    2. An optical coherence tomography-based grading of diabetic maculopathy proposed by an international expert panel: The European School for Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology classification

      An optical coherence tomography-based grading of diabetic maculopathy proposed by an international expert panel: The European School for Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology classification
      Aims: To present an authoritative, universal, easy-to-use morphologic classification of diabetic maculopathy based on spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Methods: The first draft of the project was developed based on previously published classifications and a literature search regarding the spectral domain optical coherence tomography quantitative and qualitative features of diabetic maculopathy. This draft was sent to an international panel of retina experts for a first revision. The panel met at ...

    3. Measuring light scattering and absorption in corals with Inverse Spectroscopic Optical Coherence Tomography (ISOCT): a new tool for non-invasive monitoring

      Measuring light scattering and absorption in corals with Inverse Spectroscopic Optical Coherence Tomography (ISOCT): a new tool for non-invasive monitoring
      The success of reef-building corals for 200 million years has been dependent on the mutualistic interaction between the coral host and its photosynthetic endosymbiont dinoflagellates (family Symbiodiniaceae) that supply the coral host with nutrients and energy for growth and calcification. While multiple light scattering in coral tissue and skeleton significantly enhance the light microenvironment for Symbiodiniaceae, the mechanisms of light propagation in tissue and skeleton remain largely unknown due to ...

    4. New imaging platform examines mechanisms behind coral bleaching

      New imaging platform examines mechanisms behind coral bleaching
      As coral reefs deteriorate in the face of climate change, an interdisciplinary Northwestern Engineering research team has developed an innovative method to image coral nanoscale structures and quantify pigment absorption in live corals, an indicator of coral health. The imaging platform could become a valuable tool to help marine biologists better understand coral physiology as well measure and monitor coral health. Reef building corals provide a home to more than ...

    5. VIS-OCT Opens Eyes to New Approaches

      VIS-OCT Opens Eyes to New Approaches
      First reported in 1991 by Huang and colleagues 1 , OCT has become an important imaging tool for ophthalmology following innovations over the past three decades. OCT noninvasively provides 3D in vivo optical biopsy with microscopic resolution in the eye at a depth range up to the choroid 2 . Besides 3D anatomical imaging, OCT can also provide functional information. The most notable functional extension is OCT angiography (OCTA), which can map ...

    6. Longitudinal deep-brain imaging in mouse using visible-light optical coherence tomography through chronic microprism cranial window

      Longitudinal deep-brain imaging in mouse using visible-light optical coherence tomography through chronic microprism cranial window
      We longitudinally imaged both the superficial and deep cortical microvascular networks in brains of healthy mice and in a mouse model of stroke in vivo using visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT). We surgically implanted a microprism in mouse brains sealed by a chronic cranial window. The microprism enabled vis-OCT to image the entire depth of the mouse cortex. Following microprism implantation, we imaged the mice for 28 days and found ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography diagnostic signs in posterior uveitis

      Optical coherence tomography diagnostic signs in posterior uveitis
      A diagnostic sign refers to a quantifiable biological parameter that is measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biological, pathogenic, or pharmacologic responses to a therapeutic intervention. When used in translational research discussions, the term itself often alludes to a signs used to accelerate or aid in diagnosis or monitoring and provide insight into personalized medicine. Many new diagnostic signs are being developed that involve imaging technology. Optical coherence ...

    8. Speckle reduction in visible-light optical coherence tomography using scan modulation

      Speckle reduction in visible-light optical coherence tomography using scan modulation
      We present a technique to reduce speckle in visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) that preserves fine structural details and is robust against sample motion. Specifically, we locally modulate B-scans orthogonally to their axis of acquisition. Such modulation enables acquisition of uncorrelated speckle patterns from similar anatomical locations, which can be averaged to reduce speckle. To verify the effectiveness of speckle reduction, we performed in-vivo retinal imaging using modulated raster and ...

      Designing visible-light optical coherence tomography towards clinics
      Background: The capabilities of visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT) in noninvasive anatomical and functional retinal imaging have been demonstrated by multiple groups in both rodents and healthy human subjects. Translating laboratory prototypes to an integrated clinical-environment-friendly system is required to explore the full potential of vis-OCT in disease management. Methods: We developed and optimized a portable vis-OCT system for human retinal imaging in clinical settings. We acquired raster- and circular-scan ...

      An overview of optical coherence tomography angiography and the posterior pole
      Optical coherence tomography angiography is a relatively new, noninvasive technology that has revolutionized imaging of the retinal and choroidal microvasculature. This technology is based on the detection of movement or changes that represent moving red cells in sequential optical coherence tomography scans. As with other established imaging technologies, it has unique benefits as well as certain disadvantages, which include a limited field of view and vulnerability to imaging artifacts. However ...
