1 July 2004 Optical coherence tomography in pulmonary imaging: feasibility study
Author Affiliations +
We suggest that Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a potential imaging modality capable of assisting diagnosis in pulmonary medicines. OCT can provide extremely high resolution imaging and be performed with flexible fiber-optic bronchoscopy with small diameter endoscopic probes. In this study, animal models of trachea, and lung surface were to investigate utility of OCT in pulmonary. Normal, malignant, and infectious disease animal model samples measured by OCT were compared to standard histologic H&E light microscopic imaging of the same sites.
