    2. Recent development of optical coherence tomography for preoperative diagnosis of esophageal malignancies

      Recent development of optical coherence tomography for preoperative diagnosis of esophageal malignancies
      Endoscopic diagnosis with histological evidence is necessary to decide the best strategy for treating esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and Barretts-associated neoplasia, and the recent development of endoscopic technologies have made possible real-time information of malignant hallmarks. We focused on the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT), the only technology that can depict real-time cross-sectional images with high resolution. With the improvements in image resolution, acquisition rate and demonstrable area of ...

    4. Detection of buried Barrett’s glands after radiofrequency ablation with volumetric laser endomicroscopy

      Detection of buried Barrett’s glands after radiofrequency ablation with volumetric laser endomicroscopy
      Background and Aims The prevalence and clinical relevance of buried Barretts glands (BB) after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in Barretts esophagus (BE) are debated. Recent optical coherence tomography studies demonstrated a high prevalence of BBs. Direct histological correlation, however, has been lacking. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is a second-generation optical coherence tomography system capable of scanning a large surface of the esophageal wall layers with low-power microscopy resolution. The aim was ...

    7. Safety and feasibility of volumetric laser endomicroscopy in patients with Barrett’s esophagus (with videos)

      Safety and feasibility of volumetric laser endomicroscopy in patients with Barrett’s esophagus (with videos)
      Background Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) produces high-resolution, cross-sectional surface, and subsurface images for detecting neoplasia, targeting biopsies, and guiding real-time treatment. Objective To evaluate the safety and feasibility of the Nvision VLE system. Design Prospective, multicenter study. Setting Tertiary-care medical centers. Patients One hundred patients with suspected Barretts esophagus, including 52 patients with prior endotherapy. Interventions The first-generation Nvision VLE Imaging System, a balloon-centered, rotating optical probe provided images of ...

    8. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy in Barrett's esophagus: a feasibility study on histological correlation

      Volumetric laser endomicroscopy in Barrett's esophagus: a feasibility study on histological correlation
      Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is a novel balloon-based optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging technique that may improve detection of early neoplasia in Barrett's esophagus (BE). Most OCT studies lack a direct correlation between histology and OCT images. The aim is to investigate the optimal approach for achieving one-to-one correlation of ex-vivo VLE images of endoscopic resection (ER) specimens with histology. BE patients with and without early neoplasia underwent ER ...

      FREQUENCY-DOMAIN Optical Coherence Tomography With Extended FIELD-OF-VIEW And Reduction Of Aliasing Artifacts
      The present disclosure provides an OCT imaging system to reduce or eliminate frequency-domain aliasing artifacts. The frequency is shifted using a carrier frequency to define a sampling range substantially centered on the carrier frequency. An image of the sample is generated from a displayed imaging range that consists of a subset of the frequencies within the sampling range.
