An OCT-guided watchful-waiting strategy is used to avoid the invasive treatment of the LMCA in a very young patient with massive coronary thrombosis.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Journal of invasive cardiology
The purpose of this paper was to evaluate whether optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) can be used to quantify the vascular changes in radiation maculopathy, and changes in the tumor vascu...
Accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) can be measured non-invasively by skin autofluorescence (SAF) whose values are elevated in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Optical co...
Waardenburg syndrome (WS) is a rare condition characterized by six main features. It has been previously observed that WS is also associated with hypopigmentation of the choroid through multimodal ima...
Whether optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) outperforms OCT to detect glaucoma remains inconclusive.
To report spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings of a patient who experienced bilateral visual loss after a motorcycle accident.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new imaging technique in ophthalmology. This clear and documented imaging identified new diseases/ observations that were not previously ...
Objectives: 1. To assess the tolerability of performing optical coherence tomography and/or optical spectroscopy in patients with acute oral mucositis. 2. To determine the...
The overall objective of this research proposal is to use OCT to investigate those morphological culprit plaque characteristics associated with the risk of developing MVO in reperfused STE...
Information will be collected prospectively in about 3,000 patients having Optical Coherence Tomography during cardiac catheterization. Subjects will be initially enrolled at sites outsid...
To examine effects of intensive lipid lowering therapy with atorvastatin on stabilization of coronary plaque by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with acute coronary syn...
An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.
Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.
Modality of computed tomography in which the patient is irradiated in a spiral path around the body with a cone or pyramid-shaped beam.
The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
