    5. Taking the Pulse of the Eyes: OCT Measures the Mechanics of Eyes in Response to Heartbeats

      Taking the Pulse of the Eyes: OCT Measures the Mechanics of Eyes in Response to Heartbeats
      Life is measured in heartbeats, so they sayand heartbeats may soon help measure the health of our eyes. If doctors can measure pulse in the eye to diagnose corneal pathologies, the results may save vision and may also save lives. Every heartbeat sends a pulse wave of blood, inducing very small yet measurable changes in the eye volume, with a resultant momentary increase in intraocular pressure. Working from the postulate ...

    6. Functional optical coherence tomography and photoacoustic microscopy imaging for zebrafish larvae

      Functional optical coherence tomography and photoacoustic microscopy imaging for zebrafish larvae
      We present a dual modality functional optical coherence tomography and photoacoustic microscopy (OCT-PAM) system. The photoacoustic modality employs an akinetic optical sensor with a large imaging window. This imaging window enables direct reflection mode operation, and a seamless integration of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a second imaging modality. Functional extensions to the OCT-PAM system include Doppler OCT (DOCT) and spectroscopic PAM (sPAM). This functional and non-invasive imaging system is ...

    9. Morpho-molecular ex vivo detection and grading of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer using forward imaging probe based multimodal optical coherence tomography and Raman spectroscop

      Morpho-molecular ex vivo detection and grading of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer using forward imaging probe based multimodal optical coherence tomography and Raman spectroscop
      Non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer affects millions of people worldwide, resulting in significant discomfort to the patient and potential death. Today, cystoscopy is the gold standard for bladder cancer assessment, using white light endoscopy to detect tumor suspected lesion areas, followed by resection of these areas and subsequent histopathological evaluation. Not only does the pathological examination take days, but due to the invasive nature, the performed biopsy can result in significant harm ...

      En face optical coherence tomography: a technology review [Invited]
      A review on the technological development of en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence microscopy (OCM) is provided. The terminology originally referred to time domain OCT, where the preferential scanning was performed in the en face plane. Potentially the fastest realization of en face image recording is full-field OCT, where the full en face plane is illuminated and recorded simultaneously. The term has nowadays been adopted for high-speed ...

    12. Synthetic subaperture-based angle-independent Doppler flow measurements using single-beam line field optical coherence tomography in vivo

      Synthetic subaperture-based angle-independent Doppler flow measurements using single-beam line field optical coherence tomography in vivo
      We demonstrate a synthetic subaperture-based angle-independent Doppler flow calculation, using a line field spectral domain optical coherence tomography system. The high speed of the system features a high phase stability over the volume, which is necessary to apply synthetic subapertures in the aperture plane. Thus, the flow component for each subaperture can be reconstructed in postprocessing. Capillary phantom and in vivo retinal imaging experiments were performed to validate and demonstrate ...

      Multimodal Optical Medical Imaging Concepts based on Optical Coherence Tomography
      Optical medical imaging techniques in general exhibit outstanding resolution and molecule-specific contrast. They come however with a limited penetration in depth and small field of view. Multimodal concepts help to combine complementary strengths of different imaging technologies. The present article reviews the advantages of optical multimodal imaging concepts using optical coherence tomography (OCT) as core technology. In particular we first discuss polarization sensitive OCT, Doppler OCT and OCT angiography, OCT ...

      Feature Of The Week 07/01/2018: Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography with a Flexible Fiber Bundle
      We demonstrate in vivo endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in the forward direction using a flexible fiber bundle (FB). In comparison to current conventional forward-looking probe schemes, our approach simplifies the endoscope design by avoiding the integration of any beam steering components in the distal probe end due to two-dimensional scanning of a focused light beam over the proximal FB surface. We describe the challenges that arise when OCT ...
