Abstract
The goal of bronchial thermoplasty (BT) is to reduce the symptoms associated with asthma by ablating the hyper-responsive airway smooth (ASM), but results have been mixed. In this work we present the results of a study in which we imaged canines before and after BT using polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) in order to assess the potential of PS-OCT for use in conjunction with the BT procedure. By employing a novel processing technique we demonstrate PS-OCT results obtained at full system resolution, allowing us to accurately measure even vanishingly thin ASM distributions following the BT procedure.
