    3. Fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography of a minimalistic system configuration

      Fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography of a minimalistic system configuration
      We present a very simple method of constructing a polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) system. An ordinary fiber-based swept-source OCT system was reconfigured for PS-OCT by adding a long section of polarization-maintaining fiber in the sample arm. Two polarization modes of a large group-delay difference formed spatially distinguished polarization channels. The depth-encoded information on the polarization states was retrieved by an amplitude-based analysis. We found that our method provides an ...

    4. Multimodal endoscopy for colorectal cancer detection by optical coherence tomography and near-infrared fluorescence imaging

      Multimodal endoscopy for colorectal cancer detection by optical coherence tomography and near-infrared fluorescence imaging
      While colonoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosis and classification of colorectal cancer (CRC), its sensitivity and specificity are operator-dependent and are especially poor for small and flat lesions. Contemporary imaging modalities, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence, have been investigated to visualize microvasculature and morphological changes for detecting early stage CRC in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In our study, we developed a multimodal endoscopic system ...

    5. Automatic Proximal Airway Volume Segmentation Using Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Inhalation Injury

      Automatic Proximal Airway Volume Segmentation Using Optical Coherence Tomography for Assessment of Inhalation Injury
      Background Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a severe form of acute lung injury with a mortality rate of up to 40%. Early management of ARDS has been difficult due to the lack of sensitive imaging tools and robust analysis software. We previously designed an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system to evaluate mucosa thickness (MT) post smoke inhalation, but the analysis relied on manual segmentation. The aim of this study ...

    6. The effect of melanin on in vivo optical coherence tomography of the skin in a multiethnic cohort

      The effect of melanin on in vivo optical coherence tomography of the skin in a multiethnic cohort
      Background Noninvasive real‐time assessment of living tissue is quickly becoming invaluable for bolstering histologic and dermatoscopic measures of cutaneous conditions. While many skin researchers have explored the utility of noninvasive imaging in inflammatory and malignant skin conditions, there is yet to be a definitive and direct assessment of the effects of melanin on the quality of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and its accuracy in multiethnic patient populations. We ...

    7. Intra-operative point-of-procedure delineation of oral cancer margins using optical coherence tomography

      Intra-operative point-of-procedure delineation of oral cancer margins using optical coherence tomography
      Objectives Surgical margin status is a significant determinant of treatment outcome in oral cancer. Negative surgical margins can decrease the loco-regional recurrence by five-fold. The current standard of care of intraoperative clinical examination supplemented by histological frozen section, can result in a risk of positive margins from 5 to 17 percent. In this study, we attempted to assess the utility of intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging with automated diagnostic ...

      Perspective: Current challenges and solutions of Doppler optical coherence tomography and angiography for neuroimaging
      The nervous system, based on a complex network of nerves and cells, carries messages by transmitting signals to and from different parts of the body. The supply of blood flow in the nervous system is critical to maintain physiological functions. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has the ability to noninvasively image the microvascular networks and accurately quantify the blood flow in vivo with high spatial and temporal resolutions in three dimensions ...

    11. Point-of-care endoscopic optical coherence tomography detects changes in mucosal thickness in ARDS due to smoke inhalation and burns

      Point-of-care endoscopic optical coherence tomography detects changes in mucosal thickness in ARDS due to smoke inhalation and burns
      Background The prevalence of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in mechanically ventilated burn patients is 33%, with mortality varying from 1146% depending on ARDS severity. Despite the new Berlin definition for ARDS, prompt bedside diagnosis is lacking. We developed and tested a bedside technique of fiberoptic-bronchoscopy-based optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurement of airway mucosal thickness (MT) for diagnosis of ARDS following smoke inhalation injury (SII) and burns. Methods 16 female ...

      Phase-stability optimization of swept-source optical coherence tomography
      Phase-resolved imaging of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) is subject to phase measurement instabilities involved with the sweep variation of a frequency-swept source. In general, optically generated timing references are utilized to track the variations imposed on OCT signals. But they might not be accurately synchronized due to relative time delays. In this research, we investigated the impact of the signal delays on the timing instabilities and the consequent deviations ...

    13. Optical Coherence Tomography as an Oral Cancer Screening Adjunct in a Low Resource Settings

      Optical Coherence Tomography as an Oral Cancer Screening Adjunct in a Low Resource Settings
      Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer worldwide, predominantly seen in low and middle-income countries (LMIC). Two thirds of all cases are detected at a late stage when prognosis and treatment outcomes are poor. Oral lesions are commonly detected by visual inspection, followed by invasive surgical biopsy and time consuming histopathological analysis. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), a minimally invasive tomographic imaging technology, can be used to non-invasively identify premalignant ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

    16. 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 ...
