    2. High-resolution coregistered intravascular imaging with integrated ultrasound and optical coherence tomography probe

      High-resolution coregistered intravascular imaging with integrated ultrasound and optical coherence tomography probe
      We report an integrated ultrasound (US) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) probe and system for intravascular imaging. The dual-function probe is based on a 50 MHz focused ring US transducer, with a centric hole for mounting OCT probe. The coaxial US and light beams are steered by a 45° mirror to enable coregistered US/OCT imaging simultaneously. Lateral resolution of US is improved due to focused ultrasonic beam. Mirror effects ...

    3. Preliminary investigation on use of high-resolution optical coherence tomography to monitor injury and repair in the rat sciatic nerve

      Preliminary investigation on use of high-resolution optical coherence tomography to monitor injury and repair in the rat sciatic nerve
      Background and Objective Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used in limited settings to study peripheral nerve injury. The purpose of the study is to determine whether high-resolution OCT can be used to monitor nerve injury and regeneration in the rat sciatic nerve following crush injury, ligation, and transection with microsurgical repair. Study Design/Materials and Methods Forty-five rats were segregated into three groups. The right sciatic nerve was suture ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography of the Larynx Using the Niris System

      Optical Coherence Tomography of the Larynx Using the Niris System
      OBJECTIVES:To present our experience using the first commercially available optical coherence tomography (OCT) device for use in the head, neck, and upper aerodigestive tract and to determine the feasibility and efficacy of this system in comparison with our previous experience using other research OCT systems.METHODS:Using the Niris OCT imaging system (Imalux, Cleveland, OH), we obtained OCT images of benign and premalignant laryngeal disease in 33 patients undergoing ...

    5. Three-dimensional optical coherence tomography imaging of retinal sheet implants in live rats

      Three-dimensional optical coherence tomography imaging of retinal sheet implants in live rats
      Purpose To obtain three-dimensional images from retinal transplants in live animals and evaluate the placement and structural quality of the transplants. Methods Donor retinal sheets were isolated from E19 fetuses of transgenic rats expressing human alkaline phosphatase (hPAP), and transplanted to the subretinal space of 19–56 days old S334ter-3 rat recipients with fast retinal degeneration (average age at surgery 32 days). A total of 143 rats were imaged 1 ...

    6. Integrated intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) - ultrasound (US) imaging system

      Integrated intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) - ultrasound (US) imaging system
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) are considered two complementary imaging techniques in the detection and diagnosis of atherosclerosis. OCT permits visualization of micron-scale features of atherosclerosis plaque, and IVUS offers full imaging depth of vessel wall. Under the guidance of IVUS, minimal amount of flushing agent will be needed to obtain OCT imaging of the interested area. We report on a dual-modality optical coherence tomography (OCT) - ultrasound ...

  2. About Zhongping Chen

    Zhongping Chen

    Zhongping Chen is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the F-OCT Laboratory at the University of California, Irvine. He is a Co-founder and Chairman of OCT Medical Imaging Inc. Dr. Chen received his B.S. degree in Applied Physics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1982, his M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering in 1987, and his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from Cornell University in 1993. Dr. Chen’s research interests encompass the areas of biomedical photonics, microfabrication, biomaterials and biosensors. His research group has pioneered the development of functional optical coherence tomography, which simultaneously provides high resolution 3-D images of tissue structure, blood flow, and birefringence. These functional extensions of OCT offer contrast enhancements and provide mapping of many clinically important parameters. In addition, his group has developed a number of endoscopic and intravascular rotational and linear 2-D probes for OCT and MPM imaging and translated these technologies to clinical applications through collaboration with clinicians. He has led numerous major research projects funded by NIH, NSF, DOD, and DARPA, including several interdisciplinary research projects such as the NIH Biomedical Research Partnership (BRP) grant and NSF Biophotonics Partnership Initiative grant. Dr. Chen has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers and review articles and holds a number of patents in the fields of biomaterials, biosensors, and biomedical imaging. Dr. Chen is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), a Fellow of SPIE, and a Fellow of the Optical Society of America.
