    2. 1.7 micron optical coherence tomography for vaginal tissue characterization in vivo

      1.7 micron optical coherence tomography for vaginal tissue characterization in vivo
      Objectives Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can noninvasively visualize in vivo tissue microstructure with high spatial resolution that approaches the histologic level. Currently, OCT studies in gynecology are few and limited to a conventional 1.3m center wavelength swept light source which provides high spatial resolution but limited penetration depth. Here, we present a novel endoscopic OCT system with improved penetration depth and high resolution. Methods A novel endoscopic OCT system ...

    3. Deep imaging in highly scattering media by combining reflection matrix measurement with Bessel-like beam based optical coherence tomography

      Deep imaging in highly scattering media by combining reflection matrix measurement with Bessel-like beam based optical coherence tomography
      Multiple scattering in biomedical tissue limits the imaging depth within a range of 12mm for conventional optical imaging techniques. To extend the imaging depth into the scattering medium, a computational method based on the reflection matrix measurement has been developed to retrieve the singly back-scattered signal light from the dominant detrimental multiple-scattered background. After applying singular value decomposition on the measured matrix in the post-process, the target image underneath the ...

    7. Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography for Characterization of Atherosclerosis with a 1.7 Micron Swept-Source Laser

      Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography for Characterization of Atherosclerosis with a 1.7 Micron Swept-Source Laser
      The main cause of acute coronary events, such as thrombosis, is the rupture of atherosclerotic plaques. Typical intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) imaging systems that utilize a 1.3m swept source laser are often used for identifying fibrous cap thickness of plaques, yet cannot provide adequate depth penetration to resolve the size of the lipid pool. Here, we present a novel IVOCT system with a 1.7m center wavelength swept ...

      Extended axial imaging range, widefield swept source optical coherence tomography angiography
      We developed a high-speed, swept source OCT system for widefield OCT angiography (OCTA) imaging. The system has an extended axial imaging range of 6.6 mm. An electrical lens is used for fast, automatic focusing. The recently developed split-spectrum amplitude and phase-gradient angiography allow high-resolution OCTA imaging with only two B-scan repetitions. An improved post-processing algorithm effectively removed trigger jitter artifacts and reduced noise in the flow signal. We demonstrated ...
