    3. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging of the posterior segment of the eye in the retinal dysplasia and degeneration chicken, an animal model of inherited retinal degeneration

      Spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging of the posterior segment of the eye in the retinal dysplasia and degeneration chicken, an animal model of inherited retinal degeneration

      Objective To investigate qualitative and quantitative differences in the structure of the posterior segment of the eye in 1-day post-hatch and 12-month-old retinal dysplasia and degeneration (rdd) and wild-type chickens. Animal studied Retinal dysplasia and degeneration and wild-type chickens. Procedure Using a commercially available spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system, 15° horizontal line scans were performed in both eyes of 24 live birds. Qualitative differences in retinal lamination and choroidal structure were investigated, and retinal and choroidal thickness were measured. Results Progressive retinal thinning with loss of outer retinal lamination and changes in the appearance of the choroid were ...

    4. Optical coherence tomography in the assessment of suspicious oral lesions: An immediate ex vivo study

      Optical coherence tomography in the assessment of suspicious oral lesions: An immediate ex vivo study

      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an evolving optical technology that is capable of delivering real-time, high-resolution signatures of tissue. Objectives The purpose of this immediate ex vivo prospective clinical study was: (1) to assess the sensitivity and specificity of OCT on biopsy material in identifying potentially malignant and malignant oral lesions, (2) to determine the inter-observer agreement in the analysis of specific image parameters, and (3) to find out the oral epithelial thickness for different pathology groups. Materials and methods This prospective study involved 125 suspicious oral lesions from 125 patients. The lesions were surgically biopsied and subjected to ...

    5. Structural validation of oral mucosal tissue using optical coherence tomography

      Structural validation of oral mucosal tissue using optical coherence tomography

      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive optical technology using near-infrared light to produce cross-sectional tissue images with lateral resolution. Objectives The overall aims of this study was to generate a bank of normative and pathological OCT data of the oral tissues to allow identification of cellular structures of normal and pathological processes with the aim to create a diagnostic algorithm which can be used in the early detection of oral disorders. Material and methods Seventy-three patients with 78 suspicious oral lesions were referred for further management to the UCLH Head and Neck Centre, London. The entire cohort had ...

  2. About University of Leeds

    University of Leeds

    University of Leeds is a British Redbrick university located in the city of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Originally named the Yorkshire College of Science and later simply the Yorkshire College, it incorporated the Leeds School of Medicine and became part of the federal Victoria University alongside Owens College (which eventually became the University of Manchester) and University College Liverpool (which became the University of Liverpool). In 1904, a royal charter was granted to the University of Leeds by King Edward VII.
