    2. Optical Radiomic Signatures Derived from Optical Coherence Tomography Images to Improve Identification of Melanoma

      Optical Radiomic Signatures Derived from Optical Coherence Tomography Images to Improve Identification of Melanoma
      The current gold standard for the clinical diagnosis of melanoma is excisional biopsy and histopathologic analysis. Approximately 15-30 benign lesions are biopsied to diagnose each melanoma. Additionally, biopsies are invasive and result in pain, anxiety, scarring and disfigurement of patients which can add an additional burden to the health care system. Among several imaging techniques developed to enhance melanoma diagnosis, optical coherence tomography (OCT), with its high-resolution and intermediate penetration ...

      Special Section Guest Editorial: Commemorating 25 Years of Optical Coherence Tomography: a Perspective on Biomedical Applications
      ptical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a major medical imaging technology in the time since its inception now more than 25 years ago. During this time, OCT has become very well established in ophthalmology, and this application area largely dominates the field. Next in importance and stage of development is cardiovascular medicine, also a strongly commercial technology, but at an earlier stage and a slower pace of uptake than ophthalmology ...

      Feature Of The Week 12/1/13: Simultaneous Dual Wavelength Eye-Tracked Ultrahigh Resolution Retinal and Choroidal OCT
      An eye-tracked high resolution OCT device is presented for clinical multimodal imaging of the retina and the deep choroid, based on the platform of a commercial Heidelberg-Engineering SPECTRALIS OCT device. The system is aimed to drive the development of novel therapeutic approaches for better eye care. The dual spectrometer based frequency domain OCT with built-in confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) operating at 735 nm, corrects for eye-motion in real time ...

      Skin Cancer A Practical Approach (Textbook)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has developed rapidly since its first realisation in medicine and is currently an emerging technology in the diagnosis of skin disease. OCT is an interferometric technique that detects reflected and backscattered light from tissue and is often described as the optical analogue to ultrasound. The inherent safety of the technology allows for in vivo use of OCT in patients. The main strength of OCT is the ...

    8. Retinal polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography at 1060 nm with 350 kHz A-scan rate using an Fourier domain mode locked laser

      Retinal polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography at 1060 nm with 350 kHz A-scan rate using an Fourier domain mode locked laser
      We present a novel, high-speed, polarization-sensitive, optical coherence tomography set-up for retinal imaging operating at a central wavelength of 1060 nm which was tested for in vivo imaging in healthy human volunteers. We use the system in combination with a Fourier domain mode locked laser with active spectral shaping which enables the use of forward and backward sweep in order to double the imaging speed without a buffering stage. With ...

    12. Investigation of the impact of water absorption on retinal OCT imaging in the 1060 nm range

      Investigation of the impact of water absorption on retinal OCT imaging in the 1060 nm range
      Recently, the wavelength range around 1060 nm has become attractive for retinal imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT), promising deep penetration into the retina and the choroid. The adjacent water absorption bands limit the useful bandwidth of broadband light sources, but until now, the actual limitation has not been quantified in detail. We have numerically investigated the impact of water absorption on the axial resolution and signal amplitude for a ...

    13. High-speed polarization-sensitive OCT at 1060 nm using a Fourier domain mode-locked swept source

      High-speed polarization-sensitive OCT at 1060 nm using a Fourier domain mode-locked swept source
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the 1060nm range is interesting for in vivo imaging of the human posterior eye segment (retina, choroid, sclera), as it permits a long penetration depth. Complementary to structural images, polarization-sensitive OCT (PS-OCT) images visualize birefringent, polarization-maintaining or depolarizing areas within the sample. This information can be used to distinguish retinal layers and structures with different polarization properties. High imaging speed is crucial for imaging ocular ...

  3. Quotes

    1. The gap between these communities exists mainly because of tradition, and because it is difficult to cross the border into another scientific field. Put simply: it is difficult to follow discussions in another area. I might attend a conference in medicine or biology, but it would be difficult to understand the key challenges. It is the exact same situation for a clinician attending a photonics conference...In the long-term, we must address the way we teach topics such as biology, medicine and technical sciences in high schools and universities.
