    2. Dynamic imaging of a small artery underneath skin surface of a human finger by optical coherence tomography

      Dynamic imaging of a small artery underneath skin surface of a human finger by optical coherence tomography
      OCT is a powerful tool for detection of physiological functions of micro organs underneath the human skin surface, besides the clinical application to ophthalmology, as recently demonstrated by the authors group. In particular, dynamics of peripheral vessels can be observed clearly in the time-sequential OCT images. Among the vascular system, only the small artery has two physiological functions both for the elastic artery and for muscle-controlled one. It, therefore, is ...

    3. Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy Progression Associated With Intraplaque Neovascularization

      Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy Progression Associated With Intraplaque Neovascularization
      A 52-year-old man underwent scheduled cardiac catheterization for assessment of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) at 3 and 12 months after heart transplantation (HTx). Intravascular ultrasound showed only mild CAV in the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) at 3 months ( B , Online Video 1 ). However, at 12 months, CAV progression was detected, predominantly in the proximal LAD ( A and C3 , Online Video 2 ). Corresponding optical coherence tomography images revealed the ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography in IgG4-related Coronary Periarteritis

      Optical Coherence Tomography in IgG4-related Coronary Periarteritis
      We herein report the case of a 66-year-old patient with acute coronary syndrome who was diagnosed with immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related coronary periarteritis with a perivascular pseudotumor and underwent coronary bypass graft surgery (1). The serum IgG4 concentration markedly decreased after the bypass was performed and gradually returned to the baseline level one-year after surgery (2). Despite initially achieving success, the bypass graft to the left circumflex artery (Lcx) was ...

    5. Detailed observation of arterial healing after stent implantation in swine arteries by using optical coherence tomography

      Detailed observation of arterial healing after stent implantation in swine arteries by using optical coherence tomography
      BACKGROUND: Histopathological examination is not suitable for sequential in vivo analysis of arterial healing after stenting because it can be performed only after the animals are killed. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides higher resolution than intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). The aim of this study was to compare arterial healing images after stenting on the basis of the findings of histopathological examination, IVUS, and OCT. METHODS: We examined 12 vessels; 12 bare-metal ...

    6. Feature Of The Week 4/8/12: Researchers at Osaka and Nagoya University Investigate The Use of Ultrahigh Resolution OCT for Imaging Protein Crystals

      Feature Of The Week 4/8/12: Researchers at Osaka and Nagoya University Investigate The Use of Ultrahigh Resolution OCT for Imaging Protein Crystals
      technique used for atomic-resolution protein-structure studies, and currently, robotic automation is often used to monitor and optimize crystallization conditions. However, it is often difficult to identify, by conventional light microscopy, crystals that can be used for X-ray crystallography when micro-size, needle, and salt crystals are also present in the crystallization medium.For the work reported herein, we demonstrated that micro-scale, non-invasive, three-dimensional (3D) cross-sectional, μm-resolution imaging of protein crystals could ...

    7. Three-dimensional, non-invasive, cross-sectional imaging of protein crystals using ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography

      Three-dimensional, non-invasive, cross-sectional imaging of protein crystals using ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography
      Micro-scale, non-invasive, three-dimensional cross-sectional imaging of protein crystals was successfully accomplished using ultra-high resolution optical coherence tomography (UHR-OCT) with low noise, Gaussian like supercontinuum. This technique facilitated visualization of protein crystals even those in medium that also contained substantial amounts of precipitates. We found the enhancement of the scattered signal from protein crystal by inclusion of agarose gel in the crystallization medium. Crystals of a protein and a salt in ...

    8. Spectral dependence of ultra-low dark count superconducting single photon detector for the evaluation of broadband parametric fluorescence

      Spectral dependence of ultra-low dark count superconducting single photon detector for the evaluation of broadband parametric fluorescence
      Superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPD) have unique characteristics of ultra low dark counts and wide spectrum sensitivity. These natures are indispensable for the evaluation of ultra-broadband parametric fluorescence, which are used for the quantum optical coherence tomography and novel optical non-linear experiments. Here we report the spectral dependence of the detection efficiency of a meander type SNSPD device, having reduced strip width of 50 nm, over a wide spectrum ...

    9. Choroidal observations in Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada disease using high-penetration optical coherence tomography

      Choroidal observations in Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada disease using high-penetration optical coherence tomography
      Background The aim of this work was to investigate the choroidal morphologic changes of Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada (VKH) disease in vivo using high-penetration optical coherence tomography (HP-OCT) with a long-wavelength light source (1,060 nm). Methods Fourteen patients with VKH disease were included in this study: 12 eyes of six patients with treatment-naive acute VKH in the first 6–12 months after diagnosis and 16 eyes of eight patients in ...

    10. Effects of Age, Sex, and Axial Length on the Three-Dimensional Profile of Normal Macular Layer Structures

      Effects of Age, Sex, and Axial Length on the Three-Dimensional Profile of Normal Macular Layer Structures
      Purpose. To identify sex-related differences and age-related changes in individual retinal layer thicknesses in a population of healthy eyes across the lifespan, using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods. In seven institutes in Japan, mean thicknesses of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), ganglion cell layer (GCL), inner plexiform layer (IPL), inner nuclear layer (INL), outer plexiform layer (OPL), outer nuclear layer (ONL), photoreceptor inner segment (IS), and photoreceptor ...

    11. Generation of broadband spontaneous parametric fluorescence and its application to quantum optical coherence tomography

      Generation of broadband spontaneous parametric fluorescence and its application to quantum optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) based on Michelson interferometer has widely been utilized in biology and medicine as a type of optical biopsy and quantum optical coherence tomography (QOCT) based on Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer has recently been demonstrated. By use of quantum entangled photon pairs generated via spontaneous parametric down conversion (SPDC) process, axial resolution of QOCT can be better than that of OCT in principle for a source of same bandwidth ...
