    2. 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 ...

    3. 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 ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. 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.

    9. Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology

      Dynamic Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) represents a non-invasive imaging technology, which may be applied to the diagnosis of non-melanoma skin cancer and which has recently been shown to improve the diagnostic accuracy of basal cell carcinoma. Technical developments of OCT continue to expand the applicability of OCT for different neoplastic and inflammatory skin diseases. Of these, dynamic OCT (D-OCT) based on speckle variance OCT is of special interest as it allows ...

    11. High-resolution label-free vascular imaging using a commercial, clinically approved dermatological OCT scanner

      High-resolution label-free vascular imaging using a commercial, clinically approved dermatological OCT scanner
      Background and Aim: Recently developed decorrelative techniques such as speckle-variance optical coherence tomography (svOCT) have demonstrated non-invasive depth-resolved imaging of the microcirculation in-vivo. However, bulk tissue motion (BTM) originating from the subject's breathing or heartbeat remains problematic at low imaging speeds, often resulting in full frame decorrelation and a loss of vascular contrast. The aim of this study was to build upon existing svOCT techniques through utilisation of a ...

      Comparison of different optical coherence tomography devices for diagnosis of non-melanoma skin cancer
      Purpose To compare the diagnostic imaging ability of three different optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices in non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Methods Thirty actinic keratoses (AKs) and 27 basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) of 29 patients were examined with three different OCT devices, VivoSight , Callisto and Skintell . Results Complete data sets were available for 16 BCCs and 10 AKs of 18 patients. All OCT devices were able to discriminate BCCs and AKs ...

  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.
