    5. Quantitative multi-contrast in vivo mouse imaging with polarization diversity optical coherence tomography and angiography

      Quantitative multi-contrast in vivo mouse imaging with polarization diversity optical coherence tomography and angiography
      Retinal microvasculature and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) play vital roles in maintaining the health and metabolic activity of the eye. Visualization of these retina structures is essential for pre-clinical studies of vision-robbing diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). We have developed a quantitative multi-contrast polarization diversity OCT and angiography (QMC-PD-OCTA) system for imaging and visualizing pigment in the RPE using degree of polarization uniformity (DOPU), along with flow ...

    8. Imaging intracellular motion with dynamic micro-optical coherence tomography

      Imaging intracellular motion with dynamic micro-optical coherence tomography
      This paper describes a new technology that uses 1-m-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) to obtain cross-sectional images of intracellular dynamics with dramatically enhanced image contrast. This so-called dynamic OCT (d-OCT) is accomplished by acquiring a time series of OCT images and conducting power frequency analysis of the temporal fluctuations that arise from intracellular motion on a pixel-per-pixel basis. Here, we demonstrate d-OCT imaging of freshly excised human esophageal and cervical ...

    9. Detecting human articular cartilage degeneration in its early stage with polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Detecting human articular cartilage degeneration in its early stage with polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Detecting articular cartilage (AC) degeneration in its early stage plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoarthritis (OA). Polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is sensitive to the alteration and disruption of collagen organization that happens during OA progression. This study proposes an effective OA evaluating method based on PS-OCT imaging. A slope-based analysis is applied on the phase retardation images to segment articular cartilage into three zones ...

    13. Etching-enabled extreme miniaturization of graded-index fiber-based optical coherence tomography probes

      Etching-enabled extreme miniaturization of graded-index fiber-based optical coherence tomography probes
      We introduced and validated a method to miniaturize graded-index (GRIN) fiber-based optical coherence tomography (OCT) probes down to 70m in diameter. The probes consist in an assembly of single-mode (SM), coreless (CL), and graded-index (GRIN) fibers. We opted for a probe design enabling controlled size reduction by hydrogen fluoride etching. The fabrication approach prevents nonuniform etching for both the GRIN and SM fiber components, while it requires no probe polishing ...

    16. Slope-based segmentation of articular cartilage using polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography phase retardation image

      Slope-based segmentation of articular cartilage using polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography phase retardation image
      A segmentation method based on phase retardation measurements from polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is developed to differentiate the structural zones of articular cartilage. The organization of collagen matrix in articular cartilage varies over the different structural zones, generating different tissue birefringence. Analyzing the slope of the accumulated phase retardation at different depths can detect the variation in tissue birefringence and be used to segment the structural zones. The method ...
