    2. Resolution characteristics of optical coherence tomography for dental use

      Resolution characteristics of optical coherence tomography for dental use
      OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to clarify resolution characteristics of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for dental use. METHODS: Two types of swept-source OCT machines (SS-OCTs) were employed in this study. To clarify their resolution characteristics, we newly developed a glass chart device with a ladder pattern of wavelengths, which ranged from (4 x 2) m to (1024 x 2) m, as well as a star-target pattern, a grid ...

    3. Feature Of The Week 9/13/09: In vivo imaging of human labial glands using advanced Optical Coherence Tomography

      Feature Of The Week 9/13/09: In vivo imaging of human labial glands using advanced Optical Coherence Tomography
      Feature Of The Week 9/13/09: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a high-resolution noninvasive clinical imaging application. Conventionally, minor salivary gland biopsy has been considered to be the cornerstone of the diagnosis of Sjögren syndrome. However, a minor salivary gland biopsy is an invasive examination that may cause inconvenience and a risk of complications to the patient. The purpose of this study was to show OCT images ...

    4. In vivo imaging of human labial glands using advanced optical coherence tomography

      Objective Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a high-resolution noninvasive clinical imaging application. The purpose of this study was to show OCT images of human labial glands obtained using a swept-source (SS) OCT system. Study design Labial gland OCT imaging was carried out using our new SS-OCT system for 5 healthy volunteers using a hand-held in vivo OCT scanning probe. The labial tissue was scanned in a superior to ...

    5. Evaluation of oral vascular anomalies using optical coherence tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new method of biomedical imaging that can generate high-resolution, cross-sectional images of microstructures. The purpose of this study was to present the first OCT images of oral vascular anomalies using a new advanced OCT scanner that we have developed, and to discuss the application of our system for oral soft tissues. Knowledge of the size and area of the vascular structures can be useful ...
