    2. Non‐invasive multimodal imaging by integrating optical coherence tomography with autofluorescence imaging for dental applications

      Non‐invasive multimodal imaging by integrating optical coherence tomography with autofluorescence imaging for dental applications
      We report the development of an integrated multi‐functional imaging system capable of providing anatomical (optical coherence tomography, OCT), functional (OCT angiography, OCTA) and molecular imaging (light‐induced autofluorescence, LIAF) for in vivo dental applications. Blue excitation light (405nm) was used for LIAF imaging, while the OCT was powered by a 1310nm swept laser source. A red‐green‐blue (RGB) digital camera, with a 450nm cut‐on broad‐band optical ...

    4. Long-term in vivo Monitoring of Gliotic Sheathing of Ultrathin Entropic Coated Brain Microprobes with Fiber-based Optical Coherence Tomography

      Long-term in vivo Monitoring of Gliotic Sheathing of Ultrathin Entropic Coated Brain Microprobes with Fiber-based Optical Coherence Tomography
      Microfabricated neuroprosthetic devices have made possible important observations on neuron activity; however, long-term high-fidelity recording performance of these devices has yet to be realized. Tissue-device interactions appear to be a primary source of lost recording performance. The current state of the art for visualizing the tissue response surrounding brain implants in animals is Immunohistochemistry + Confocal Microscopy, which is mainly performed after sacrificing the animal. Monitoring the tissue response as it ...

    7. Methodological Challenges of Deep Learning in Optical Coherence Tomography for Retinal Diseases: A Review

      Methodological Challenges of Deep Learning in Optical Coherence Tomography for Retinal Diseases: A Review
      Artificial intelligence (AI)-based automated classification and segmentation of optical coherence tomography (OCT) features have become increasingly popular. However, its 3-dimensional volumetric nature has made developing an algorithm that generalizes across all patient populations and OCT devices challenging. Several recent studies have reported high diagnostic performances of AI models; however, significant methodological challenges still exist in applying these models in real-world clinical practice. Lack of large-image datasets from multiple OCT ...

    8. Measurement and visualization of stimulus-evoked tissue dynamics in mouse barrel cortex using phase-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Measurement and visualization of stimulus-evoked tissue dynamics in mouse barrel cortex using phase-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      We describe a method to measure tissue dynamics in mouse barrel cortex during functional activation via phase-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PhS-OCT). The method measures the phase changes in OCT signals, which are induced by the tissue volume change, upon which to localize the activated tissue region. Phase unwrapping, compensation and normalization are applied to increase the dynamic range of the OCT phase detection. To guide the OCT scanning, intrinsic optical ...

      Does lining class-II cavities with flowable composite improve the interfacial adaptation?
      The objective of this study was to assess in-vitro interfacial cavity adaptation of different adhesive/composites systems in class-II restoration using SS-OCT and to confirm the findings with a confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM). Standardized rectangular-shaped class-II cavities were prepared on 24 extracted human molar teeth, bonded with adhesive and lined with flowable composite. Cavities were further restored by bulk filling using packable composite. Specimens were divided into four groups ...

    11. Application of functional optical coherence tomography angiography in neurovascular research (Thesis)

      Application of functional optical coherence tomography angiography in neurovascular research (Thesis)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a revolutionary non-invasive imaging technique that can perform high-resolution, cross-sectional tomographic imaging of the internal microstructure in biological tissues by measuring backscattered or backreflected light. Its functional extension, OCT angiography (OCTA), analyzes the intrinsic scattering property of the heterogenous tissue bed to extract dynamic blood flow signals to the capillary level without a need of contrast agents. Aside from the commonly known application of OCTA ...

    12. Electrically tunable lens integrated with optical coherence tomography angiography for cerebral blood flow imaging in deep cortical layers in mice

      Electrically tunable lens integrated with optical coherence tomography angiography for cerebral blood flow imaging in deep cortical layers in mice
      We report the use of an electrically tunable lens (ETL) in a 1.3 m spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system to overcome the depth of focus (DOF) limitation in conventional OCT systems for OCT angiography (OCTA) in a mouse cerebral cortex. The ETL provides fast and dynamic control of the axial focus of the probe beam along the entire range of the mouse cortex, upon which we performed cerebral ...

      Handheld swept-source optical coherence tomography with angiography in awake premature neonates
      Background: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) can lead to retinal detachment and severe vision loss and is a common cause of childhood blindness. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a non-invasive imaging modality that can be used to detect potential abnormalities in the microvasculature in this population. The objective of this study is to assess the feasibility of a newly developed handheld swept source OCT (SS-OCT) device to successfully acquire structural ...

    15. Spatial resolution in dynamic optical coherence elastography

      Spatial resolution in dynamic optical coherence elastography
      Dynamic optical coherence elastography (OCE) tracks elastic wave propagation speed within tissue, enabling quantitative three-dimensional imaging of the elastic modulus. We show that propagating mechanical waves are mode converted at interfaces, creating a finite region on the order of an acoustic wavelength where there is not a simple one-to-one correspondence between wave speed and elastic modulus. Depending on the details of a boundarys geometry and elasticity contrast, highly complex propagating ...
