    2. Equidistant Recording of the Spectral Components in Ultra-Wideband Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Equidistant Recording of the Spectral Components in Ultra-Wideband Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      We develop an effective method for reducing nonequidistance when recording the spectral components of an interference signal in ultra-wideband spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. For this purpose, a corrector consisting of two identical prisms is used in a diffraction-grating spectrometer. The corrector rotation with respect to the diffraction-grating plane and a variation in the angle between the corrector elements allow one to adjust the equidistant spatial distribution of the spectral components ...

    4. Medium chromatic dispersion calculation and correction in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

      Medium chromatic dispersion calculation and correction in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography
      A method for determining and correcting distortions in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography images caused by medium dispersion was developed. The method is based on analysis of the phase distribution of the interference signal recorded by an optical coherence tomography device using an iterative approach to find and compensate for the effect of a mediums chromatic dispersion on point-spread function broadening in optical coherence tomography. This enables compensation of the impact ...

    5. Pixel classification method in optical coherence tomography for tumor segmentation and its complementary usage with OCT microangiography

      Pixel classification method in optical coherence tomography for tumor segmentation and its complementary usage with OCT microangiography
      A novel machine-learning method to distinguish between tumor and normal tissue in optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been developed. Pre-clinical murine ear model implanted with mouse colon carcinoma CT-26 was used. Structural-image-based feature sets were defined for each pixel and machine learning classifiers were trained using ground truth OCT images manually segmented by comparison with histology. The accuracy of the OCT tumour segmentation method was then quantified by comparing with ...

    6. Vessel-contrast enhancement in label-free optical coherence angiography based on phase and amplitude speckle variability

      Vessel-contrast enhancement in label-free optical coherence angiography based on phase and amplitude speckle variability
      Recently proposed in vivo label-free optical coherence angiography techniques based on phase and amplitude speckle variability often require additional signal pre- and post processing operations to enhance vessel-contrast. We observe here 1) contrast enhancement by optimizing the signal normalization/weighing before processing; 2) algorithm based on Kasai estimator for phase compensation between processed A-scans to reduce masking role of motion artifacts; and 3) image projection through the imaging depth for ...

    7. Correction of aberrations in digital holography using the phase gradient autofocus technique

      Correction of aberrations in digital holography using the phase gradient autofocus technique
      We propose a method for correcting aberrations in digital holography based on the principles of computational adaptive optics using the phase gradient autofocus technique that demands no reference measurements. The method requires a priori information on the relative positions of the elements of the optical setup. It is applicable for sufficiently smooth optical aberrations. This technique does not impose any restrictions on the magnitude of the scattered optical field phase ...

    8. Multi-modal optical imaging characterization of atherosclerotic plaques

      Multi-modal optical imaging characterization of atherosclerotic plaques
      We combined cross-polarization optical coherence tomography (CP OCT) and non-linear microscopy based on second harmonic generation (SHG) and two-photon-excited fluorescence (2PEF) to assess collagen and elastin fibers and other vascular structures in the development of atherosclerosis, including identification of vulnerable plaques, which remains an important clinical problem and imaging application. CP OCT's ability to visualize tissue birefringence and cross-scattering adds new information about the microstructure and composition of the ...

    9. Deformation-induced speckle-pattern evolution and feasibility of correlational speckle tracking in optical coherence elastography

      Deformation-induced speckle-pattern evolution and feasibility of correlational speckle tracking in optical coherence elastography
      Feasibility of speckle tracking in optical coherence tomography (OCT) based on digital image correlation (DIC) is discussed in the context of elastography problems. Specifics of applying DIC methods to OCT, compared to processing of photographic images in mechanical engineering applications, are emphasized and main complications are pointed out. Analytical arguments are augmented by accurate numerical simulations of OCT speckle patterns. In contrast to DIC processing for displacement and strain estimation ...

    11. Hybrid M-mode-like OCT imaging of 3D microvasculature in vivo using reference-free processing of complex-valued B-scans

      Hybrid M-mode-like OCT imaging of 3D  microvasculature in vivo using reference-free  processing of complex-valued B-scans
      We propose a novel OCT-based method for visualizing microvasculature in 3D using reference-free processing of individual complex-valued B-scans with highly overlapped A-scans. In the lateral direction of such a B-scan, the amplitude and phase of speckles corresponding to vessel regions exhibit faster variability, and thus can be detected without comparison with other B-scans recorded in the same plane. This method combines elements of several existing OCT angiographic approaches, and exhibits ...

    13. Improvement of lateral resolution of spectral domain optical coherence tomography images inout-of-focus regions with holographic data processing techniques

      Improvement of lateral resolution of spectral domain optical coherence tomography images inout-of-focus regions with holographic data processing techniques
      An analogy between spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) data and broadband digital holography data is considered. Based on this analogy, a method for processing SD OCT data, which makes it possible to construct images with a lateral resolution in the whole investigated volume equal to the resolution in the in-focus region, is developed. Several issues concerning practical application of the proposed method are discussed.

      A model for simulating speckle-pattern evolution based on close to reality procedures used inspectral-domain OCT
      A robust model for simulating speckle-pattern evolution in optical coherence tomography (OCT) depending on the OCT system parameters and tissue deformation is reported. The model is based on the application of close to reality procedures used in spectral-domain OCT scanners. It naturally generates images reproducing properties of real images in spectral-domain OCT, including the pixelized structure and finite depth of unambiguous imaging, influence of the optical spectrum shape, dependence on ...

      Achromatic registration of quadrature components of the optical spectrum in spectral domain opticalcoherence tomography
      We have thoroughly investigated the method of simultaneous reception of spectral components with the achromatised quadrature phase shift between two portions of a reference wave, designed for the effective suppression of the 'mirror' artefact in the resulting image obtained by means of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT). We have developed and experimentally tested a phase-shifting element consisting of a beam divider, which splits the reference optical beam into ...

    16. Combining the correlation-stability approach to OCT elastography with the speckle-variance evaluation for quantifying the stiffness differences

      Combining the correlation-stability approach to OCT elastography with the speckle-variance evaluation for quantifying the stiffness differences
      We discuss an advanced variant of the correlation-stability (CS) approach to OCT elastography that is capable of quantifying the stiffness differences. The modified variant is based on natural combination of CS approach with the speckle-variance (SV) approach. It allows one to determine the strain dependence of the normalized speckle intensity variance function for two compared subsets taken from the OCT images corresponding to the initial and deformed states of the ...
