      Method and apparatus for obtaining a three-dimensional map of tympanic membrane thickness
      Methods and apparatus for combining a low coherence interferometry (LCI) technique for single-point thickness measurement with videootoscopy for recording the image of a tissue such as the tympanic membrane (TM). TM thickness distribution maps are obtained by mapping the LCI imaging sites onto an anatomically accurate wide-field image of the TM, generated by mosaicking a sequence of multiple small field-of-view video-otoscopy images.

    8. Magnetomotive Displacement of the Tympanic Membrane using Magnetic Nanoparticles: Toward Enhancement of Sound Perception

      Magnetomotive Displacement of the Tympanic Membrane using Magnetic Nanoparticles: Toward Enhancement of Sound Perception
      Objective: A novel hearing-aid scheme using magnetomotive nanoparticles (MNPs) as transducers in the tympanic membrane (TM) is proposed, aiming to noninvasively and directly induce a modulated vibration on the TM. Methods: In this feasibility study, iron-oxide (Fesub3/subOsub4/sub) nanoparticles were applied on ex vivo rat TM tissues and allowed to diffuse over ~2 hr. Subsequently, magnetic force was exerted on the MNP-laden TM via a programmable electromagnetic solenoid to ...

    9. Noninvasive in vivo optical coherence tomography tracking of chronic otitis media in pediatric subjects after surgical intervention

      Noninvasive in vivo optical coherence tomography tracking of chronic otitis media in pediatric subjects after surgical intervention
      In an institutional review board-approved study, 25 pediatric subjects diagnosed with chronic or recurrent otitis media were observed over a period of six months with optical coherence tomography (OCT). Subjects were followed throughout their treatment at the initial patient evaluation and preoperative consultation, surgery (intraoperative imaging), and postoperative follow-up, followed by an additional six months of records-based observation. At each time point, the tympanic membrane (at the light reflex region ...

    11. Ratiometric analysis of optical coherence tomography–measured in vivo retinal layer thicknesses for the detection of early diabetic retinopathy

      Ratiometric analysis of optical coherence tomography–measured in vivo retinal layer thicknesses for the detection of early diabetic retinopathy
      Influence of diabetes mellitus (DM) and diabetic retinopathy (DR) on parafoveal retinal thicknesses and their ratios was evaluated. Six retinal layer boundaries were segmented from spectral-domain optical coherence tomography images using open-source software. Five study groups: (1) healthy control (HC) subjects, and subjects with (2) controlled DM, (3) uncontrolled DM, (4) controlled DR and (5) uncontrolled DR, were identified. The one-way analyses of variance (ANOVA) between adjacent study groups (i ...
