    2. Comparison of Tissue Architectural Changes between Radiofrequency Ablation and Cryospray Ablation in Barrett’s Esophagus Using Endoscopic Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography

      Comparison of Tissue Architectural Changes between Radiofrequency Ablation and Cryospray Ablation in Barrett’s Esophagus Using Endoscopic Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography
      Two main nonsurgical endoscopic approaches for ablating dysplastic and early cancer lesions in the esophagus have gained popularity, namely, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryospray ablation (CSA). We report a uniquely suited endoscopic and near-microscopic imaging modality, three-dimensional (3D) optical coherence tomography (OCT), to assess and compare the esophagus immediately after RFA and CSA. The maximum depths of architectural changes were measured and compared between the two treatment groups. RFA was ...

    3. Characterization of buried glands before and after radiofrequency ablation by using 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (with videos)

      Characterization of buried glands before and after radiofrequency ablation by using 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (with videos)
      Background: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an endoscopic technique used to eradicate Barrett's esophagus (BE). However, such ablation can commonly lead to neosquamous epithelium overlying residual BE glands not visible by conventional endoscopy and may evade detection on random biopsy samples.Objective: To demonstrate the capability of endoscopic 3-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) for the identification and characterization of buried glands before and after RFA therapy.Design: Cross-sectional study.Setting ...

  2. About Yuankai K. Tao

    Yuankai K. Tao

    Yuankai Kenny Tao is a postdoc in the Laser Medicine and Medical Imaging Group at MIT and was foremerly a graduate student working with Professor Izatt in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University.  Kenny's thesis work investigated the development of coherence-gated and resolution-multiplexed optical imaging systems with applications in ophthalmic imaging.

  3. Quotes

    1. “Our group has spent quite a few years working on developing the underlying imaging technology...This grant will support our translational efforts and allow us to identify ophthalmic surgeries that will directly benefit from real-time guidance and to better understand how surgical maneuvers impact postoperative visual function.
