    2. 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 ...

    3. 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

    4. Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography Is a New Technique for Imaging Skin Around Lower Extremity Wounds

      Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography Is a New Technique for Imaging Skin Around Lower Extremity Wounds
      Chronic wounds such as venous leg ulcers invariably heal slowly and recur. In the case of venous leg ulcers, poor healing of chronic wounds is variously attributed to ambulatory hypertension, impaired perfusion and diffusion, presence of chronic inflammation at wound sites, lipodermatosclerosis, and senescence. The aim of this study was to investigate whether a new technique, optical coherence tomography (OCT), which permits imaging of blood capillaries in the peri-wound skin ...

    6. The vascular morphology of melanoma is related to Breslow index: an in vivo study with dynamic optical coherence tomography

      The vascular morphology of melanoma is related to Breslow index: an in vivo study with dynamic optical coherence tomography
      Background Malignant melanoma is an aggressive skin cancer, which can lead to metastasis development. Vascularization enhancement is fundamental for tumor growth, worsening the prognosis. Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography (D‐OCT) enables the in vivo evaluation of vascular patterns in skin lesions. Objective In vivo evaluation of the melanoma vessel morphology by means of D‐OCT and correlation with Breslow index. Methods Retrospective analysis of histologically proven melanomas, evaluated by D ...

    7. Dynamic optical coherence tomography of histamine induced wheals

      Dynamic optical coherence tomography of histamine induced wheals
      Background Dynamic optical coherence tomography (D‐OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technique providing images of the skin and detecting movement in the tissue ie, measuring blood flow. The attenuation coefficient describes light absorption and scattering abilities of the tissue, while the dynamic signal provides a quantitative measure of the blood flow. Aim The study objective is to describe the dynamic changes of the skin and skin vessels during histamine release ...

    8. Advances in optical coherence tomography in dermatology—a review

      Advances in optical coherence tomography in dermatology—a review
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was introduced as an imaging system, but like ultrasonography, other measures, such as blood perfusion and polarization of light, have enabled the technology to approach clinical utility. This review aims at providing an overview of the advances in clinical research based on the improving technical aspects. OCT provides cross-sectional and en face images down to skin depths of 0.4 to 2.00 mm with optical ...

    9. Angiographic optical coherence tomography imaging of hemangiomas and port wine birthmarks

      Angiographic optical coherence tomography imaging of hemangiomas and port wine birthmarks
      Objectives A current therapeutic challenge of vascular lesions is that they do not always respond effectively to laser treatment. Information on targeted vessels could potentially be used to guide laser treatments. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a useful tool for the non‐invasive imaging of tissues, including skin hemangiomas and port wine birthmarks. Dynamic OCT is able to rapidly characterize cutaneous blood vessels. The primary goal of this study was ...

  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.
