    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. Upper airway reconstruction using long‐range optical coherence tomography: Effects of airway curvature on airflow resistance

      Upper airway reconstruction using long‐range optical coherence tomography: Effects of airway curvature on airflow resistance
      Objectives Adenotonsillectomy (AT) is commonly used to treat upper airway obstruction in children, but selection of patients who will benefit most from AT is challenging. The need for diagnostic evaluation tools without sedation, radiation, or high costs has motivated the development of long‐range optical coherence tomography (LR‐OCT), providing real‐time cross‐sectional airway imaging during endoscopy. Since the endoscope channel location is not tracked in conventional LR‐OCT ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. Multimodality endoscopic optical coherence tomography and fluorescence imaging technology for visualization of layered architecture and subsurface microvasculature

      Multimodality endoscopic optical coherence tomography and fluorescence imaging technology for visualization of layered architecture and subsurface microvasculature
      Endoscopic imaging technologies, such as endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) and near-infrared fluorescence, have been used to investigate vascular and morphological changes as hallmarks of early cancer in the gastrointestinal tract. Here we developed a high-speed multimodality endoscopic OCT and fluorescence imaging system. Using this system, the architectural morphology and vasculature of the rectum wall were obtained simultaneously from a Sprague Dawley rat in vivo . This multimodality imaging strategy in ...

    6. Stimuli-disassembling gold nanoclusters for diagnosis of early stage oral cancer by optical coherence tomography

      Stimuli-disassembling gold nanoclusters for diagnosis of early stage oral cancer by optical coherence tomography
      A key design consideration in developing contrast agents is obtaining distinct, multiple signal changes in diseased tissue. Plasmonic gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) have been developed as contrast agents due to their strong surface plasmon resonance (SPR). This study aims to demonstrate that stimuli-responsive plasmonic Au nanoclusters (Au NCs) can be used as a contrast agent for optical coherence tomography (OCT) in detecting early-stage cancer. Au NPs were clustered via acid-cleavable ...

    7. Quantitative angle-insensitive flow measurement using relative standard deviation OCT

      Quantitative angle-insensitive flow measurement using relative standard deviation OCT
      Incorporating different data processing methods, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has the ability for high-resolution angiography and quantitative flow velocity measurements. However, OCT angiography cannot provide quantitative information of flow velocities, and the velocity measurement based on Doppler OCT requires the determination of Doppler angles, which is a challenge in a complex vascular network. In this study, we report on a relative standard deviation OCT (RSD-OCT) method which provides both vascular ...

    8. 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 ...

    9. In vivo imaging of the internal nasal valve during different conditions using optical coherence tomography

      In vivo imaging of the internal nasal valve during different conditions using optical coherence tomography
      Objective Previously, we proposed long-range optical coherence tomography (LR-OCT) to be an effective method for the quantitative evaluation of the nasal valve geometry. Here, the objective was to quantify the reduction in the internal nasal valve angle and cross-sectional area that results in subjective nasal airway obstruction and to evaluate the dynamic behavior of the valve during respiration using LR-OCT. Methods For 16 healthy individuals, LR-OCT was performed in each ...

      Visualization and Detection of Ciliary Beating Pattern and Frequency in the Upper Airway using Phase Resolved Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography
      Ciliary motion plays a critical role in the overall respiratory health of the upper airway. These cilia beat at a native frequency and in a synchronized pattern to continuously transport foreign particulate trapped in a layer of mucous out of the upper airway. Disruption of ciliary motion can lead to severe respiratory diseases and compromised respiratory function. Currently, the study of cilia requires expensive high speed cameras and high powered ...

      Miniature probe for mapping mechanical properties of vascular lesions using acoustic radiation force optical coherence elastography
      Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of fatalities in the United States. Atherosclerotic plaques are one of the primary complications that can lead to strokes and heart attacks if left untreated. It is essential to diagnose the disease early and distinguish vulnerable plaques from harmless ones. Many methods focus on the structural or molecular properties of plaques. Mechanical properties have been shown to change drastically when abnormalities develop in arterial ...

    13. Association of Electrochemical Therapy With Optical, Mechanical, and Acoustic Impedance Properties of Porcine Skin

      Association of Electrochemical Therapy With Optical, Mechanical, and Acoustic Impedance Properties of Porcine Skin
      Importance The classic management of burn scars and other injuries to the skin has largely relied on soft-tissue transfer to resurface damaged tissue with local tissue transfer or skin graft placement. In situ generation of electrochemical reactions using needle electrodes and an application of current may be a new approach to treat scars and skin. Objective To examine the changes in optical, mechanical, and acoustic impedance properties in porcine skin ...

    14. Longitudinal shear wave imaging for elasticity mapping using optical coherence elastography

      Longitudinal shear wave imaging for elasticity mapping using optical coherence elastography
      Shear wave measurements for the determination of tissue elastic properties have been used in clinical diagnosis and soft tissue assessment. A shear wave propagates as a transverse wave where vibration is perpendicular to the wave propagation direction. Previous transverse shear wave measurements could detect the shear modulus in the lateral region of the force; however, they could not provide the elastic information in the axial region of the force. In ...
