    2. Melanin concentration and depolarization metrics measurement by polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Melanin concentration and depolarization metrics measurement by polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Imaging of melanin in the eye is important as the melanin is structurally associated with some ocular diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration. Although optical coherence tomography (OCT) cannot distinguish tissues containing the melanin from other tissues intrinsically, polarization-sensitive OCT (PS-OCT) can detect the melanin through spatial depolarization of the backscattered light from the melanin granules. Entropy is one of the depolarization metrics that can be used to detect malanin ...

    5. Live imaging and functional changes of the inner ear in an animal model of Meniere’s disease

      Live imaging and functional changes of the inner ear in an animal model of Meniere’s disease
      The symptoms of Menieres disease (MD) are generally considered to be related to endolymphatic hydrops (EH). There are many recent reports supporting the possibility that vasopressin (VP) is closely linked to the formation of EH in Menieres disease. Based on this, we developed a clinically relevant animal model of Menieres disease in which a VP type 2 receptor agonist was administered after electrocauterization of the endolymphatic sac. We report live ...

    7. Frequency of hypotonic maculopathy observed by spectral domain optical coherence tomography in post glaucoma filtration surgery eyes

      Frequency of hypotonic maculopathy observed by spectral domain optical coherence tomography in post glaucoma filtration surgery eyes
      Purpose To report the frequency of post glaucoma filtration surgery hypotonic maculopathy determined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods A cross-sectional retrospective observational study. Post glaucoma filtration surgery patients whose intraocular pressures (IOP) achieved 30% reduction from baseline or was controlled to IOP 14 mm Hg and had SD-OCT images and fundus photographs were enrolled. Hypotonic maculopathy was diagnosed independently on SD-OCT images and on fundus photographs. Results ...

    8. Comparison of post‐stent optical coherence tomography findings: Layered versus non‐layered culprit lesions

      Comparison of post‐stent optical coherence tomography findings: Layered versus non‐layered culprit lesions
      Objectives This study aimed to investigate the vascular response of lesions with a layered phenotype. Background Recent studies have shown that layered plaques at culprit lesions detected by optical coherence tomography (OCT) have greater plaque burden and more inflammatory features than non‐layered plaques. Methods This is a retrospective observational study. A total of 193 target lesions from 193 patients [100 patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and 93 with ...

    9. OCT-Based Management of Nilotinib-Associated CAD in a Patient With Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

      OCT-Based Management of Nilotinib-Associated CAD in a Patient With Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
      Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative disorder of pluripotent hematopoietic stem cells caused by Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase, the product of the Philadelphia chromosome. Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have dramatically improved the prognosis of patients with CML (1). Although w 20% of patients with CML develop intolerance or resistance to the first Bcr-Abl TKI, imatinib mesylate, several second-generation TKIs, including nilotinib, dasatinib, and bosutinib, have overcome this issue (2 ...

    13. Visualizing dynamics of angiogenic sprouting from a three-dimensional microvasculature model using stage-top optical coherence tomography

      Visualizing dynamics of angiogenic sprouting from a three-dimensional microvasculature model using stage-top optical coherence tomography
      Three-dimensional (3D)in vitromicrovasculature in a polydimethylsiloxane-based microdevice was developed as a physiologically relevant model of angiogenesis. The angiogenic process is monitored using stage-top optical coherence tomography (OCT). OCT allows non-invasive monitoring of the 3D structures of the prepared host microvasculature and sprouted neovasculature without fluorescence staining. OCT monitoring takes only a few minutes to scan through the several-millimetre scale range, which provides the advantage of rapid observation of living ...

    15. Optimization of a dispersion-tuned wavelength-swept fiber laser for optical coherence tomography

      Optimization of a dispersion-tuned wavelength-swept fiber laser for optical coherence tomography
      We optimized parameters of a dispersion-tuned wavelength-swept fiber laser by numerically analyzing dynamic characteristics. The optimized laser is experimentally demonstrated and applied to the swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) system. The dispersion-tuned wavelength-swept laser (DT-WSL) is a unique tunable fiber laser, whose lasing wavelength can be tuned rapidly without any mechanical tunable filters. Although the wavelength of a DT-WSL can be swept rapidly and widely, the broadening of the instantaneous ...
