    2. Optical coherence tomography control systems and methods

      Optical coherence tomography control systems and methods
      In part, the invention relates to methods, devices, and systems suitable for controlling a light source. The light source is configured for use in a data collection system such as an optical coherence tomography system. The light source can be controlled with a drive waveform. Linearizing and symmetrizing parameters of the light source such as forward and backward scan durations is achieved using a suitable drive waveform. Phase, amplitude, and ...

    3. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...

    4. Evaluation of the characterization of thrombi in vitro by optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of the characterization of thrombi in vitro by optical coherence tomography
      Aim The purpose of this study was to provide a new assessable method of the optical coherence tomography (OCT) in characterization of thrombi with different concentrations of red blood cell (RBC). Methods and results A series of thrombus models were constructed by using human blood in vitro. The thrombi were made by using human blood with different concentration of RBC (from 1% to 35%). Then tip of an FD-OCT catheter ...

    7. Impact of Age on Stent Strut Coverage and Neointimal Remodeling as Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Impact of Age on Stent Strut Coverage and Neointimal Remodeling as Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography
      Abstract: While older age associates with adverse percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) outcomes, detailed information relating age to stent strut coverage and neointimal characteristics is lacking. One hundred nineteen patients with 123 sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs) were divided into 3 groups: group A (55 years), group B (5665 years), and group C (65 years). At 6 and 12 months of follow-up, optical coherence tomography was performed to assess strut coverage and neointimal ...

    8. Low cost high efficiency signal interrogation for multi-channel optical coherence tomography

      Low cost high efficiency signal interrogation for multi-channel optical coherence tomography
      A signal interrogation system comprises an optical coupler to split input laser beam into a first laser beam as a power reference and a second laser beam, the optical coupler being coupled to a first path for the first laser beam and a second path for the second laser beam; an optical circulator disposed in the second path; a bi-directional optical switch disposed in the second path and having on ...

  2. About St. Jude Medical

    St. Jude Medical

    St. Jude Medical was acquired by Abbot in 2016.  St. Jude develops medical technology and services that focus on putting more control into the hands of those who treat cardiac, neurological and chronic pain patients worldwide.  St. Jude Medical is headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota and has four major focus areas that include: cardiac rhythm management, atrial fibrillation, cardiovascular and neuromodulation.  St. Jude acquired Lightlab Imaging in 2010. Lightlab makes intravascular OCT imaging products.

  3. Quotes about St. Jude Medical

    1. We are pleased to add this new growth platform to our cardiovascular business, especially in conjunction with our FFR platform, and we are excited by the many opportunities this acquisition creates for St. Jude Medical and LightLab, physician customers and their patients...We welcome LightLab and its employees to St. Jude Medical.
      Daniel J. Starks in St. Jude Medical to Acquire LightLab Imaging for $90M in Cash
    2. We are excited to join with a partner who shares our vision of improving patient outcomes and reducing health care costs through solutions which enable physicians to make earlier and more accurate treatment decisions... We believe St. Jude Medical's U.S. and international footprint, along with its existing FFR measurement technology, will accelerate growth for our industry-leading OCT technology.
