    2. Automatic Proximal Airway Volume Segmentation Using Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Inhalation Injury

      Automatic Proximal Airway Volume Segmentation Using Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Inhalation Injury
      Background Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a severe form of acute lung injury with a mortality rate of up to 40%. Early management of ARDS has been difficult due to the lack of sensitive imaging tools and robust analysis software. We previously designed an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system to evaluate mucosa thickness (MT) post smoke inhalation, but the analysis relied on manual segmentation. The aim of this study ...

    3. Digital holographic adaptive optics for ocular imaging: proof of principle

      Digital holographic adaptive optics for ocular imaging: proof of principle
      An adaptive optics (AO) ocular imaging system is proposed that is based on the principles of digital holography and dispenses with the wavefront sensor and wavefront modulator of conventional AO systems, thus reducing the optomechanical complexity and cost while increasing speed and resolution. Numerical simulations and proof-of-principle experiments are presented that demonstrate the feasibility.

    5. Blood Flow Dynamics of One Cardiac Cycle and Relationship to Mechanotransduction and Trabeculation during Heart Looping

      Blood Flow Dynamics of One Cardiac Cycle and Relationship to Mechanotransduction and Trabeculation during Heart Looping
      Analyses of form-function relationships during heart looping are directly related to technological advances. Recent advances in 4-D optical coherence tomography (OCT) permit observations of cardiac dynamics at high speed acquisition rates and high resolution. Real-time observation of the avian stage 13 looping heart reveals that interactions between the endocardial and myocardial compartments are more complex than previously depicted. Here we applied 4-D OCT to elucidate the relationships of the endocardium ...
