    2. Simultaneous Imaging, Monitoring, And Therapy

      Simultaneous Imaging, Monitoring, And Therapy

      Using the disclosed intravascular devices it is possible to image tissues, deliver therapy, and evaluate the tissue after the therapy is delivered. One embodiment is a catheter configured to provide ultrasound imaging, drug delivery, and Doppler flow analysis. The devices can use ultrasound imaging as well as optical coherence tomography (OCT).

    3. Artifact management in rotational imaging

      Artifact management in rotational imaging

      A method for artifact management in a rotational imaging system is presented. The method includes the steps of acquiring data employing a helical scanning pattern over N revolutions, where N is greater than 1, and detecting at least one artifact in the acquired data of each revolution. The method further includes segmenting the data acquired over N revolutions into N-1 data frames each bounded by at least one of the at least one artifacts.

    4. Medical measuring system and method

      Medical measuring system and method

      A method of performing measurements on medical images with a bedside controller includes receiving, through a touch-sensitive display on the bedside controller, a user measurement input on an image displayed on the display, the user measurement input including a start point defined by a point of initial contact with the touch-sensitive display and an end point defined by a point of last contact with the touch-sensitive display. The method also includes selecting a measurement mode based on a shape of the user measurement input and calculating a measurement value associated with the user measurement input based on the measurement mode.

    5. OCT System With Bonded Mems Tunable Mirror Vcsel Swept Source

      OCT System With Bonded Mems Tunable Mirror Vcsel Swept Source

      A microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-tunable vertical-cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) in which the MEMS mirror is a bonded to the active region. This allows for a separate electrostatic cavity, that is outside the laser's optical resonant cavity. Moreover, the use of this cavity configuration allows the MEMS mirror to be tuned by pulling the mirror away from the active region. This reduces the risk of snap down. Moreover, since the MEMS mirror is now bonded to the active region, much wider latitude is available in the technologies that are used to fabricate the MEMS mirror. This is preferably deployed ...

      Medical mounting system and method

      A bedside controller includes an integrally formed housing and self-contained mounting structure disposed on the housing. The mounting structure includes a mounting channel defined in the housing and a retaining clamp disposed above the mounting channel and configured to releasably secure a mounting platform within the mounting channel such that the bedside controller is mounted to the mounting platform. The bedside controller also includes a touch-sensitive display disposed within a surface of the housing and configured to display images and receive user input on the surface, a processor disposed within the housing, a communication module disposed within the housing, communicatively ...

      SOI lens structure for medical probe

      An optical probe for emitting and/or receiving light within a body comprises an optical fiber that transmits and/or receives an optical signal, a silicon optical bench including a fiber groove running longitudinally that holds an optical fiber termination of the optical fiber and a reflecting surface that optically couples an endface of the optical fiber termination to a lateral side of the optical bench. The fiber groove is fabricated using silicon anisotropic etching techniques. Some examples use a housing around the optical bench that is fabricated using LIGA or other electroforming technology. A method for a forming lens ...

    8. Filtered ASE swept source for OCT medical imaging

      Filtered ASE swept source for OCT medical imaging

      An integrated swept wavelength optical source uses a filtered ASE signal with an optical amplifier and tracking filter. This source comprises a micro optical bench, a source for generating broadband light, a first tunable Fabry Perot filter, installed on the bench, for spectrally filtering the broadband light from the broadband source to generate a narrowband tunable signal, an amplifier, installed on the bench, for amplifying the tunable signal, and a second tunable Fabry Perot filter, installed on the bench, for spectrally filtering the amplified tunable signal from the amplifier. A self-tracking arrangement is also possible where a single tunable filter ...

    9. Integrated dual swept source for OCT medical imaging

      Integrated dual swept source for OCT medical imaging

      An optical coherence analysis system comprising: a first swept source that generates a first optical signal that is tuned over a first spectral scan band, a second swept source that generates a second optical signal that is tuned over a second spectral scan band, a combiner for combining the first optical signal and the second optical signal to form a combined optical signal, an interferometer for dividing the combined optical signal between a reference arm leading to a reference reflector and a sample arm leading to a sample, and a detector system for detecting an interference signal generated from the ...

    10. Method and system for avoiding package induced failure in swept semiconductor source

      Method and system for avoiding package induced failure in swept semiconductor source

      Dry oxygen, dry air, or other gases such as ozone are hermetically sealed within the package of the external cavity laser or ASE swept source to avoid packaging-induced failure or PIF. PIF due to hydrocarbon breakdown at optical interfaces with high power densities is believed to occur at the SLED and/or SOA facets as well as the tunable Fabry-Perot reflector/filter elements and/or output fiber. Because the laser is an external cavity tunable laser and the configuration of the ASE swept sources, the power output can be low while the internal power at surfaces can be high leading ...
