    2. Effects of age and disc area on optical coherence tomography measurements and analysis of correlations between optic nerve head and retinal nerve fibre layer

      Effects of age and disc area on optical coherence tomography measurements and analysis of correlations between optic nerve head and retinal nerve fibre layer
      ACKGROUND:The aim here was to investigate whether optic nerve head (ONH) parameters or retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness correlate with age or disc area and whether the neuroretinal rim correlates with RNFL thickness. METHODS: This cross-sectional study enrolled 133 healthy subjects and analysed one randomly selected eye of each subject. All measurements of ONH parameters (including neuroretinal rim, disc and cup areas and cup-to-disc ratios) and RNFL thickness ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Used $500M of Federally Funded Research Over The Past Decade: How was it Used, What was Accomplished, and What’s to Come?

      Optical Coherence Tomography Used $500M of Federally Funded Research Over The Past Decade: How was it Used, What was Accomplished, and What’s to Come?
      The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has blossomed dramatically since some of the first work by various researchers around the world in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Since then there have been dozens of companies created, hundreds of research groups working on OCT, thousands of research articles published, millions of patients scanned with OCT, hundreds of millions of venture capital and corporate R&D dollars invested, hundreds of ...

    4. Diagnosis of oral submucous fibrosis with optical coherence tomography

      The epithelium (EP) thickness and the standard deviation (SD) of A-mode scan intensity in the laminar propria (LP) layer are used as effective indicators for the diagnosis of oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) based on the noninvasive clinical scanning of a swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) system of ~6 m in axial resolution (in tissue) and 103 dB in sensitivity. Compared with the corresponding parameters in healthy oral mucosal mucosa, in ...

    5. Differentiating oral lesions in different carcinogenesis stages with optical coherence tomography

      A swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) system is used to clinically scan oral lesions in different oral carcinogenesis stages, including normal oral mucosa control, mild dysplasia (MiD), moderate dysplasia (MoD), early-stage squamous cell carcinoma (ES-SCC), and well-developed SCC (WD-SCC), for diagnosis purpose. On the basis of the analyses of the SS-OCT images, the stages of dysplasia (MiD and MoD), and SCC (ES-SCC and WD-SCC) can be differentiated from normal control ...

    6. Delineation of an oral cancer lesion with swept-source optical coherence tomography

      We demonstrate theex vivoimaging of an oral cancerous sample with a swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) system. With the axial resolution of8min free space and system sensitivity of108dB, we can well distinguish the normal and abnormal tissue portions in a sample. In particular, we analyze the lateral variation of A-scan profiles to show two parameters of SS-OCT signal for delineating an oral cancer lesion. One of the parameters is the ...

  2. About National Yang-Ming University

    National Yang-Ming University

    National Yang Ming University. It is known for its medical studies. The university was founded in 1975 as The National Yang-Ming Medical College to cultivate first-class medical professionals and biomedical scientists. In 1994 it was granted university status by the Ministry of Education and became the first university in Taiwan dedicated to biomedical education and research. Along with its original mission, the University now is devoted to excelling in biomedical research, and to promoting intercollegiate and international collaboration. In the 30 years since its founding, Yang-Ming has enjoyed a robust growth. By the end of the 2005 academic year, Yang-Ming became a medium-sized university with 5 schools - Medicine, Dentistry, Medical Technology and Biomedical Engineering, Life Sciences and Nursing, and a Center for General Education. Additionally, the Veterans General Hospitals, three leading medical centers with a total of more than 5,500 beds and more than 1,600 physicians , serve as the teaching hospitals for medical and paramedical students. Yang-Ming also established 15 research centers with a wide spectrum of emphases including Genomic Medicine, Brain Research, Cognitive Neuroscience, Immunology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Medical Imaging, Biophoptonics, Bioinformatics, Health Informatics, AIDS, Community Medicine, and Community Nursing. The University currently has 7 departments and 28 graduate institutes with 1853 undergraduate students, 1736 graduate students, 296 full-time faculty members, and 1066 adjunct faculty members.
