    2. 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 ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. 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 ...

    6. 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 ...

    9. Intraoperative breast cancer margin detection via polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Intraoperative breast cancer margin detection via polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Current standard-of-care for breast conserving surgery (BCS) procedures relies on post-operative histopathology to provide a microscopic view and assessment of surgical margins. To avoid high reoperation rates there has been a great interest in developing new imaging solutions to visualize tissue intraoperatively, and provide real-time feedback on the margin status. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution label-free, imaging technology that is the optical analogue to ultrasound imaging, except images ...

    11. Magnetomotive Displacement of the Tympanic Membrane using Magnetic Nanoparticles: Toward Enhancement of Sound Perception

      Magnetomotive Displacement of the Tympanic Membrane using Magnetic Nanoparticles: Toward Enhancement of Sound Perception
      Objective: A novel hearing-aid scheme using magnetomotive nanoparticles (MNPs) as transducers in the tympanic membrane (TM) is proposed, aiming to noninvasively and directly induce a modulated vibration on the TM. Methods: In this feasibility study, iron-oxide (Fesub3/subOsub4/sub) nanoparticles were applied on ex vivo rat TM tissues and allowed to diffuse over ~2 hr. Subsequently, magnetic force was exerted on the MNP-laden TM via a programmable electromagnetic solenoid to ...

    12. Wavefront measurement using computational adaptive optics

      Wavefront measurement using computational adaptive optics
      In many optical imaging applications, it is necessary to correct for aberrations to obtain high quality images. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides access to the amplitude and phase of the backscattered optical field for three-dimensional (3D) imaging samples. Computational adaptive optics (CAO) modifies the phase of the OCT data in the spatial frequency domain to correct optical aberrations without using a deformable mirror, as is commonly done in hardware-based adaptive ...

    14. Review of optical coherence tomography in oncology

      Review of optical coherence tomography in oncology
      The application of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the field of oncology has been prospering over the past decade. OCT imaging has been used to image a broad spectrum of malignancies, including those arising in the breast, brain, bladder, the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and reproductive tracts, the skin, and oral cavity, among others. OCT imaging has initially been applied for guiding biopsies, for intraoperatively evaluating tumor margins and lymph nodes, and ...

      Noninvasive in vivo optical coherence tomography tracking of chronic otitis media in pediatric subjects after surgical intervention
      In an institutional review board-approved study, 25 pediatric subjects diagnosed with chronic or recurrent otitis media were observed over a period of six months with optical coherence tomography (OCT). Subjects were followed throughout their treatment at the initial patient evaluation and preoperative consultation, surgery (intraoperative imaging), and postoperative follow-up, followed by an additional six months of records-based observation. At each time point, the tympanic membrane (at the light reflex region ...
