The authors describe the development of an ultrafast three-dimensional (3D) optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging system that provides real-time intraoperative video images of the surgical site to assist surgeons during microsurgical procedures. This system is based on a full-range complex conjugate free Fourier-domain OCT (FD-OCT). The system was built in a CPU-GPU heterogeneous computing architecture capable of video OCT image processing. The system displays at a maximum speed of 10…

Endoscopic Functional Fourier Domain Common-Path Optical Coherence Tomography for Microsurgery

Progress towards practical application of FD-CP-OCT in the setting of delicate microsurgical procedures such as intraocular retinal surgery is reported and a technique to quantitatively evaluate the spatial distribution of oxygen saturation levels in tissue is proposed.

Optical coherence tomography for neurosurgical imaging of human intracortical melanoma.

OCT can effectively differentiate normal cortex from intracortical melanoma based on variations in optical backscatter, and may permit the intraoperative identification of tumor and the more precise localization of tumor margins.

Extensions of OCT are under development that should provide enhanced contrast or non-invasive depth resolved functional imaging of the investigated tissue, including extraction of birefringent, spectroscopic, blood flow or physiologic tissue information, which should improve image contrast and enable the differentiation and early detection of pathologies via localized functional state.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an emerging biomedical imaging modality which can generate high resolution, cross-sectional images of microstructure in biological systems. OCT is analogous to

Noninvasive volumetric imaging and morphometry of the rodent retina with high-speed, ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography.

High-speed, ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence tomography enables imaging of retinal architectural morphology in small animal models and promises to allow repeated, noninvasive measurements to track disease progression, thereby reducing the need for killing the animal for histology.

Optical coherence tomography for ultrahigh resolution in vivo imaging

Optical coherence tomography functions as a type of 'optical biopsy' to provide cross-sectional images of tissue structure on the micron scale and is a promising imaging technology because it can provide images of tissues in situ and in real time, without the need for excision and processing of specimens.
