      Optical Coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technique that resembles the effect of ultrasound, but uses light instead of sound waves. OCT provides cross-sections of the area to be investigated that can be combined into a 2D image. OCT is widely used in ophthalmology and increasingly also to acquire images in the body. With this new diagnostics it can be prevented that operations are wrongly carried out, a problem that ...

  2. About Scinvivo


    Scinvivo is a Dutch heatlh-tech start-up and we are developing an OCT imaging catheter for bladder cancer diagnostics. Current imaging techniques for bladder cancer have their limitations, as they only enable the urologist to visualise the bladder wall surface. In 30% of the cases, healthy tissue is incorrectly classified as cancerous. Another limitation is that it is difficult to fully remove a tumor during a surgical procedure, as the borders of the tumor are difficult to visualize. The last limitation is that it is impossible to determine the invasion depth of the tumor with current imaging technologies, while the invasion depth has major impact on the proposed treatment. All these limitation lead to unnecessary, invasive, and costly interventions. Scinvivos technology enables the urologist to improve diagnosis, and thus decreasing the amount of interventions, patient burden, and costs
