EU Funded Careioca Projet Lead to New High-Speed Ex-Vivo and Endoscopic Optical Imaging Systems for Real-Time Cancer Diagnosis Showing High Potential

Cancer diagnosis relies on the long and complex histology process. During surgery, there is currently no real- time guidance at the histology level, leading to up to 40% of reoperations . Along the cancer care workflow , in particular for …

Attenuation Coefficients, Pixel Intensity, and Texture Analysis as Quantitative Parameters for Analyzing Optical Coherence Tomography Images of Vocal Fold Tissue (Thesis)

Optical coherence tomography is a promising technology to noninvasively assess vocal fold microanatomy. However, many studies using optical coherence tomography to evaluate vocal fold tissue are largely qualitative in nature and lack quantitative measures that might be useful in clinical …

Automated anterior segment OCT image analysis for Angle Closure Glaucoma mechanisms classification

Background and objectives Angle closure glaucoma (ACG) is an eye disease prevalent throughout the world. ACG is caused by four major mechanisms: exaggerated lens vault, pupil block, thick peripheral iris roll, and plateau iris. Identifying the specific mechanism in a …

An implant to catch metastatic cancer cells before they grow into tumors

There could be a way around this, though: a special imaging method under development at Northwestern University called Inverse Spectroscopic Optical Coherence Tomography (ISOCT). ISOCT detects molecular-level differences in the way cells in the body scatter light. And when we …

Detection of retinal blood vessel changes in multiple sclerosis with optical coherence tomography

Although retinal vasculitis is common in multiple sclerosis (MS), it is not known if MS is associated with quantitative abnormalities in retinal blood vessels (BVs). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is suitable for examining the integrity of the anterior visual pathways …

Bimodal endoscopic probe combining white-light microscopy and optical coherence tomography

We present a novel bimodal endoscopic imaging probe that can simultaneously provide full-field white-light video microscopy and confocal optical coherence tomography (OCT) depth scans. The two modalities rely on spectrally separated optical paths that run partially in parallel through a …

Optimal Imaging Matches Intravascular Ultrasound for Guiding PCI

Using optimal frequency domain imaging (OFDI) to guide percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with second-generation drug eluting stents (DES) achieves equivalent clinical and angiographic outcomes to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided PCI at 12 months. This conclusion was part of results of the …
