    2. 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 ...

    6. Method and apparatus for OCT-based viscometry

      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 ...

    7. Automated classification platform for the identification of otitis media using optical coherence tomography

      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 ...

    8. Local wavefront mapping in tissue using computational adaptive optics OCT

      Local wavefront mapping in tissue using computational adaptive optics OCT
      The identification and correction of wavefront aberrations is often necessary to achieve high-resolution optical images of biological tissues, as imperfections in the optical system and the tissue itself distort the imaging beam. Measuring the localized wavefront aberration provides information on where the beam is distorted and how severely. We have recently developed a method to estimate the single-pass wavefront aberrations from complex optical coherence tomography (OCT) data. Using this method ...

    10. Interstitial magnetic thermotherapy dosimetry based on shear wave magnetomotive optical coherence elastography

      Interstitial magnetic thermotherapy dosimetry based on shear wave magnetomotive optical coherence elastography
      While magnetic thermoseeds are often utilized in interstitial magnetic thermotherapy (iMT) to enable localized tumor ablation, we propose to extend their use as the perturbative source in magnetomotive optical coherence elastography (MM-OCE) so that the heat-induced elasticity alterations can be theranostically probed. MM-OCE measurements were found to agree with indentation results. Tissue stiffening was visualized on iMT-treated porcine liver and canine soft tissue sarcoma specimens, where histology confirmed thermal damages ...

    11. Economical and compact briefcase spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system for primary care and point-of-care applications

      Economical and compact briefcase spectral-domain optical coherence tomography system for primary care and point-of-care applications
      Development of low-cost and portable optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems is of global interest in the OCT research community. Such systems enable utility broadly throughout a clinical facility, or in remote areas that often lack clinical infrastructure. We report the development and validation of a low-cost, portable briefcase spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system for point-of-care diagnostics in primary care centers and/or in remote settings. The self-contained briefcase OCT ...

    12. Intraoperative imaging of surgical margins of canine soft tissue sarcoma using optical coherence tomography

      Intraoperative imaging of surgical margins of canine soft tissue sarcoma using optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a rapid non‐invasive imaging technique that has shown high sensitivity for intraoperative surgical margin assessment in human breast cancer clinical trials. This promising technology has not been evaluated in veterinary medicine. The objective of this study was to correlate normal and abnormal histological features with OCT images for surgical margins from excised canine soft tissue sarcoma (STS) and to establish image evaluation criteria for ...
