    4. Efficient Deep Learning-Based Automated Pathology Identification in Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography Images

      Efficient Deep Learning-Based Automated Pathology Identification in Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography Images
      We present an automatic method based on transfer learning for the identification of dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME) from retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The algorithm aims to improve the classification performance of retinal OCT images and shorten the training time. Firstly, we remove the last several layers from the pre-trained Inception V3 model and regard the remaining part as a fixed feature extractor ...

    5. Correction of saturation effects in endoscopic swept-source optical coherence tomography based on dual-channel detection

      Correction of saturation effects in endoscopic swept-source optical coherence tomography based on dual-channel detection
      Saturation artifacts that are commonly observed in endoscopic swept-source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) images cause image degradation and loss of image information. We present work on the correction of saturation effects in endoscopic SSOCT imaging. This method utilizes a broadband power divider with excellent pick-off flatness to divide the detected interference signal into the two channels of an analog-to-digital converter. Based on the precise calibration of the splitting ratio between ...

    6. Association of skin autofluorescence with plaque vulnerability evaluated by optical coherence tomography in patients with cardiovascular disease

      Association of skin autofluorescence with plaque vulnerability evaluated by optical coherence tomography in patients with cardiovascular disease
      Background and aims Accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) can be measured non-invasively by skin autofluorescence (SAF) whose values are elevated in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an intravascular imaging modality that could allow visualization of plaque composition. We aim to examine the relationship between SAF and plaque composition evaluated by frequency-domain OCT in patients with CVD. Methods We prospectively enrolled 108 patients with ...

    8. Cross-correlation photothermal optical coherence tomography with high effective resolution

      Cross-correlation photothermal optical coherence tomography with high effective resolution
      We developed a cross-correlation photothermal optical coherence tomography (CC-PTOCT) system for photothermal imaging with high lateral and axial resolution. The CC-PTOCT system consists of a phase-sensitive OCT system, a modulated pumping laser, and a digital cross-correlator. The pumping laser was used to induce the photothermal effect in the sample, causing a slight phase modulation of the OCT signals. A spatial phase differentiation method was employed to reduce phase accumulation. The ...

      Re: Kwon et al.: Subclassification of primary angle closure using anterior segment optical coherence tomography and ultrasound biomicroscopic parameters (Ophthalmology. 2017;124:1039-1047)
      To the Editor: We read with interest the article by Sung et al. 1 In this observational study, the authors concluded that the most distinct difference between the 2 subgroups in the cluster analysis was trabecularciliary process angle (TCA) and that the position of the ciliary body is important in subclassifying primary angle closure. However, there are several limitations that may affect the results. First, in the study, the authors ...

    10. The linear artifact in enhanced depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      The linear artifact in enhanced depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable ancillary test in the diagnosis and management of chorioretinal disease. The evaluation of choroid thickness using OCT has become the focus of clinical applications. We report a linear artifact that acts as a confounding factor in choroidal thickness measurements by enhanced depth imaging OCT. We found that the linear artifact is located stably at a depth of 485 m beneath the retinal pigment ...

    13. Contrast improvement for swept source optical coherence tomography image of sub-surface tissue

      Contrast improvement for swept source optical coherence tomography image of sub-surface tissue
      Swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) is an attractive biological imaging technology due to its advantages of simple setup and high imaging speed. As the light intensity attenuated rapidly in high scattering biological tissues, the contrast of OCT image will drop with depth. In this paper a new method was introduced to compensate the attenuation of imaging contrast in SSOCT. The interference signal was divided into two channels of analog ...

      Noninvasive monitoring of blood glucose concentration in diabetic patients with optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used to noninvasively monitor the blood glucose concentration (BGC) in healthy subjects with good accuracy and acceptable specificity. Based on this, the paper further considered the possibility of OCT in noninvasive monitoring BGC in diabetic patients. The OCT signal slope (OCTSS) changed with variation of BGC. The correlation coefficient R between BGC and OCTSS in diabetic patients was 0.91; while the correlation coefficient ...
