    2. Measuring intracellular motion in cancer cell using optical coherence tomography

      Measuring intracellular motion in cancer cell using optical coherence tomography
      In this study, we demonstrate that OCT speckle decorrelation techniques can be used to probe intracellular motion in cancer cells. Spheroids and cell pellets were used as a model to probe intracellular motion. ZnCl 2 was used to inhibit mitochondrial motion within the cells. The results reveal the changes in intracellular motion during the spheroid growth phase. Moreover, to modify the motion of mitochondria, cell pellet were exposed to ZnCl ...

    3. Comparison of different optical coherence tomography devices for diagnosis of non-melanoma skin cancer

      Comparison of different optical coherence tomography devices for diagnosis of non-melanoma skin cancer
      Purpose To compare the diagnostic imaging ability of three different optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices in non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Methods Thirty actinic keratoses (AKs) and 27 basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) of 29 patients were examined with three different OCT devices, VivoSight , Callisto and Skintell . Results Complete data sets were available for 16 BCCs and 10 AKs of 18 patients. All OCT devices were able to discriminate BCCs and AKs ...

    4. Compact, low dispersion, and low aberration adaptive optics scanning system

      Compact, low dispersion, and low aberration adaptive optics scanning system
      An adaptive optics scanning system using a beam projection module with four or more axes of motion that can project and control the position and angle of a beam of light to or from an adaptive optics element. The adaptive optics scanning system is compact in size, overcoming the challenges of a traditional lens and mirror based pupil relay design. The adaptive optics scanning system has little to no dispersion ...

    5. Feature Of The Week 10/25/2015: Imaging Pulse Wave Propagation in Human Retina using Full-Field Swept-Source OCT

      Feature Of The Week 10/25/2015: Imaging Pulse Wave Propagation in Human Retina using Full-Field Swept-Source OCT
      We demonstrate a new noninvasive method to assess biomechanical properties of the retinal vascular system. Phase-sensitive full-field swept-source optical coherence tomography (PhS-FF-SS-OCT) is used to investigate retinal vascular dynamics at unprecedented temporal resolution. The motion of retinal tissue that is induced by expansion of the vessels therein is measured with an accuracy of about 10 nm. The pulse shapes of arterial and venous pulsations, their temporal delays, as well as ...

    6. Feature Of The Week 10/18/2015: Characterising Kiwifruit (Actinidia sp.) Near Skin Cellular Structures using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Feature Of The Week 10/18/2015: Characterising Kiwifruit (Actinidia sp.) Near Skin Cellular Structures using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Pre-harvest growing conditions during the development of fruit have impacts on fruit quality at the time of harvest and during storage. These impacts may result in differences in the skin properties of the fruit and some sub-surface cellular structural changes, which have potential effects on postharvest fruit quality and storability. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-destructive imaging method that enables acquisition of three-dimensional (3D) images of sub-surface structures of ...

    7. Autofocus System

      Autofocus System
      An autofocus apparatus is capable of detecting the position of a sample on a microscope. The sample may consist of a specimen mounted between a microscope slide and coverslip or specimens within a well plate. The device tracks the position of a sample by identifying refractive index boundaries through Fresnel reflections. A change in refractive index can correspond to the top and bottom of a coverslip, the top of a ...
