    2. Skin surface and sub-surface strain and deformation imaging using optical coherence tomography and digital image correlation

      Skin surface and sub-surface strain and deformation imaging using optical coherence tomography and digital image correlation
      Bio-mechanical properties of the human skin deformed by external forces at difference skin/material interfaces attract much attention in medical research. For instance, such properties are important design factors when one designs a healthcare device, i.e., the device might be applied directly at skin/device interfaces. In this paper, we investigated the bio-mechanical properties, i.e., surface strain, morphological changes of the skin layers, etc., of the human finger-pad ...

    4. Capsule camera with variable illumination of the surrounding tissue

      Capsule camera with variable illumination of the surrounding tissue
      The application relates to an ingestible capsule and method for in vivo imaging and/or treatment of one or more diseased areas of interest within the gastrointestinal tract of an animal or human being. The capsule comprises an image sensor; a lens system for focusing images onto the image sensor; at least one light source for illumination of the tissue area of interest, the at least one light source optionally ...

    6. Imaging system with two imaging modalities

      Imaging system with two imaging modalities
      An imaging system with two modalities has a catheter with an optical lens system situated at an end of the catheter and optically connected to optical guide. The lens system has a numerical aperture which is changeable between a first aperture and a second larger numerical aperture. The imaging system also has an imaging unit for optical imaging with the catheter. First and second imaging modalities are optically connectable with ...

    7. Non-invasive imaging through opaque scattering layers

      Non-invasive imaging through opaque scattering layers
      Non-invasive optical imaging techniques, such as optical coherence tomography 1 , 2 , 3 , are essential diagnostic tools in many disciplines, from the life sciences to nanotechnology. However, present methods are not able to image through opaque layers that scatter all the incident light 4 , 5 . Even a very thin layer of a scattering material can appear opaque and hide any objects behind it 6 . Although great progress has been made recently ...

    8. Feature Of The Week 12/4/11: Researchers in Hannover Germany Utilize OCT to Measure Skin Swelling Along Percutaneous Implants

      Feature Of The Week 12/4/11: Researchers in Hannover Germany Utilize OCT to Measure Skin Swelling Along Percutaneous Implants
      Researchers from the Leibniz University of Hannover (LUH), Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH), and the Hannover Medical School (MHH) used OCT to measure skin swelling along percutaneous implants. An undistortion technique is proposed to compensate for the refractive distortions [1].Optical Coherence Tomography is a non invasive imaging modality recently used for taking high resolution optical biopsies of layered tissue structures such as the epidermis and the retina.As the OCT ...

    9. Model Based 3D Segmentation and OCT Image Undistortion of Percutaneous Implants

      Model Based 3D Segmentation and OCT Image Undistortion of Percutaneous Implants
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive im-aging technique which is used here for in vivo biocompatibility studies of percutaneous implants. A prerequisite for a morphometric analysis of the OCT images is the correction of optical distortions caused by the index of refraction in the tissue. We propose a fully automatic approach for 3D segmentation of percutaneous implants using Markov random fields. Refraction correction is done by using the subcutaneous ...

    10. Needle stylet with integrated optical fibers for spectroscopic contrast during peripheral nerve blocks

      Needle stylet with integrated optical fibers for spectroscopic contrast during peripheral nerve blocks
      The effectiveness of peripheral nerve blocks is highly dependent on the accuracy at which the needle tip is navigated to the target injection site. Even when electrical stimulation is utilized in combination with ultrasound guidance, determining the proximity of the needle tip to the target region close to the nerve can be challenging. Optical reflectance spectroscopy could provide additional information about tissues that is complementary to these navigation methods. We ...

    11. Thermal strain imaging: a review

      Thermal strain imaging: a review
      Thermal strain imaging (TSI) or temporal strain imaging is an ultrasound application that exploits the temperature dependence of sound speed to create thermal (temporal) strain images. This article provides an overview of the field of TSI for biomedical applications that have appeared in the literature over the past several years. Basic theory in thermal strain is introduced. Two major energy sources appropriate for clinical applications are discussed. Promising biomedical applications ...
