    2. An averaged intensity difference detection algorithm for identification of human gingival sulcus in optical coherence tomography images

      An averaged intensity difference detection algorithm for identification of human gingival sulcus in optical coherence tomography images
      In the past decade, there has been an increase in the development of sensitive, highresolution, non-invasive diagnostic methods for periodontic diseases. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has attracted considerable attention in clinical settings. In this study, a reliable, robust algorithm for the detection of gingival sulcus in 2D OCT cross-sectional images is proposed. Previously, the measurement of gingival sulcus in OCT images has been performed by manual identification using two-dimensional (2D ...

    3. Analysis of Enamel Loss by Prophylaxis and Etching Treatment in Human Tooth Using Optical Coherence Tomography: An In Vitro Study

      Analysis of Enamel Loss by Prophylaxis and Etching Treatment in Human Tooth Using Optical Coherence Tomography: An In Vitro Study
      Bonding of braces is an essential part in contemporary orthodontic treatment. For the proper strength of bracket bonding, enamel conditioning or surface treatment on tooth surface is required. Treatment on the tooth surface such as prophylaxis smoothing with pumice and enamel etching results in considerable damages to the enamel surface of the tooth. In this study, we have proposed optical coherence tomography as a noninvasive imaging technique for the evaluation ...

    4. 3-Dimensional characterization of cortical bone microdamage following placement of orthodontic microimplants using Optical Coherence Tomography

      3-Dimensional characterization of cortical bone microdamage following placement of orthodontic microimplants using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Microimplants are being used extensively in clinical practice to achieve absolute anchorage. Success of microimplant mainly depend on its primary stability onto the cortical bone surface and the associated Microdamage of the cortical bone during insertion procedure leads to many a microimplants to fail and dislodge from the cortical bone leading to its failure. Even though, previous studies showed occurrence of microdamage in the cortical bone, they were mainly 2-dimension ...

    7. Non-Destructive Classification of Diversely Stained Capsicum annuum Seed Specimens of Different Cultivars Using Near-Infrared Imaging Based Optical Intensity Detection

      Non-Destructive Classification of Diversely Stained Capsicum annuum Seed Specimens of Different Cultivars Using Near-Infrared Imaging Based Optical Intensity Detection
      The non-destructive classification of plant materials using optical inspection techniques has been gaining much recent attention in the field of agriculture research. Among them, a near-infrared (NIR) imaging method called optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a well-known agricultural inspection tool since the last decade. Here we investigated the non-destructive identification capability of OCT to classify diversely stained (with various staining agents) Capsicum annuum seed specimens of different cultivars. A ...

    8. Quality assessment of the optical thin films using line field spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Quality assessment of the optical thin films using line field spectral domain optical coherence tomography
      Cross-sectional and three-dimensional images show the effectiveness of the system. In this study, the industrial inspection of optical thin film on touch screen panels was demonstrated using line field spectral domain optical coherence tomography. The conventional Fourier domain optical coherence tomography system requires a single scanner for two-dimensional cross-sectional images and two scanners for volumetric images. Our developed line field spectral domain optical coherence tomography has the advantage of needing ...

      Non-Destructive Analysis of the Internal Anatomical Structures of Mosquito Specimens Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      The study of mosquitoes and analysis of their behavior are of crucial importance in the on-going efforts to control the alarming increase in mosquito-borne diseases. Furthermore, a non-destructive and real-time imaging technique to study the anatomical features of mosquito specimens can greatly aid the study of mosquitoes. In this study, we demonstrate the three-dimensional imaging capabilities of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for structural analysis of Anopheles sinensis mosquitoes. The anatomical ...

      Application of wearable optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) techniques for In situ real-time field inspection of apple Marssonina blotch disease
      Here we describe the possible application of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to inspect Marssonina coronaria infected apple blotch disease of in situ apple leaves. To fulfill the in situ field inspection requirement, we developed a compact wearable OCT system. For the confirmation of OCT results, simultaneous experiment was performed in realtime using loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), which is frequently used in agriculture. LAMP method was developed as an alternative approach ...
