    2. Impact of plaque morphology on creatine kinase-MB elevation in patients with elective stent implantation

      Impact of plaque morphology on creatine kinase-MB elevation in patients with elective stent implantation
      Abstract: Backgrounds: The association between percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and subsequent myonecrosis has been widely recognized, and worse prognosis has been reported among patients with elevated post-PCI biomarkers. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to study the relationship between pre-PCI plaque morphology and post-PCI creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) elevation.Methods: One hundred and twenty-five patients with normal pre-PCI CK-MB levels underwent OCT examination before nonemergency stent implantation. Patients were divided into ...

    3. Validation of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) for the diagnosis of occlusal caries

      Validation of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) for the diagnosis of occlusal caries
      Objectives Detection of pit and fissure caries by current methods is not highly sensitive. In this laboratory study, we examined the use of a swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) as a diagnostic tool for occlusal caries. Methods One-hundred and eleven investigation sites of occlusal fissures were selected from 62 extracted teeth and examined visually using conventional dental equipment without any magnification. SS-OCT observations were carried out on the same locations ...

    6. 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 ...

    7. 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 ...

    8. 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 ...
