    2. 2D Ultrasonic Array-based Optical Coherence Elastography

      2D Ultrasonic Array-based Optical Coherence Elastography
      Acoustic radiation force optical coherence elastography (ARF-OCE) has been successfully implemented to characterize the biomechanical properties of soft tissues such as the cornea and the retina with high resolution using single-element ultrasonic transducers for ARF excitation. Most currently proposed OCE techniques, such as air-puff and ARF, have less capability to control the spatiotemporal information of the induced region of deformation, resulting in limited accuracy and low temporal resolution of the ...

    3. Advances in Doppler optical coherence tomography and angiography

      Advances in Doppler optical coherence tomography and angiography
      Since the first demonstration of Doppler optical coherence tomography (OCT) in 1997, several functional extensions of Doppler OCT have been developed, including velocimetry, angiogram, and optical coherence elastography. These functional techniques have been widely used in research and clinical applications, particularly in ophthalmology. Here, we review the principles, representative methods, and applications of different Doppler OCT techniques, followed by discussion on the innovations, limitations, and future directions of each of ...

    4. Combining Deep Learning With Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging to Determine Scalp Hair and Follicle Counts

      Combining Deep Learning With Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging to Determine Scalp Hair and Follicle Counts
      Background and Objectives One of the challenges in developing effective hair loss therapies is the lack of reliable methods to monitor treatment response or alopecia progression. In this study, we propose the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and automated deep learning to non‐invasively evaluate hair and follicle counts that may be used to monitor the success of hair growth therapy more accurately and efficiently. Study Design/Materials and ...

    5. Effect of panretinal photocoagulation on macular vasculature using optical coherence tomography angiography

      Effect of panretinal photocoagulation on macular vasculature using optical coherence tomography angiography
      Background: To evaluate the changes of macular vascular density in the superficial capillary (SCP) and the deep capillary plexus (DCP), foveal avascular area (FAZ), choroidal flow, and macular thickness after pan-retinal photocoagulation (PRP). Methods: In this prospective interventional non-comparative case series, patients with very severe nonproliferative (NPDR) and early proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) and no significant macular edema who were candidates for pan-retinal photocoagulation underwent measurement of corrected distance visual ...

    6. Imaging of in vivo pseudoxanthoma elasticum via multiphoton microscopy and optical coherence tomography

      Imaging of in vivo pseudoxanthoma elasticum via multiphoton microscopy and optical coherence tomography
      Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is an autosomal recessive disorder of abnormal elastic tissue deposition and calcification. 1 PXE primarily affects the elastic fibers in the dermis of the skin, Bruch membrane of the eye, and the media and intima of mid-sized arteries. The skin findings may present as small yellow, orange, or cream-colored papules, resembling plucked-chicken skin or cobblestone. The skin on the neck and skin flexures may be lax and ...

    7. Coupling Pressure Sensing with Optical Coherence Tomography to Evaluate the Internal Nasal Valve

      Coupling Pressure Sensing with Optical Coherence Tomography to Evaluate the Internal Nasal Valve
      Purpose: To evaluate endoscopic long-range optical coherence tomography system combined with a pressure sensor to concurrently measure internal nasal valve cross-sectional area and intraluminal pressure. Methods: A pressure sensor was constructed using an Arduino platform and calibrated using a limiter-controlled vacuum system and industrial absolute pressure gauge. Long-range optical coherence tomography imaging and pressure transduction were performed concurrently in the naris of eight healthy adult subjects during normal respiration and ...

    10. Ultrahigh-sensitive optical coherence elastography

      Ultrahigh-sensitive optical coherence elastography
      The phase stability of an optical coherence elastography (OCE) system is the key determining factor for achieving a precise elasticity measurement, and it can be affected by the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), timing jitters in the signal acquisition process, and fluctuations in the optical path difference (OPD) between the sample and reference arms. In this study, we developed an OCE system based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) with a common-path ...

    11. Optical Coherence Tomography in the Evaluation of the Scalp and Hair: Common Features and Clinical Utility

      Optical Coherence Tomography in the Evaluation of the Scalp and Hair: Common Features and Clinical Utility
      Background and Objective Early diagnosis and treatment of hair loss disorders is vital in providing patients with improved psychological outcomes. Non‐invasive imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) may be useful in characterizing and managing alopecia. Despite expanding clinical applications of OCT in dermatology, guidelines demonstrating in vivo features of normal and alopecic scalp images remain scant. This pilot study aims to provide an atlas of OCT findings of healthy ...

      Skin Imaging to Inform Laser Treatments
      The purpose of this study is to obtain information (such as lesion depth, depth of the most superficial part of the lesion, and the size and density of blood vessels) with the assistance of an imaging device, and use this information to assist in selection of laser settings for the treatment of skin conditions. The imaging modality is called Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Multiple laser modalities will be used, including ...

      Beating Cancer - One Patient at a Time
      Like most people, John Gifford wasn't looking forward to a colonoscopy when he arrived on the UCI Medical Center campus in Orange in 2018. The Riverside man, 65, was concerned about his family history of colorectal cancer and had dutifully scheduled an appointment with UCI Health gastroenterologist Dr. William Karnes. The exam turned out to be intriguing and enlightening - a far cry from what one expects during a colonoscopy ...

      Optical Vaginal Biopsy Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objective Optical coherence tomography is a noninvasive technology that visualizes tissue microstructure with high spatial resolution. We designed a novel vaginal system that demonstrates a clear distinction between vaginal tissues planes. In this study, we sought to compare vaginal tomographic images of premenopausal, perimenopausal, and postmenopausal women, demonstrate feasibility of tracking vaginal tissue changes after treatment with fractional-pixel CO 2 laser therapy, and obtain a histologic correlation of these findings ...

    15. Extended imaging depth of en-face optical coherence tomography based on fast measurement of a reflection matrix by wide-field heterodyne detection

      Extended imaging depth of en-face optical coherence tomography based on fast measurement of a reflection matrix by wide-field heterodyne detection
      Multiple light scattering in biomedical tissue limits the penetration depth of optical imaging systems such as optical coherence tomography. To increase the imaging depth in scattering media, a computational method based on coherent reflection matrix measurement has been developed using low coherence interferometry. The complex reflection matrix is obtained via point-by-point scanning followed by a phase-shifting method; then singular value decomposition is used to retrieve the singly back-scattered light. However ...

      Optical coherence elastography (OCE) method under acoustic radiation force excitation using OCT doppler variance methods and OCT correlation-based methods
      A system for imaging and quantifying shear wave and shear modulus under orthogonal acoustic radiation force (ARF) excitation using the OCT Doppler variance apparatus. The ARF perpendicular or with at least a perpendicular component to the OCT beam is produced by a remote ultrasonic transducer. The OCT Doppler variance apparatus, which is sensitive to the transverse vibration, is used to measure the ARF induced vibration. For analysis of the shear ...
