    2. In vivo intracardiac OCT imaging through percutaneous access: Towards image guided radio-frequency ablation

      In vivo intracardiac OCT imaging through percutaneous access: Towards image guided radio-frequency ablation
      BACKGROUND Complete catheter-tissue contact and permanent tissue destruction are essential for efficient radio-frequency ablation (RFA) during cardiac arrhythmia treatment. Current methods of monitoring lesion formation are indirect and unreliable. We aim to develop optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an imaging guidance for RFA. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of using OCT catheter to image endocardia wall in active beating hearts through percutaneous access. This ...

    4. 3-D Volumetric Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging and Image Analysis of Barrett's Esophagus (Thesis)

      3-D Volumetric Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging and Image Analysis of Barrett's Esophagus (Thesis)
      Barrett's esophagus (BE) surveillance remains challenging, because even histopathology, the gold standard, is subject to sampling error. The esophageal mucosal area involved in BE can be 20 square centimeters or more. 3-D volumetric Imaging technology with high diagnostic accuracy may potentially guide and assist the standard histopathology, eliminate the sampling error and improve surveillance efficiency. It has been shown that endoscopic optical coherence tomography (EOCT) of a small mucosal ...

    6. Three-Dimensional Imaging of Ureter With Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography

      Three-Dimensional Imaging of Ureter With Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography
      Objectives To verify the ability to identify the layered structures of the ureteral wall and to image a segment of the ureter in 3 dimensions with high-speed, endoscopic optical coherence tomography (EOCT). Methods We imaged a porcine ureter ex vivo using a spectral-domain EOCT with a specially designed circumferential scanning fiber catheter. The images were correlated with the histologic findings to identify the corresponding structures. Three-dimensional images and en face ...

    7. Diagnostic efficacy of computer extracted image features in optical coherence tomography of the precancerous cervix

      Diagnostic efficacy of computer extracted image features in optical coherence tomography of the precancerous cervix
      Purpose: To determine the diagnostic efficacy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to identify cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or higher by computer-aided diagnosis (CADx). Methods: OCT has been investigated as a screening/diagnostic tool in the management of preinvasive and early invasive cancers of the uterine cervix. In this study, an automated algorithm was developed to extract OCT image features and identify CIN 2 or higher. First, the cervical ...
