    2. Rapid ex vivo examination of Mohs specimens using optical coherence tomography

      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 ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. Vascular Features of Nail Psoriasis Using Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography

      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 ...

    6. Optical Coherence Tomography for Skin Cancer

      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 ...

    7. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      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 ...

    8. In vivo measurement of skin surface strain and sub-surface layer deformation induced by natural tissue stretching

      In vivo measurement of skin surface strain and sub-surface layer deformation induced by natural tissue stretching
      Stratum corneum and epidermal layers change in terms of thickness and roughness with gender, age and anatomical site. Knowledge of the mechanical and tribological properties of skin associated with these structural changes are needed to aid in the design of exoskeletons, prostheses, orthotics, body mounted sensors used for kinematics measurements and in optimum use of wearable on-body devices. In this case study, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and digital image correlation ...

    9. New laser treatment could hold key to less-invasive skin cancer treatment

      New laser treatment could hold key to less-invasive skin cancer treatment
      Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer in the United States, with more than four million cases are diagnosed every year. Until now, surgery has been the standard treatment, but a new non-invasive option is helping cancer patients get rid of the disease. Will Leggett had basal cell carcinoma which his doctor was able to diagnose and treat using the new technique. Legett was scheduled for ...

    10. Validation of Dynamic optical coherence tomography for non-invasive, in vivo microcirculation imaging of the skin

      Validation of Dynamic optical coherence tomography for non-invasive, in vivo microcirculation imaging of the skin
      Objectives Dynamic optical coherence tomography (D-OCT) is anangiographic variation of OCT that non-invasively provides images of the in vivo microvasculature of the skin by combining conventional OCT images with flow data. The objective of this study was to investigate and report on the D-OCT technique for imaging of the vascular networks in skin as well as to validate the method by comparing the results against already accepted blood flow measuring ...

      OCT Laser Device Allows Visualization of Skin Without Biopsy
      The annual incidence of skin cancer is more than breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer combined. Of the 7 most common skin cancers in the US melanoma is the only one whose incidence is increasing. The highest risk group for skin cancer are fair skin, adults with a history of sun exposure.

  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
