    2. Compact briefcase OCT system for point-of-care imaging

      Compact briefcase OCT system for point-of-care imaging
      A detector for characterizing at least one of a middle ear fluid and a middle ear biofilm includes a handheld probe outputting near-infrared and visible light, an OCT system to obtain A-scans at a plurality of positions on a tympanic membrane, and a camera to obtain surface sub-images at the plurality of positions. A-scans and surface sub-images are synchronized and the surface sub-images are mosaicked to generate a surface image ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography refraction and optical path length correction for image-guided corneal surgery

      Optical coherence tomography refraction and optical path length correction for image-guided corneal surgery
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) may be useful for guidance of ocular microsurgeries such as deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), a form of corneal transplantation that requires delicate insertion of a needle into the stroma to approximately 90% of the corneal thickness. However, visualization of the true shape of the cornea and the surgical tool during surgery is impaired in raw OCT volumes due to both light refraction at the corneal ...

    4. Differentiation of otitis media-causing bacteria and biofilms via Raman spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography

      Differentiation of otitis media-causing bacteria and biofilms via Raman spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography
      In the management of otitis media (OM), identification of causative bacterial pathogens and knowledge of their biofilm formation can provide more targeted treatment approaches. Current clinical diagnostic methods rely on the visualization of the tympanic membrane and lack real-time assessment of the causative pathogen(s) and the nature of any biofilm that may reside behind the membrane and within the middle ear cavity. In recent years, optical coherence tomography (OCT ...

    5. Automated classification of otitis media with OCT: augmenting pediatric image datasets with gold-standard animal model data

      Automated classification of otitis media with OCT: augmenting pediatric image datasets with gold-standard animal model data
      Otitis media (OM) is an extremely common disease that affects children worldwide. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a noninvasive diagnostic tool for OM, which can detect the presence and quantify the properties of middle ear fluid and biofilms. Here, the use of OCT data from the chinchilla, the gold-standard OM model for the human disease, is used to supplement a human image database to produce diagnostically relevant conclusions ...

    6. Coherent Optical Detection of Middle Ear Disease

      Coherent Optical Detection of Middle Ear Disease
      Otitis media (OM) is the most common diagnosis in pediatric patients seen for illness in the United States, affects 90% of all children, and is the most common indication for antimicrobial therapy and surgery in young children. Despite many attempts to improve diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, OM continues its highly prevalent impact on children and substantial ongoing morbidity. OM continues as the most common cause of hearing loss in children ...

    8. Diagnostic accuracy of optical coherence tomography for surgical margin assessment of feline injection-site sarcoma

      Diagnostic accuracy of optical coherence tomography for surgical margin assessment of feline injection-site sarcoma
      The invasive, locally aggressive nature of feline injection-site sarcomas (FISS) pose a unique challenge for surgeons to obtain complete margins with surgical excision. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), an imaging technology that uses light waves to generate real-time views of tissue architecture, provides an emerging solution to this dilemma by allowing fast, high-resolution scanning of surgical margins. The purpose of this study was to use OCT to assess surgical margins of ...

    9. Handheld device for identification of microbiological constituents in the middle ear

      Handheld device for identification of microbiological constituents in the middle ear
      Methods and apparatus for identifying microbiological constituents in the middle ear. A spectrometer receives Raman-scattered light from the region of the tympanic membrane and resolves spectral features of the Raman-scattered light. A processor receives the interferometry signal and the Raman signal, and generates a Raman spectrum of the tympanic membrane and material adjacent thereto. In some embodiments of the invention, low-coherence light and substantially monochromatic excitation light are directed onto ...

    10. Synthetic polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography by deep learning

      Synthetic polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography by deep learning
      Polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is a high-resolution label-free optical biomedical imaging modality that is sensitive to the microstructural architecture in tissue that gives rise to form birefringence, such as collagen or muscle fibers. To enable polarization sensitivity in an OCT system, however, requires additional hardware and complexity. We developed a deep-learning method to synthesize PS-OCT images by training a generative adversarial network (GAN) on OCT intensity and PS-OCT images ...
