Image-Guided Treatment of Scars (Book Chapter)
      Improved scar rehabilitation is achieved with lasers by matching laser settings to heterogeneous thickness of fibrous pathology. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides accurate depth measurement and demonstrates vascularity in scar and healthy tissue noninvasively providing a clinical endpoint for optimally calculating dosimetry. Real-time imaging during treatment allows personalized treatment due to varying collagen densities in cicatricial tissues

  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.

  3. Quotes about Michelson Diagnostics

    1. I found the MedTech Tour Summit extremely useful: the high standard of presenting companies at different stages of their business development provided insights into how I need to position Michelson Diagnostics for an investment. I also made contact with several interested investors and advisors, and discussions are progressing.
