We used Optical Coherence Microscopy (OCM) to monitor structural and functional changes due to ischemic stroke in
small animals brains in vivo. To obtain lateral resolution of 2.2 μm over the range of 600 μm we used extended focus
configuration of OCM instrument involving Bessel beam. It provided access to detailed 3D information about the
changes in brain vascular system up to the level of capillaries across I and II/III layers of neocortex. We used
photothrombotic stroke model involving photoactive application of rose bengal to assure minimal invasiveness of the
procedure and precise localization of the clot distribution center. We present the comparative analysis involving
structural and angiographic maps of the stroke-affected brain enabling in-depth insight to the process of development of

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
