    2. Investigation of Puccinia triticina contagion on wheat leaves using swept source optical coherence tomography

      Investigation of Puccinia triticina contagion on wheat leaves using swept source optical coherence tomography
      We present an investigation on applicability of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) to examine the internal structures of plant leaves. This study helps to identify the growth and spread of the leaf rust disease in leaves of wheat plants, caused by Puccinia triticina . The epidermal cell layer and parenchyma cell layer of the acquired OCT images are correlated with the histological images to show distinctive leaf morphological boundaries. In the ...

      Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnONPs) as contrast agent for imaging of animal tissue using swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT)
      We present applicability of ZnO nanoparticles (ZnONPs) as a potential contrast agent for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) imaging. A 1064nm laser source was used in a swept source configuration capable of a scanning rate of 100kHz (100,000A-lines/s). Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography (SSOCT) is a variation of OCT, offering greater scan rates, higher resolution and signal-to-noise ratios.

      TiO2 nanoparticles as exogenous contrast agent for 1 µm swept source optical coherence tomography: an in vitro study
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a rapidly evolving, robust technology that has profoundly changed the practice of medical imaging. Swept source OCT (SSOCT) combines the standard time domain and the spatially encoded frequency domain OCT. We have employed a high-speed SSOCT system that utilizes a swept source laser with an A-scan rate of 100kHz and a central wavelength of 1060nm for the imaging of the tissue. SSOCT at 1060nm allows ...

    8. Imaging of the human choroid with a 1.7 MHz A-scan rate FDML swept source OCT system

      Imaging of the human choroid with a 1.7 MHz A-scan rate FDML swept source OCT system
      We demonstrate OCT angiography (OCTA) and Doppler OCT imaging of the choroid in the eyes of two healthy volunteers and in a geographic atrophy case. We show that visualization of specific choroidal layers requires selection of appropriate OCTA methods. We investigate how imaging speed, B-scan averaging and scanning density influence visualization of various choroidal vessels. We introduce spatial power spectrum analysis of OCT en face angiographic projections as a method ...

    9. Implementation of the swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) system with a statistical method to analyze optical properties of turbid media

      Implementation of the swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) system with a statistical method to analyze optical properties of turbid media
      We present a spectroscopic OCT (sOCT) system to extract spectroscopic properties of turbid media using principle component analysis (PCA) and swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT). Extracted results are well comparable with the standard photo spectrometer technique. This system has potential for real time measurement of blood oxygen saturation and monitoring of relative concentration for other metabolic compounds inside human body.

      Noninvasive, non-contact and \textit{in vivo} monitoring of blood glucose is a long needed pathology tool for saving patients from recurring pain and hassle that can accompany conventional blood glucose testing methods. Optical coherence tomography known for its high axial resolution imaging modality is adopted in this article for monitoring glucose levels in tissue like media non-invasively.
