Summary of "Optical coherence tomographic (OCT) evaluation of intraoral non-ablative erbium: YAG laser (SMOOTH mode) in rejuvenation of nasolabial folds; A prospective randomized split face comparative pilot study."

There are both few non-comparative studies investigating the efficacy of intraoral Er: YAG laser (SMOOTH mode) in rejuvenating nasolabial folds (NLFs) and lack of valid and objective wrinkles scales. In this prospective randomized split face comparative pilot study, we investigated the safety and efficacy of intraoral Er: YAG laser (SMOOTH MODE) compared with extraoral approach in rejuvenating NLFs using OCT as an objective evaluating tool.

Prevalence and Severity of Artifacts in Optical Coherence Tomographic Angiograms.

Artifacts can affect optical coherence tomographic angiography (OCTA) images and may be associated with misinterpretation of OCT scans in both clinical trials and clinical settings.

Basal cell carcinoma treated with combined ablative fractional laser and ingenol mebutate - An exploratory study monitored by optical coherence tomography and reflectance confocal microscopy.

Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) have previously been treated off-label with ingenol mebutate (IM). Ablative fractional laser (AFL) may improve efficacy of IM by increasing drug uptake in the tumor. Optic...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Erbium. An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Er, atomic number 68, and atomic weight 167.26.

A non-invasive imaging method that uses computed tomographic data combined with specialized imaging software to examine the colon.

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.
