    2. Quantifying the vascular response to ischemia with speckle variance optical coherence tomography

      Quantifying the vascular response to ischemia with speckle variance optical coherence tomography
      Longitudinal monitoring techniques for preclinical models of vascular remodeling are critical to the development of new therapies for pathological conditions such as ischemia and cancer. In models of skeletal muscle ischemia in particular, there is a lack of quantitative, non-invasive and long term assessment of vessel morphology. Here, we have applied speckle variance optical coherence tomography (OCT) methods to quantitatively assess vascular remodeling and growth in a mouse model of ...

    4. Longitudinal study of arteriogenesis with swept source optical coherence tomography and hyperspectral imaging

      Longitudinal study of arteriogenesis with swept source optical coherence tomography and hyperspectral imaging
      Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an atherosclerotic disease of the extremities that leads to high rates of myocardial infarction and stroke, increased mortality, and reduced quality of life. PAD is especially prevalent in diabetic patients, and is commonly modeled by hind limb ischemia in mice to study collateral vessel development and test novel therapies. Current techniques used to assess recovery cannot obtain quantitative, physiological data non-invasively. Here, we have applied ...

    9. Miniature real-time intraoperative forward-imaging optical coherence tomography probe

      Miniature real-time intraoperative forward-imaging optical coherence tomography probe
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has a tremendous global impact upon the ability to diagnose, treat, and monitor eye diseases. A miniature 25-gauge forward-imaging OCT probe with a disposable tip was developed for real-time intraoperative ocular imaging of posterior pole and peripheral structures to improve vitreoretinal surgery. The scanning range was 2 mm when the probe tip was held 3-4 mm from the tissue surface. The axial resolution was 4-6 m ...

    10. Dual-imaging system for burn depth diagnosis

      Dual-imaging system for burn depth diagnosis
      Currently, determination of burn depth and healing outcomes has been limited to subjective assessment or a single modality, e.g., laser Doppler imaging. Such measures have proven less than ideal. Recent developments in other non-contact technologies such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and pulse speckle imaging (PSI) offer the promise that an intelligent fusion of information across these modalities can improve visualization of burn regions thereby increasing the sensitivity of ...

      2. About Vanderbilt University

        Vanderbilt University

        Vanderbilt University is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational research university in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Founded in 1873, the university is named for shipping and rail magnate "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt, who provided Vanderbilt its initial $1 million endowment despite having never been to the South. The Commodore hoped that his gift and the greater work of the university would help to heal the sectional wounds inflicted by the Civil War.
