Injection-depth-locking axial motion guided handheld micro-injector using CP-SSOCT

This paper presents a handheld micro-injector system using common-path swept source optical coherence tomography (CP-SSOCT) as a distal sensor with highly accurate injection-depth-locking. To achieve real-time, highly precise, and intuitive freehand control, the system used graphics processing unit (GPU) to …

Does smooth muscle in an intact airway undergo length adaptation during a sustained change in transmural pressure?

In isolated airway smooth muscle (ASM) strips, an increase or decrease in ASM length away from its current optimum length causes an immediate reduction in force production followed by a gradual time-dependent recovery in force, a phenomenon termed length adaptation.

Two dimensional vibrations of the guinea pig apex organ of Corti measured in vivo using phase sensitive Fourier domain optical coherence tomography

In this study, we measure the in vivo apical-turn vibrations of the guinea pig organ of Corti in both axial and radial directions using phase-sensitive Fourier domain optical coherence tomography. The apical turn in guinea pig cochlea has best frequencies …

Optical Coherence Tomography versus Visual Evoked Potentials in detecting subclinical visual impairment in multiple sclerosis

Rationale . Visual impairment is one of the most common clinical manifestations of multiple sclerosis (MS). Some multiple sclerosis patients complain of poor vision although the Snellen visual acuity is 20/20. This study reveals that sensitive measurements like visual evoked …

In Vivo High-Definition Optical Coherence Tomography: A Bedside Diagnostic Aid for Morphea

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technique that allows real-time high-definition cross-sectional visualization of tissues. Conventional OCT was introduced in dermatology in 1997 and has shown benefit in evaluating malignant neoplasms and inflammatory skin disorders. 1 , 2 …
