    2. Method and system for characterising biological tissue

      Method and system for characterising biological tissue
      The present disclosure provides a method for characterizing a region of interest within or between biological tissue. The method comprises inserting at least a portion of a probe into the region of interest and directing electromagnetic radiation to the region of interest and receiving electromagnetic radiation from the region of interest using the probe in a direction that is transversal to a length of the probe. Further, the method comprises ...

    3. Finger-mounted quantitative micro-elastography

      Finger-mounted quantitative micro-elastography
      We present a finger-mounted quantitative micro-elastography (QME) probe, capable of measuring the elasticity of biological tissue in a format that avails of the dexterity of the human finger. Finger-mounted QME represents the first demonstration of a wearable elastography probe. The approach realizes optical coherence tomography-based elastography by focusing the optical beam into the sample via a single-mode fiber that is fused to a length of graded-index fiber. The fiber is ...

    4. Analysis of spatial resolution in phase-sensitive compression optical coherence elastography

      Analysis of spatial resolution in phase-sensitive compression optical coherence elastography
      Optical coherence elastography (OCE) is emerging as a method to image the mechanical properties of tissue on the microscale. However, the spatial resolution, a main advantage of OCE, has not been investigated and is not trivial to evaluate. To address this, we present a framework to analyze resolution in phase-sensitive compression OCE that incorporates the three main determinants of resolution: mechanical deformation of the sample, detection of this deformation using ...

    5. Handheld optical palpation of turbid tissue with motion-artifact correction

      Handheld optical palpation of turbid tissue with motion-artifact correction
      Handheld imaging probes are needed to extend the clinical translation of optical elastography to in vivo applications, yet such probes have received little attention. In this paper, we present the first demonstration of optical palpation using a handheld probe. Optical palpation is a variant of optical elastography that uses three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) to provide maps of stress at the tissue surface under static compression. Using this technique, stiff ...

      Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion Secondary To A Retinal Arteriolar Macroaneurysm: A Novel Mechanism Supported By Multimodal Imaging
      Background/Purpose: To report a case of a branch retinal vein occlusion secondary to a retinal arteriolar macroaneurysm (RAM). Methods: Retrospective case report describing examination findings, treatment outcome and unique multimodal imaging features demonstrated on fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography, optical coherence tomography angiography and adaptive optics photography of the retinal vessels and RAM. Results: A 61-year-old man presented with 20/200 vision in the right eye because of a ...

    7. Short-time series optical coherence tomography angiography and its application to cutaneous microvasculature

      Short-time series optical coherence tomography angiography and its application to cutaneous microvasculature
      We present a new optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography method for imaging tissue microvasculature in vivo based on the characteristic frequency-domain flow signature in a short time series of a single voxel. The angiography signal is generated by Fourier transforming the OCT signal time series from a given voxel in multiple acquisitions and computing the average magnitude of non-zero (high-pass) frequency components. Larger temporal variations of the OCT signal caused ...

    8. Robust reconstruction of local optic axis orientation with fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Robust reconstruction of local optic axis orientation with fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography
      It is challenging to recover local optic axis orientation from samples probed with fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT). In addition to the effect of preceding tissue layers, the transmission through fiber and system elements, and imperfect system alignment, need to be compensated. Here, we present a method to retrieve the required correction factors from measurements with depth-multiplexed PS-OCT, which accurately measures the full Jones matrix. The correction considers both ...

    9. Retinal imaging with optical coherence tomography and low‐loss adaptive optics using a 2.8‐mm beam size

      Retinal imaging with optical coherence tomography and low‐loss adaptive optics using a 2.8‐mm beam size
      As data acquisition for retinal imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) becomes faster, efficient collection of photons becomes more important to maintain image quality. One approach is to use a larger aperture at the eyes pupil to collect more photons that have been reflected from the retina. A 2.8‐mm beam diameter system with only 7 reflecting surfaces was developed for low‐loss retinal imaging. The larger beam size ...

    10. Two-photon polymerisation 3D printed freeform micro-optics for optical coherence tomography fibre probes

      Two-photon polymerisation 3D printed freeform micro-optics for optical coherence tomography fibre probes
      Miniaturised optical coherence tomography (OCT) fibre-optic probes have enabled high-resolution cross-sectional imaging deep within the body. However, existing OCT fibre-optic probe fabrication methods cannot generate miniaturised freeform optics, which limits our ability to fabricate probes with both complex optical function and dimensions comparable to the optical fibre diameter. Recently, major advances in two-photon direct laser writing have enabled 3D printing of arbitrary three-dimensional micro/nanostructures with a surface roughness acceptable ...

    11. Posterior Choroidal Stroma Reduces Accuracy of Automated Segmentation of Outer Choroidal Boundary in Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography

      Posterior Choroidal Stroma Reduces Accuracy of Automated Segmentation of Outer Choroidal Boundary in Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose : To determine the influence of choroidal boundary morphology on the accuracy of automated measurements of subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) in swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT). Methods : A retrospective image analysis of foveal-centered horizontal line scans from normal and diseased eyes using the Topcon DRI OCT-1 Atlantis SSOCT was conducted. Subfoveal choroid-scleral junction (CSJ) and retina-choroidal junction (RCJ) morphologies were graded by two observers. Automated SFCT (A-SFCT) was compared ...

    12. Imaging Of Pigment Epithelial Detachments With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Imaging Of Pigment Epithelial Detachments With Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose: To investigate the utility of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for detecting pathologic vascularization within pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs). Methods: This was a retrospective, cross-sectional, consecutive case series. Multimodal imaging (structural OCT, fluorescein, and indocyanine green angiography) was used as the gold standard to classify PEDs as nonvascularized or vascularized. Optical coherence tomography angiography imaging of the PED was subsequently and independently evaluated to classify PEDs as vascularized or ...
