Current medical imaging technologies allow visualization of tissue anatomy in the human body at resolutions ranging from 100 micrometers to 1 millimeter. These technologies are generally not sensitive enough to detect early-stage tissue abnormalities associated with diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis, which require micrometer-scale resolution. Here, optical coherence tomography was adapted to allow high-speed visualization of tissue in a living animal with a catheter-endoscope 1… Expand

Ultrahigh resolution optical biopsy with endoscopic optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
The ability of ultrahigh resolution endoscopic OCT to image tissue morphology at an unprecedented resolution in vivo advances the development of OCT as a potential imaging tool for the early detection of neoplastic changes in biological tissue. Expand
Diagnosis of Biological Tissue Morphology and Function with Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
To test the endoscopic OCT system for imaging diagnosis of early epithelial cancers, rat bladder cancer models were used and the results show over 90% sensitivity and specificity. Expand
Optical coherence tomography
TLDR
Optical Coherence Tomography functions as a type of optical biopsy and is a powerful imaging technology for medical diagnostics because unlike conventional histopathology which requires removal of a tissue specimen and processing for microscopic examination, OCT can provide images of tissue in situ and in real time.

Imaging needle for optical coherence tomography.
We describe a miniature optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging needle that can be inserted into solid tissues and organs to permit interstitial imaging of their internal microstructures withExpand
Optical coherence tomography: an emerging technology for biomedical imaging and optical biopsy.
TLDR
OCT can be used where standard excisional biopsy is hazardous or impossible, to reduce sampling errors associated with excisionality, and to guide interventional procedures, and its potential biomedical and clinical applications are described. Expand
Endoscopic optical coherence tomography imaging for surgical diagnostics and guidance in the gastrointestinal tract
TLDR
This in vivo demonstration suggests that resolutions and acquisition rates are sufficient for imaging the human gastrointestinal tract and OCT shows promise for high-resolution image-guidance during diagnostic and surgical procedures. Expand
Optical coherence tomography
Optical coherence tomography is a noninvasive optical imaging modality that is rapidly gaining adoption in many clinical applications. OCT is capable of providing high-speed three-dimensionalExpand
Clinical imaging with optical coherence tomography.
