    2. Cervical Epithelial Brightness by Optical Coherence Tomography Can Determine Histological Grades of Cervical Neoplasia

      Cervical Epithelial Brightness by Optical Coherence Tomography Can Determine Histological Grades of Cervical Neoplasia
      Objective: The study aimed to determine if the difference in cervical epithelium brightness, as measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT), has potential as a distinguishing characteristic of normal, low-grade, high-grade (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2+), and cancer histological findings. Materials and Methods: Information from 476 women was available for analysis. Demographic information was collected through in-person interview. All participants were human papillomavirus positive and/or had abnormal cytological finding and underwent ...

    4. Diagnostic efficacy of computer extracted image features in optical coherence tomography of the precancerous cervix

      Diagnostic efficacy of computer extracted image features in optical coherence tomography of the precancerous cervix
      Purpose: To determine the diagnostic efficacy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to identify cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher by computer-aided diagnosis (CADx). Methods: OCT has been investigated as a screening/diagnostic tool in the management of preinvasive and early invasive cancers of the uterine cervix. In this study, an automated algorithm was developed to extract OCT image features and identify CIN 2 or higher. First, the cervical ...

    5. Study of the Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to Unaided Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid for the Diagnosis of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix

      Study of the Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography as an Adjunct to Unaided Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid for the Diagnosis of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix
      Objectives: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an adjunct to unaided visual inspection using acetic acid (VIA) in the detection of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 2 (CIN 2) in a real-time clinical evaluation. Background: This clinical study was a prospective cross-sectional comparative trial that screened 1000 patients (aged 30-50 years) in a low-resource setting. Women with abnormal cervical cytology or positive human papillomavirus (HPV) tests ...

    6. Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography in the Management of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix

      Diagnostic Efficacy of Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography in the Management of Preinvasive and Invasive Neoplasia of the Uterine Cervix
      Objective: Determine the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an adjunct to colposcopy in the detection of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher in a real-time clinical evaluation.Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) uses infrared light similar to ultrasound pulse-echo imaging. Image resolution is optimal in the 1-to-3-mm range. This study is the third in our series of OCT investigations and our first real-time clinical ...
