    2. A marine biofilm flow cell for in situ screening marine fouling control coatings using optical coherence tomography

      A marine biofilm flow cell for in situ screening marine fouling control coatings using optical coherence tomography
      A novel fouling marine flow cell was designed and fitted with a clear plastic lid to allow real-time imaging of biofilms using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Marine biofilms were grown under controlled shear flow on coupons coated with 6 different biocidal antifouling coatings (SPC1, SPC2, SPC3, SPC4, CDP1 and CDP2, AkzoNobel) and one inert coating which contained no biocidal actives (NB-D) for 8 weeks. One set of coupons coated with ...

    3. Exclusion of Traumatic Anterior Capsule Laceration Using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

      Exclusion of Traumatic Anterior Capsule Laceration Using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography
      A woman in her 60s presented with a penetrating injury to the right cornea sustained on a plant. An examination revealed a small corneal laceration and a formed anterior chamber with minimal wound leakage. A possible defect of the anterior capsule was observed ( Figure , A). Anterior segment optical coherence tomography imaging was performed (SPECTRALIS; Heidelberg Engineering) that confirmed that the anterior capsule was intact ( Figure , B). She was treated with ...

    4. Pediatric Optical Coherence Tomography in Clinical Practice—Recent Progres

      Pediatric Optical Coherence Tomography in Clinical Practice—Recent Progres
      Purpose : Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized the diagnosis and management of adult retinal and optic nerve disease. Children were deprived of this technology until the recent development of handheld spectral-domain OCT (HH-SDOCT). In this article, we review the applications of OCT imaging in pediatric ophthalmology. Methods : This study was a review of the literature. Results : The acquisition and interpretation of pediatric tomograms differ significantly from those for adults, with ...

    5. Optic Nerve Head Development in Healthy Infants and Children Using Handheld Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optic Nerve Head Development in Healthy Infants and Children Using Handheld Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose To determine feasibility of optic nerve head (ONH) imaging and to characterize ONH development in full-term infants without sedation using handheld spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT). Design Prospective cross-sectional study. Participants Three hundred fifty-two children aged between 1 day and 13 years. Methods All participants were imaged using handheld SD OCT without sedation during a single scan session. The percentage of successful scans was calculated. Interexaminer reproducibility and ...

    7. High resolution Fourier domain Optical Coherence Tomography at 2 microns for painted objects

      High resolution Fourier domain Optical Coherence Tomography at 2 microns for painted objects
      Optical Coherence Tomography has been successfully applied to the non-invasive imaging of subsurface microstructure of a variety of materials from biological tissues to painted objects of art. One of the limitations of the technique is the low depth of penetration due to the strong scattering and absorption in the material. Previous studies found that for paint materials, the optimum window for large depth of penetration is around 2.2 microns ...

    8. High resolution Fourier domain optical coherence tomography in the 2 um wavelength range using a broadband supercontinuum source

      High resolution Fourier domain optical coherence tomography in the 2 um wavelength range using a broadband supercontinuum source
      A 220 nm bandwidth supercontinuum source in the two-micron wavelength range has been developed for use in a Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT) system. This long wavelength source serves to enhance probing depth in highly scattering material with low water content. We present results confirming improved penetration depth in high opacity paint samples while achieving the high axial resolution needed to resolve individual paint layers. This is the first ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis, monitoring and guiding of treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration: a systematic review and economic evaluation

      Optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis, monitoring and guiding of treatment for neovascular age-related macular degeneration: a systematic review and economic evaluation
      Background Age-related macular degeneration is the most common cause of sight impairment in the UK. In neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), vision worsens rapidly (over weeks) due to abnormal blood vessels developing that leak fluid and blood at the macula. Objectives To determine the optimal role of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in diagnosing people newly presenting with suspected nAMD and monitoring those previously diagnosed with the disease. Data sources Databases ...

      Feature Of The Week 11/30/14: Application of OCT to Imaging Subsurface Structure of Antarctic Krill
      Many small open ocean animals, such as Antarctic krill, are an important part of marine ecosystems. To discover what will happen to animals such as krill in a changing ocean, experiments are run in aquaria where conditions can be controlled to simulate water characteristics predicted to occur in the future. The response of individual animals to changing water conditions can be hard to observe, and with current observation techniques it ...
