      Software Implementation of a Combined Fluorescence and Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging System (Thesis)
      This paper serves as a detailed overview of the software developed for the Falloposcope endoscope being developed by the Jennifer Barton Optics Tissue Laboratory. The Falloposcope is designed for a screening procedure for early detection of ovarian cancer in the fallopian tubes. The software controls a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera to perform reflectance and fluorescence imaging, which serves to navigate the endoscope to the fallopian tubes and surveil suspicious tissue ...

    4. Evaluation of segmentation algorithms for optical coherence tomography images of ovarian tissue

      Evaluation of segmentation algorithms for optical coherence tomography images of ovarian tissue
      Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rate among all gynecologic cancers predominantly due to late diagnosis. Early detection of ovarian cancer can increase 5-year survival rates from 40% up to 92%, yet no reliable early detection techniques exist. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an emerging technique that provides depth-resolved, high-resolution images of biological tissue in real-time and demonstrates great potential for imaging of ovarian tissue. Mouse models are crucial to ...

    5. Three-dimensional texture analysis of optical coherence tomography images of ovarian tissue

      Three-dimensional texture analysis of optical coherence tomography images of ovarian tissue
      Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rate among all gynecologic cancers due to predominantly late diagnosis. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has been applied successfully to experimentally image the ovaries in vivo; however, a robust method for analysis is still required to provide quantitative diagnostic information. Recently, texture analysis has proved to be a useful tool for tissue characterization; unfortunately, existing work in the scope of OCT ovarian imaging is limited ...

    7. Structural and functional optical coherence tomography imaging of the colon (Thesis)

      Structural and functional optical coherence tomography imaging of the colon  (Thesis)
      Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains the second deadliest cancer in the United States, despite steady reduction in mortality rate over the last three decades. Colonoscopy is the gold-standard screening modality with high sensitivity and specificity to mature polyps. However, the miss rate for small ( 5 mm) lesions is estimated to be as high as 26%. Because the five-year survival rate for CRC detected at the local stage is 90%, there is ...

      Single lens system for forward-viewing navigation and scanning side-viewing optical coherence tomography
      The optical design for a dual modality endoscope based on piezo scanning fiber technology is presented including a novel technique to combine forward-viewing navigation and side viewing OCT. Potential applications include navigating body lumens such as the fallopian tube, biliary ducts and cardiovascular system. A custom cover plate provides a rotationally symmetric double reflection of the OCT beam to deviate and focus the OCT beam out the side of the ...
