    3. Functional optical coherence tomography enables in vivo physiological assessment of retinal rod and cone photoreceptors

      Functional optical coherence tomography enables in vivo physiological assessment of retinal rod and cone photoreceptors
      Transient intrinsic optical signal (IOS) changes have been observed in retinal photoreceptors, suggesting a unique biomarker for eye disease detection. However, clinical deployment of IOS imaging is challenging due to unclear IOS sources and limited signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). Here, by developing high spatiotemporal resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) and applying an adaptive algorithm for IOS processing, we were able to record robust IOSs from single-pass measurements. Transient IOSs, which might ...

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography of Dialysis Graft after Angioplasty

      Optical Coherence Tomography of Dialysis Graft after Angioplasty
      Neointimal hyperplasia, the major cause of arteriovenous graft (AVG) stenosis, is not directly visualized by angiography. A 60-year-old woman on hemodialysis presented with a clotted AVG 30 days after its creation. Following percutaneous thrombectomy, angiography revealed severe ( 50%) stenosis at the graft (G)-vein (V) anastomosis (arrow in Fig 1 ). Optical coherence tomography performed using an intravascular Dragonfly catheter (St. Jude Medical, Westford, Massachusetts) delineated the intima in bright yellow.

    9. Optical Coherent Tomography to guide below-the-knee endovascular interventions

      Optical Coherent Tomography to guide below-the-knee endovascular interventions
      Peripheral arterial disease remains a common cause of leg amputations causing significant morbidity and mortality. Data regarding below-the-knee endovascular interventions is scarce while long-term patency rates via different endovascular revascularization modalities remain limited. OCT offers excellent three dimension endothelial visualization; however its value to guide peripheral interventions has not been studied. We describe the use of OCT to guide endovascular below-the-knee interventions in order to achieve excellent OCT results.

    10. A Functional Anatomic Defect of the Cystic Fibrosis Airway

      A Functional Anatomic Defect of the Cystic Fibrosis Airway
      Rationale: The mechanisms underlying cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease pathogenesis are unknown. Objective: To establish mechanisms linking anion transport with the functional microanatomy, we evaluated normal and CF piglet trachea, as well as adult swine trachea in the presence of selective anion inhibitors. Methods: We investigated airway functional microanatomy using micro-optical coherence tomography, a new imaging modality that concurrently quantifies multiple functional parameters of airway epithelium in a co-localized fashion ...

      Use of Optical Coherence Tomography During Superficial Femoral Artery Interventions
      Superficial femoral artery (SFA) disease accounts for approximately 40% of the symptomatic peripheral arterial disease and remains a common cause of critical limb ischemia and lower-extremity amputation. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been extensively studied in the coronary circulation; however, its use in the peripheral arterial circulation is scarce. We present two cases of OCT use as an ancillary imaging tool during SFA endovascular interventions

  2. About University of Alabama

    University of Alabama

    The University of Alabama (also known as Alabama, UA, or colloquially as 'Bama) is a public coeducational university located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA. Founded in 1831, UA is the flagship school of the University of Alabama System. Within Alabama, it is often called the Capstone. UA is the senior and the largest in terms of enrollment of the state's major research universities, the others being academic and athletic rival Auburn University and fellow UA System institutions the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Outside the state, it is well known for the fact that its athletic teams are nicknamed the "Crimson Tide" (crimson being one of the school colors).   The University of Alabama offers programs of study in 12 academic divisions leading to bachelor's, master's, Education Specialist, and doctoral degrees. The only publicly-supported law school in Alabama is at UA. Other academic programs unavailable elsewhere in Alabama include doctoral programs in anthropology, library and information studies, metallurgical and material engineering, music, Romance languages, and social work.  As of fall 2007, Alabama has an enrollment of 25,580 students and its president is Dr. Robert Witt. The University of Alabama has the highest ranking in the 2008 edition of the US News and World Report: America's Best Colleges of any university in the state of Alabama."
