    2. Techniques for extraction of depth-resolved in vivo human retinal intrinsic optical signals with optical coherence tomography

      Purpose To demonstrate acquisition and analysis methods for depth-resolved observation of slow retinal physiology induced changes in infrared backscatter in vivo. Methods A dark-adapted human was briefly subjected to a localized photobleach. For 20 min before and 30 min after the stimulus, volumetric optical coherence tomograms were collected partially overlapping the bleached region. Tomograms were segmented into retinal layers by a newly described algorithm exploiting information in adjacent B-scans. En ...

      Watching Cells Migrate
      Cell motility and chemotaxis play an important role for tissue engineering, repair and replacement of damaged organs. Conventional studies of cell migration have largely relied on the use of 2D monolayer cultures on transparent surfaces; however it is questionable how well these relate to in-vivo processes. Recent developments in the field of tissue engineering have enabled cells to be grown in 3D organotypic cultures, which more closely resemble the complex ...

    4. Three- and four-dimensional visualization of cell migration using optical coherence tomography

      Conventionally, cell chemotaxis is studied on two-dimensional (2D) transparent surfaces, due to limitations in optical and image data-collection techniques. However, surfaces that more closely mimic the natural environment of cells are often opaque. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive label-free imaging technique, which offers the potential to visualize moving cells on opaque surfaces and in three dimensions (3D). Here, we demonstrate that OCT is an effective means of time-lapse ...

    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.
