In vivo assessment of wall strain in embryonic chick heart by spectral domain optical coherence tomography.

Abstract

The ability to measure in vivo wall strain in embryonic hearts is important for fully understanding the mechanisms of cardiac development. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a powerful tool for the three-dimensional imaging of complex myocardial activities in early-stage embryonic hearts with high spatial and temporal resolutions. We describe a method to… (More)
