Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) is a powerful imaging tool with specialized applications limited to research and ophthalmology clinics due in part to instrument size, cost, and complexity. Conversely, low-cost retinal imaging devices have limited capabilities in screening, detection, and diagnosis of diseases. To fill the niche between these two, a(More)
PURPOSE To describe the fine structure of the fovea in subjects with a history of mild retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) using adaptive optics-Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (AO-FDOCT). METHODS High-speed, high-resolution AO-FDOCT videos were recorded in subjects with a history of ROP (n = 5; age range, 14-26 years) and in control subjects (n(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to utilize optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of coronary atherosclerotic plaque macrophages to investigate the relationship between macrophage distributions and clinical syndrome. BACKGROUND The relative significance of focal macrophage infiltration and generalized coronary inflammation for predicting acute(More)
WWe present what is believed to be the first absorption and scattering images of in vitro and in vivo bones and joints from continuous-wave tomographic measurements. Human finger and chicken bones embedded in cylindrical scattering media were imaged at multiple transverse planes with Clemson multi-channel diffuse optical imager. Both absorption and(More)
We have developed a compact, multimodal instrument for simultaneous acquisition of en face quasi-confocal fundus images and adaptive-optics (AO) spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) cross-sectional images. The optical system including all AO and SDOCT components occupies a 60x60 cm breadboard that can be readily transported for clinical(More)
Minimally invasive imaging of upper airway obstructions in children and adults is needed to improve clinical decision-making. Toward this goal, we demonstrate an anatomical optical coherence tomography (aOCT) system delivered via a small-bore, flexible endoscope to quantify the upper airway lumen geometry. Helical scans were obtained from a(More)
We present for the first time a full three-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of absorption images of breast from continuous-wave (cw) measurements performed on a premenopausal woman. Our 3-D optical images clearly reveal a large primary tumor as well as a small secondary tumor in a separate location of the breast. The multiple tumors identified by our 3-D(More)
We demonstrate in vivo measurements in human retinal vessels of an experimental parameter, the slope of the low coherence interferometry (LCI) depth reflectivity profile, which strongly correlates with the real value of blood hematocrit. A novel instrument that combines two technologies, spectral domain low coherence interferometry (SDLCI) and retinal(More)
This paper demonstrates experimental three-dimensional (3D) image reconstruction of optically heterogeneous turbid media from near-infrared continuous-wave measurements. Successful reconstruction is achieved through a full 3D finite-element based, Newton-type reconstruction algorithm. Our experimental evidence shows that both absorption and scattering(More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (SLO) are complementary imaging modalities, the combination of which can provide clinicians with a wealth of information to detect retinal diseases, monitor disease progression, or assess new therapies. Adaptive optics (AO) is a tool that enables correction of wavefront distortions from(More)
