    3. Optical coherence tomography angiography and photoacoustic imaging in dermatology

      Optical coherence tomography angiography and photoacoustic imaging in dermatology
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a relatively novel functional extension of the widely accepted ophthalmic imaging tool named optical coherence tomography (OCT). Since OCTAs debut in ophthalmology, researchers have also been trying to expand its translational application into dermatology. The ability of OCTA in resolving microvasculature has shown promising results in imaging skin diseases. Meanwhile, photoacoustic imaging (PAI), which uses laser pulse induced ultrasound waves as the signal, has ...

      Purpose : To prospectively monitor microaneurysms (MAs) in three dimensions using adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (AOOCT). Methods : Patients with diabetes mellitus and parafoveal MAs were included in this longitudinal study. At baseline, MAs were identified in standard fluorescein angiography (FA) and subsequently imaged with an AOOCT prototype, incorporated into an AO fundus camera (RTX1, Imagine Eyes) device.

    5. Combination of High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography and Raman Spectroscopy for Improved Staging and Grading in Bladder Cancer

      Combination of High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography and Raman Spectroscopy for Improved Staging and Grading in Bladder Cancer
      We present a combination of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Raman spectroscopy (RS) for improved diagnosis and discrimination of different stages and grades of bladder cancer ex vivo by linking the complementary information provided by these two techniques. Bladder samples were obtained from biopsies dissected via transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURBT). As OCT provides structural information rapidly, it was used as a red-flag technology to scan the bladder ...

    6. Handheld multi‐modal imaging for point‐of‐care skin diagnosis based on akinetic integrated optics optical coherence tomography

      Handheld multi‐modal imaging for point‐of‐care skin diagnosis based on akinetic integrated optics optical coherence tomography
      A handheld skin imaging system with joint optical coherence tomography (OCT) at 1300 nm and digital epiluminescence microscopy (EM) is presented. The two modalities are physically co‐registered in a common‐path configuration. The instrument is enabled by a dedicated planar lightwave circuit with a footprint of only 1.1 x 19.5 mm 2 that provides akinetic axial OCT scanning at speeds up to 24 kHz. Lateral scanning is ...

    7. Compact akinetic swept source optical coherence tomography angiography at 1060 nm supporting a wide field of view and adaptive optics imaging modes of the posterior eye

      Compact akinetic swept source optical coherence tomography angiography at 1060 nm supporting a wide field of view and adaptive optics imaging modes of the posterior eye
      Imaging of the human retina with high resolution is an essential step towards improved diagnosis and treatment control. In this paper, we introduce a compact, clinically user-friendly instrument based on swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). A key feature of the system is the realization of two different operation modes. The first operation mode is similar to conventional OCT imaging and provides large field of view (FoV) images (up to ...

    10. Optophysiological Characterisation of Inner Retina Responses with High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optophysiological Characterisation of Inner Retina Responses with High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography
      Low coherence laser interferometry has revolutionised quantitative biomedical imaging of optically transparent structures at cellular resolutions. We report the first optical recording of neuronal excitation at cellular resolution in the inner retina by quantifying optically recorded stimulus-evoked responses from the retinal ganglion cell layer and comparing them with an electrophysiological standard. We imaged anaesthetised paralysed tree shrews, gated image acquisition, and used numerical filters to eliminate noise arising from retinal ...

      Purpose: To characterize retinal microaneurysms (MAs) in patients with diabetes using adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (AOOCT) and compare details found in AOOCT with those found in commercially available retinal imaging techniques. Methods: Patients with diabetes and MA in the macular area were included in this pilot study. The area of interest, identified in standard fluorescein angiography, was imaged using an AO fundus camera and AOOCT. Microaneurysms were characterized in ...

      Non-invasive multimodal optical coherence and photoacoustic tomography for human skin imaging
      The cutaneous vasculature is involved in many diseases. Current clinical examination techniques, however, cannot resolve the human vasculature with all plexus in a non-invasive manner. By combining an optical coherence tomography system with angiography extension and an all optical photoacoustic tomography system, we can resolve in 3D the blood vessels in human skin for all plexus non-invasively. With a customized imaging unit that permits access to various parts of patients ...

    1. State-of-the-art OCT technology has its limitations: it is bulky, the size of a desk top and quite expensive, costing anything in the region of €100, 000 per unit. It can detect abnormalities but at the present moment, compact, cost effective versions that can be used outside of hospitals and in private practice in a hand held mode do not exist...The core component of our OCTChip project targets the size of a 1 cent coin. It will reduce costs and is maintenance free. Hence retinal diseases like Diabetic Retinopathy and Glaucoma as well as other retina diseases that are worldwide leading causes for blindness might be diagnosed via screening with this cost-effective compact point-of-care version of OCT...OCTChip fosters wide spread use to visualise and quantify the retina in more definition, so we can diagnose diseases better, quicker, and cheaper.

    4. Lasers and light-­‐based methods have long promised to deliver benefits to clinicians through faster, more accurate, more sensitive, and more cost-­‐effective diagnosis of cancer and other important diseases, but so far most optical diagnostic instruments are expensive, complex and have limited performance. A key reason for this is that the lasers and light sources they use, are adapted from other industrial and scientific applications, and have not been optimized for these new clinical uses. Now in FAMOS, we will develop and demonstrate the next generation of light sources to produce step changes in cost/performance that will trigger development of a whole new world of non-­‐invasive clinical diagnostic tools.

We've passed acceptance and we're between elation and state of the art...I personally think that OCT will never replace any gold standard like histology or established imaging modalities, but it will be very important at generating information in the future...It provides you with more information for earlier diagnosis.
