    2. Quantitative evaluation of degenerated tendon model using combined optical coherence elastography and acoustic radiation force method

      Quantitative evaluation of degenerated tendon model using combined optical coherence elastography and acoustic radiation force method
      Damage of collagen fibers in tendons is often directly related to changes in a tendons mechanical properties. Direct quantitative elasticity measurement of tendons will provide important information in tendon dysfunction diagnosis and treatment assessment. A feasibility study of quantifying the mechanical properties of a degenerated tendon model by a nondestructive imaging modality, which combines optical coherence elastography and acoustic radiation force (ARF) method, is presented. The degenerated tendon model was ...

    3. Study of optical properties and proteoglycan content of tendons by polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Study of optical properties and proteoglycan content of tendons by polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography
      The highly orientated collagen fibers in tendons play a critical role for transferring tensile stress, and they demonstrate birefringent optical properties. However, the influence that proteoglycans (PGs) have on the optical properties of tendons is yet to be fully elucidated. PGs are the essential components of the tendon extracellular matrix; the changes in their quantities and compositions have been associated with tendinopathies. In this study, polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography ...

    4. Investigation of a tissue engineered tendon model by PS-OCT

      Investigation of a tissue engineered tendon model by PS-OCT
      A few native tissues, such as tendon, skin and eye, possess highly organized collagenous matrices. In particular, the collagen fibers in tendon are organized into a hierarchical and unidirectional format, which gives rise to the high tissuespecific mechanical properties. This organization has been clearly revealed by a conventional polarized light microscope. The newly developed polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) technique allows non-invasive visualization of birefringence images arising from orientated structures ...

    5. Online monitoring of collagen fibre alignment in tissue-engineered tendon by PSOCT

      One of the major challenges in engineering a functional tendon is to be able to monitor the evolving arrangement of collagen fibres, which leads to the formation of a complex extracellular matrix. Polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PSOCT) is a non-destructive imaging technique capable of examining the organization of tissues online. In this study, PSOCT was used for the first time to visualize the evolution of the collagen fibre alignment in ...

    6. Characterisation of scaffold architecture and tendons using optical coherence tomography and polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Scaffolds play an important role in the generation of functional tissues using tissue-engineering techniques. To generate highly organised tissue, scaffolds must have specific internal and external architectures. Here, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is exploited to characterise the architectures of various scaffolds, in particular scaffolds which have been fabricated to support the formation of uniaxially orientated collagen bundle for use in tendon tissue engineering. In parallel, a polarisation-sensitive OCT (PSOCT) has ...

    7. Optical properties of human tendons characterized by Psoct and their relation to tendinopathy: a clinical study

      Polarisation-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PSOCT) is a non destructive technique with great potential for tendinopathy diagnosis. Functional optical assessment can be used in operating theatres to delineate in depth the margin of the non-healthy area, and limit the amount of tissue to be r ... [Proc. SPIE Int. Soc. Opt. Eng. 6854, 68541C (2008)] published Tue Feb 12, 2008.

    8. Application of polarization OCT in tissue engineering

      For tissue engineering of load-bearing tissues, such as bone, tendon, cartilage, and cornea, it is critical to generate a highly organized extracellular matrix. The major component of the matrix in these tissues is collagen, which usually forms a highly hierarchical structure with increasing scale from fibril to fiber bundles. These bundles are ordered into a 3D network to withstand forces such as tensile, compressive or shear. To induce the formation ...
