    2. AGE Challenge: Angle Closure Glaucoma Evaluation in Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

      AGE Challenge: Angle Closure Glaucoma Evaluation in Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography
      Angle closure glaucoma (ACG) is a more aggressive disease than open-angle glaucoma, where the abnormal anatomical structures of the anterior chamber angle (ACA) may cause an elevated intraocular pressure and gradually leads to glaucomatous optic neuropathy and eventually to visual impairment and blindness. Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT) imaging provides a fast and contactless way to discriminate angle closure from open angle. Although many medical image analysis algorithms have ...

    3. Dual-side view optical coherence tomography for thickness measurement on opaque materials

      Dual-side view optical coherence tomography for thickness measurement on opaque materials
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT), as an optical interferometric imaging technique, has found wide applications in various fields. In principle, OCT is well suited for imaging layered structures, and thus, one of the typical applications is thickness measurement. However, due to the limited imaging depth resulting from light attenuation, thickness measurement by OCT is limited to non-opaque materials. In this study, we developed a novel (to the best of our knowledge ...

    4. Segmentation Guided Registration for 3D Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Images

      Segmentation Guided Registration for 3D Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Images
      Medical image registration can be used for combining information from multiple imaging modalities, monitoring changes in size, shape or image intensity over time intervals. However, the development of such technique can be challenging for 3D spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging, because SD-OCT image is inherently noisy and its high resolution leads to high complexity of non-rigid registration. In this paper, a new segmentation guided approach is reported for registration ...

      Three-dimensional Reconstruction of Optical Coherence Tomography Images of Esophagus
      The combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and endoscope can take images of the body tissues for clinical diagnosis. OCT images are difficult to photograph with regular imaging devices, such as the esophagus and gastrointestinal tract. Three-dimensional reconstruction of the two-dimensional sequence images can help the doctor understand the clinical situation of the body tissue, therefore improve the accuracy of diagnosis. In this paper, Ray Casting method is used to ...

    6. DeSpecNet: a CNN-based method for speckle reduction in retinal optical coherence tomography images

      DeSpecNet: a CNN-based method for speckle reduction in retinal optical coherence tomography images
      Speckle is a major quality degrading factor in optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. In this work we propose a new deep learning network for speckle reduction in retinal OCT images, termed DeSpecNet. Unlike traditional algorithms, the model can learn from training data instead of manually selecting parameters such as noise level. The proposed deep convolutional neural network (CNN) applies strategies including residual learning, shortcut connection, batch normalization and leaky rectified ...

      A New Approach for the Segmentation of Three Distinct Retinal Capillary Plexuses Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose : To segment three distinct retinal capillary plexuses by using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods : This prospective study included 30 eyes of 15 healthy subjects. En face OCTA images generated by the AngioPlex platform were manually segmented by the progressive matching method to the superficial, middle, and deep capillary plexuses (SCP, MCP, and DCP, respectively). The estimated position of each plexus relative to the reference line was calculated. Vascular ...

      A RESNET-BASED UNIVERSAL METHOD FOR SPECKLE REDUCTION IN OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY IMAGES
      In this work we propose a ResNet-based universal method for speckle reduction in optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The proposed model contains 3 main modules: Convolution-BN-ReLU, Branch and Residual module. Unlike traditional algorithms, the model can learn from training data instead of selecting parameters manually such as noise level.

    11. Nondestructive Measurement of Conformal Coating Thickness on Printed Circuit Board with Ultra-high Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

      Nondestructive Measurement of Conformal Coating Thickness on Printed Circuit Board with Ultra-high Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography
      Conformal coating (CC) is widely used to protect printed circuit board (PCB) from corrosion, mould growth and electrical failures. To ensure an effective protection, the thickness of the conformal coating layer needs to be well controlled. However, to date, the coating thickness is usually measured in a destructive way under microscopes. In this study, we proposed to use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure the CC thickness nondestructively. Specifically, to ...

      Imaging cellular structures of atherosclerotic coronary arteries using circumferentially scanning micro-optical coherence tomography fiber probe ex vivo
      Development and progression of coronary atherosclerotic lesions is mediated by a number of cellular components, which are not readily visualized using the current clinical investigation tools. Visualizing these cellular components in situ and in vivo may allow early detection of the vulnerable plaques, with implications for coronary artery disease (CAD) therapy and for the prevention of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In this study, we have developed a fiber-optic micro-optical coherence ...

      Speckle noise reduction in optical coherence tomography images based on edge-sensitive cGAN
      Speckle noise in optical coherence tomography (OCT) impairs both the visual quality and the performance of automatic analysis. Edge preservation is an important issue for speckle reduction. In this paper, we propose an end-to-end framework for simultaneous speckle reduction and contrast enhancement for retinal OCT images based on the conditional generative adversarial network (cGAN). The edge loss function is added to the final objective so that the model is sensitive ...

      Surrogate-assisted Retinal OCT Image Classification Based on Convolutional Neural Networks
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is becoming one of the most important modalities for the noninvasive assessment of retinal eye diseases. As the number of acquired OCT volumes increases, automating the OCT image analysis is becoming increasingly relevant. In this paper, we propose a surrogate-assisted classification method to classify retinal OCT images automatically based on convolutional neural networks (CNNs). Image denoising is first performed to reduce the noise. Thresholding and morphological ...

      Extending axial focus of optical coherence tomography using parallel multiple aperture synthesis
      Compromising the inherent trade-off between transverse resolution and depth of focus (DOF) remains a long-standing issue in optical coherence tomography (OCT). In this work, we report a novel techniqueparallel multiple aperture synthesis (pMAS) to simultaneously generate multiple optical apertures in an OCT sample arm by employing a two-surface coated mirror. In the proposed pMAS, the DOF is extended by a factor of 16.49 without sacrificing the transverse resolution for ...
