    2. Nanosensitive optical coherence tomography to assess wound healing within the cornea

      Nanosensitive optical coherence tomography to assess wound healing within the cornea
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive depth resolved optical imaging modality, that enables high resolution, cross-sectional imaging in biological tissues and materials at clinically relevant depths. Though OCT offers high resolution imaging, the best ultra-high-resolution OCT systems are limited to imaging structural changes with a resolution of one micron on a single B-scan within very limited depth. Nanosensitive OCT (nsOCT) is a recently developed technique that is capable of ...

    3. Automatic stent reconstruction in optical coherence tomography based on a deep convolutional model

      Automatic stent reconstruction in optical coherence tomography based on a deep convolutional model
      Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) can accurately assess stent apposition and expansion, thus enabling the optimisation of a stenting procedure to minimize the risk of device failure. This paper presents a deep convolutional based model for automatic detection and segmentation of stent struts. The input of pseudo-3D images aggregated the information from adjacent frames to refine the probability of strut detection. In addition, multi-scale shortcut connections were implemented to minimize ...

    5. Comparison of Diagnostic Performance of Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography-based and Angiography-based Fractional Flow Reserve for Evaluation of Coronary Stenosis

      Comparison of Diagnostic Performance of Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography-based and Angiography-based Fractional Flow Reserve for Evaluation of Coronary Stenosis
      Aims: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of OCT-based optical flow ratio (OFR) in unselected patients and compare it with angiography-based quantitative flow ratio (QFR), using wire-based FFR as reference standard. Methods and results: All patients with OCT and FFR assessment prior to revascularization were analyzed. OFR and QFR were computed in blinded fashion and compared with FFR, all applying same cut-off value of 0.80 to define ischemia. Paired comparison ...

    6. Spatial frequency domain correlation mapping optical coherence tomography for nanoscale structural characterization

      Spatial frequency domain correlation mapping optical coherence tomography for nanoscale structural characterization
      Most of the fundamental pathological processes in living tissues exhibit changes at the nanoscale. Noninvasive, label-free detection of structural changes in biological samples pose a significant challenge to both researchers and healthcare professionals. It is highly desirable to be able to resolve these structural changes, during physiological processes, both spatially and temporally. Modern nanoscopy largely requires labeling, is limited to superficial 2D imaging, and is generally not suitable for in ...

    7. The multi-spectral signal properties of multiple reference optical coherence tomography (Thesis)

      The multi-spectral signal properties of multiple reference optical coherence tomography (Thesis)
      Efforts to reduce the size and costs of optical coherence tomography systems (OCT) for consumer applications, in general, focus on Fourier-domain OCT, due to its potential to be integrated on an optical chip, implementing the interferometer and the spectrometer together as a compact system. An alternative and near-term solution is multiple reference OCT. This technique utilizes a partial mirror in the reference arm to enhance the axial imaging depth of ...

    8. Diagnostic accuracy of intracoronary optical coherence tomography-derived fractional flow reserve for assessment of coronary stenosis severity

      Diagnostic accuracy of intracoronary optical coherence tomography-derived fractional flow reserve for assessment of coronary stenosis severity
      ims: A novel method for computation of fractional flow reserve (FFR) from optical coherence tomography (OCT) was developed recently. This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of a new OCT-based FFR (OFR) computational approach, using wire-based FFR as the reference standard. Methods and results: Patients who underwent both OCT and FFR prior to intervention were analysed. The lumen of the interrogated vessel and the ostia of the side branches ...

      Optical coherence tomography substudy of a prospective multicentre randomised post-market trial to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Firehawk cobalt-chromium coronary stent (rapamycin target-eluting) system for the treatment of atherosclerotic le
      Aims: Durable polymer drug-eluting stents (DP-DES) may contribute to persistent inflammation, delayed endothelial healing and subsequent late DES thrombosis. The aim of this optical coherence tomography (OCT) substudy was to compare healing and neointimal coverage of a novel bioabsorbable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (Firehawk ) (BP-DES) versus the DP-DES (XIENCE) at 90 days in an all-comers patient population. Methods and results: The TARGET All Comers study is a prospective multicentre randomised post-market ...

      Feasibility of correlation mapping optical coherence tomography angiographic technique using a 200  kHz vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser source for in vivo microcirculation imaging applications
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography is a well-established in vivo imaging technique to assess the overall vascular morphology of tissues and is an emerging field of research for the assessment of blood flow dynamics and functional parameters such as oxygen saturation. In this study, we present a modified scanning-based correlation mapping OCT using a 200 kHz high-speed swept-source OCT system operating at 1300 nm and demonstrate its wide field-imaging capability ...

      Characterization of an amplified piezoelectric actuator for multiple-reference optical coherence tomography
      The characterization of an amplified piezoelectric actuator (APA) as a new axial scanning method for multiple-reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) is described. MR-OCT is a compact optical imaging device based on a recirculating reference-arm-scanning optical delay using a partial mirror that can enhance the imaging depth range by more than 10 times the reference mirrors scanning amplitude. The scanning amplitude of the used APA was varied between 30 m and ...
