INTRODUCTION In vitro studies on the structure of human fetal membranes have involved light or electron microscopy with fixation, dehydration, and staining. Recently, optical coherence tomography (OCT), an imaging technology, has provided high-resolution cross-sectional images of living biological tissues, with a penetration of 2-3 mm. We evaluated the use of this technology to examine the histologic features of human fetal membranes immediately after delivery. METHODS Samples of fetal… CONTINUE READING
