    2. Emerging applications for OCT in the head and neck

      Emerging applications for OCT in the head and neck
      Objectives To describe the current and promising new applications of the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a helpful tool when imaging the different sites in the head and neck. Using the OCT Niris system, which is the first commercially available OCT device for applications outside the field of ophthalmology. Methods We obtained OCT images of normal, benign, premalignant and malignant lesions in different areas of the head and neck. The ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography of the Larynx Using the Niris System

      Optical Coherence Tomography of the Larynx Using the Niris System
      OBJECTIVES:To present our experience using the first commercially available optical coherence tomography (OCT) device for use in the head, neck, and upper aerodigestive tract and to determine the feasibility and efficacy of this system in comparison with our previous experience using other research OCT systems.METHODS:Using the Niris OCT imaging system (Imalux, Cleveland, OH), we obtained OCT images of benign and premalignant laryngeal disease in 33 patients undergoing ...

    4. Feature Of The Week 11/15/09: A Comparison between Optical Coherence Tomography and Histology of Laryngeal Epithelial Thickness

      Feature Of The Week 11/15/09: A Comparison between Optical Coherence Tomography and Histology of Laryngeal Epithelial Thickness
      Feature Of The Week 11/15/09: While applications of optical coherence tomography in ophthalmology and cardiology have very successfully transitioned from the research world to the commercial world many other fields have lagged behind. One such area is the field of Otolaryngology. While much of the technology developed in both the academic and commercial worlds is directly applicable to applications in otolaryngology there remain some unique features such as ...

    5. Laryngeal epithelial thickness: a comparison between optical coherence tomography and histology

      Objectives: Optical coherence tomography, an imaging modality using near-infrared light, produces cross-sectional tissue images with a lateral pixel resolution of 10 μm. However, normative data is first needed on epithelial thickness for lesion characterisation, and, to date, little exists. The purpose of our study is to measure normal laryngeal epithelial thickness by in vivo optical coherence tomography, and compare these values to those obtained from fixed ex-vivo laryngectomy specimens. Design ...
