    4. Clinical Implications of Suspended Scattering Particles in Motion Observed by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Clinical Implications of Suspended Scattering Particles in Motion Observed by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between suspended scattering particles in motion (SSPiM) in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and treatment response in diabetic macular edema (DME). We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients diagnosed with DME who had undergone intravitreal injection. The optical density ratio (ODR) of the intraretinal cyst and the numbers of hyperreflective foci from OCT images and SSPiM from OCTA images ...

    6. Assessing the Effect of Middle Ear Effusions on Wideband Acoustic Immittance Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Assessing the Effect of Middle Ear Effusions on Wideband Acoustic Immittance Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objectives: Wideband acoustic immittance (WAI) noninvasively assesses middle ear function by measuring the sound conduction over a range of audible frequencies. Although several studies have shown the potential of WAI for detecting the presence of middle ear effusions (MEEs), determining the effects of MEE type and amount on WAI in vivo has been challenging due to the anatomical location of middle ear cavity. The purpose of this study is to ...

    7. Method and apparatus for obtaining a three-dimensional map of tympanic membrane thickness

      Method and apparatus for obtaining a three-dimensional map of tympanic membrane thickness
      Methods and apparatus for combining a low coherence interferometry (LCI) technique for single-point thickness measurement with videootoscopy for recording the image of a tissue such as the tympanic membrane (TM). TM thickness distribution maps are obtained by mapping the LCI imaging sites onto an anatomically accurate wide-field image of the TM, generated by mosaicking a sequence of multiple small field-of-view video-otoscopy images.

    8. Comparison between optical coherence tomographic and histopathologic appearances of artifacts caused by common surgical conditions and instrumentation

      Comparison between optical coherence tomographic and histopathologic appearances of artifacts caused by common surgical conditions and instrumentation
      Objective To document the appearance of artifacts created by commonly encountered surgical conditions and instrumentation on optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to compare these findings with histopathology. Study design Ex vivo study. Animals Five canine cadavers. Methods Skin, subcutaneous fat, skeletal muscle, and fascia samples were obtained from fresh canine cadavers. Blood pooling, hemostatic crushing, scalpel blade cut, monopolar electrosurgery, bipolar vessel sealing device, and ultrasonic energy surgical artifacts were ...

      Method and apparatus for OCT-based viscometry
      Methods and apparatus for ascertaining a relative viscosity characterizing a fluid sample. The fluid sample is illuminated through a scattering membrane adjacent to the fluid with broadband radiation. Scattering from particles within the fluid sample characterized by a distribution of characteristic dimensions spanning at least two orders of magnitude is detected, generating a detector signal as a function of depth relative to a specified surface of the scattering membrane at ...

      Automated classification platform for the identification of otitis media using optical coherence tomography
      The diagnosis and treatment of otitis media (OM), a common childhood infection, is a significant burden on the healthcare system. Diagnosis relies on observer experience via otoscopy, although for non-specialists or inexperienced users, accurate diagnosis can be difficult. In past studies, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used to quantitatively characterize disease states of OM, although with the involvement of experts to interpret and correlate image-based indicators of infection with ...
