    2. Adaptive classifier allows enhanced flow contrast in OCT angiography using a histogram-based motion threshold and 3D Hessian analysis-based shape filtering

      Adaptive classifier allows enhanced flow contrast in OCT angiography using a histogram-based motion threshold and 3D Hessian analysis-based shape filtering
      In this Letter, we propose an adaptive digital classifier for flow contrast enhancement in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). To solve the depth dependence in the initial motion-based classification, a depth-adaptive motion threshold was determined by performing a histogram analysis of an en-face image at each depth and identifying the static and dynamic voxel populations through fitting. In the follow-up shape-based classification, to adapt to the deformed vessel shapes in ...

      Noninvasive structural and microvascular anatomy of oral mucosae using handheld optical coherence tomography
      In this study, we demonstrated the feasibility of using a handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT) for in vivo visualizations of the microstructural and microvascular features of various oral mucosal types. To scan arbitrary locations of the oral mucosa, a scanning probe was developed, composed of a probe body fabricated by a 3D printer, miniaturized two-axis galvanometer, relay lenses, and reflective prism. With a 3D printing technique, the probe weight and ...

    4. Phase and amplitude correction in polygon tunable laser-based optical coherence tomography

      Phase and amplitude correction in polygon tunable laser-based optical coherence tomography
      Phase instability is a serious problem in swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) with polygon tunable lasers; however, these devices have additional issues. We found that polygon tunable lasers also have fluctuations in output power and sweep range: the former creates artifacts that may impair the recognition of sample information, and the latter reduces the interference signal utilization during phase correction. We demonstrate a method that uses the calibration signal to ...

    5. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography dynamic changes and steroid response in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome

      Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography dynamic changes and steroid response in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome
      Dear Editor, Multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) was first described in 1984 as a rare, acute, unilateral, multifocal retinochoroidal disorder, typically affecting young myopic women[1]. Previous studies with fluorescein angiography (FA) and electrophysiology suggested that MEWDS to be a disease in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) or outer retina[2], while recent studies with spectraldomain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) suggested it may be an outer retinal disease due ...

    7. Using Optical Coherence Tomography to Identify of Oral Mucosae with 3D-Printing Probe

      Using Optical Coherence Tomography to Identify of Oral Mucosae with 3D-Printing Probe
      Biomedical materials have different optical properties (e.g. absorption) for different wavelengths. Therefore, probing biomedical materials with multiple wavelengths not only can get in-depth understanding of the detected biomedical materials but also can differentiate the detected biomedical materials. To achieve this purpose, in this conference paper, we present our initial results of building up a portable multiple-wavelength biomedical sensing system. At this initial phase, we assembled this kind of system ...

      Lens-free all-fiber probe with an optimized output beam for optical coherence tomography
      A high-efficiency lensless all-fiber probe for optical coherence tomography (OCT) is presented. The probe is composed of a segment of large-core multimode fiber (MMF), a segment of tapered MMF, and a length of single-mode fiber (SMF). A controllable output beam can be designed by a simple adjustment of its probe structure parameters (PSPs), instead of the selection of fibers with different optical parameters.

    9. Quasi-needle-like focus synthesized by optical coherence tomography

      Quasi-needle-like focus synthesized by optical coherence tomography
      It is known that lateral resolution and depth of focus (DOF) in an optical imaging system are coupled, and a compromise between them has to be made. In this Letter, we propose to resolve the trade-off between lateral resolution and the DOF by a synthetic effective point spread function in optical path length (OPL) domain. A quasi-needle-like focus is synthesized by optical coherence tomography. We demonstrate that the synthesized quasi-needle-like ...

    10. Motion correction using overlapped data correlation based on a spatial-spectral encoded parallel optical coherence tomography

      Motion correction using overlapped data correlation based on a spatial-spectral encoded parallel optical coherence tomography
      This paper presents an approach to remove motion artifacts based on a spatial-spectral encoded parallel OCT (SSE-POCT) system, where encoded rectangular illumination is employed. Motion artifacts within a B-scan are avoided due to parallel detection intrinsic to parallel OCT, while those between successive B-scans are estimated and corrected by a proposed overlapped data correlation (ODC) algorithm. To preserve axial resolution, decoded B-scan corresponding to complete spectrum is stitched from successive ...

    11. Coagulation monitoring based on blood elastic measurement using optical coherence tomography

      Coagulation monitoring based on blood elastic measurement using optical coherence tomography
      Blood coagulation monitoring is important to diagnose hematological diseases and cardiovascular diseases and to predict the risk of bleeding and excessive clotting. In this study, we developed a system to dynamically monitor blood coagulation and quantitatively determine the coagulation function by blood elastic measurement. When blood forms a clot from a liquid, ultrasonic force induces a shear wave, which is detected by optical coherence tomography (OCT). The coagulation of porcine ...

    12. A useful way to develop effective in vivo skin optical clearing agents

      A useful way to develop effective in vivo skin optical clearing agents
      Skin optical clearing has shown tremendous potential in improving various optical imaging performances, but there is some certain blindness in screening out high-efficiency in vivo optical clearing methods. In this work, three optical clearing agents: sucrose (Suc), fructose (Fruc) and PEG-400 (PEG), and two chemical penetration enhancers: propylene glycol (PG) and thiazone (Thiaz) were used. PEG was firstly mixed with the two penetration enhancers, respectively, and then mixed with Fruc ...

    13. Angular compounding by full-channel B-scan modulation encoding for optical coherence tomography speckle reduction

      Angular compounding by full-channel B-scan modulation encoding for optical coherence tomography speckle reduction
      We describe an angular compounding method by full-channel B-scan modulation encoding for speckle reduction in optical coherence tomography. The complex-valued spectral interferogram (SI) is reconstructed by removing one of the conjugate terms in the depth space. Fourier transform of the complex SI along the lateral direction enables a full-channel (with both negative and positive Fourier space) for B-scan modulation in the spatial frequency ( ) domain. A full-size probe beam, determined by ...

    14. Hybrid averaging offers high-flow contrast by cost apportionment among imaging time, axial, and lateral resolution in optical coherence tomography angiography

      Hybrid averaging offers high-flow contrast by cost apportionment among imaging time, axial, and lateral resolution in optical coherence tomography angiography
      The current temporal, wavelength, angular, and spatial averaging approaches trade imaging time and resolution for multiple independent measurements that improve the flow contrast in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). We find that these averaging approaches are equivalent in principle, offering almost the same flow contrast enhancement as the number of averages increases. Based on this finding, we propose a hybrid averaging strategy for contrast enhancement by cost apportionment. We demonstrate ...

      Optical coherence tomography angiography offers comprehensive evaluation of skin optical clearing in vivo by quantifying optical properties and blood flow imaging simultaneously
      Tissue optical clearing (TOC) is helpful for reducing scattering and enhancing the penetration depth of light, and shows promising potential in optimizing optical imaging performances. A mixture of fructose with PEG-400 and thiazone (FPT) is used as an optical clearing agent in mouse dorsal skin and evaluated with OCT angiography (Angio-OCT) by quantifying optical properties and blood flow imaging simultaneously. It is observed that FPT leads to an improved imaging ...

    16. Single-shot angular compounded optical coherence tomography angiography by splitting full-space B-scan modulation spectrum for flow contrast enhancement

      Single-shot angular compounded optical coherence tomography angiography by splitting full-space B-scan modulation spectrum for flow contrast enhancement
      We proposed a single-shot spatial angular compounded optical coherence tomography angiography (AC-Angio-OCT) for blood flow contrast enhancement. By encoding incident angles in B-scan modulation frequencies and splitting the modulation spectrum in the spatial frequency domain, angle-resolved independent subangiograms were obtained and compounded to improve the flow contrast. A full space of the spatial frequency domain allows a wide modulation spectrum. To get access to the full space of the spatial ...
