Measuring the Spectrum of Tissues During Endoscopy

2014-08-27 03:18:35 | BioPortfolio


Lesions, polyps and other abnormalities in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract have a different composition compared to the normal mucose. The investigators plan to gather spectroscopic information from these features. Characterizing their unique spectrums, may help to enhance the detection and identification of these objects during endoscopy.

Feasibility of Translumenal Endoscopic Omental Patch Closure of Perforated Viscus

This study is being done to see if a new approach to repair perforated ulcers in the stomach (holes in the stomach) or the first part of the intestine will work as well or better than the ...

Endoscopic Myotomy for the Treatment of Achalasia (Motility Disorder) of the Esophagus - POEM Procedure

Endoscopic Esophageal Myotomy (POEM), the research procedure, splits the lower esophageal sphincter muscle fibers from the inside of the esophagus, avoiding several abdominal incisions (be...

Identification of In-vivo Probe Based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy Cellular Characteristics in Obese Women

Previous studies have shown that histological changes in the gastric mucosa between obese and non-obese individuals do exist. Understanding these histological differences (between obese an...

Study of QRH-882260 Heptapeptide Application in the Colon

A Phase 1B study of the efficacy of a topically-administered 7-amino acid peptide labeled with a near-infrared fluorophore Cy5 for detecting neoplastic areas of the colon is proposed. The ...

Surveillance of Bleeding Peptic Ulcer Using Wireless Capsule Endoscopy

To investigate the adjunctive role of “Capsule Endoscope” in continuous endoscopic monitoring and early detection of recurrent ulcer bleeding after endoscopic therapy in patients prese...

Dual-channel operation in a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator for the generation of broadband mid-infrared coherent light sources.

We report, to the best of our knowledge, a novel approach for generating broadband mid-infrared (mid-IR) light by implementing a dual-channel scheme in a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscill...

Comparison of automated and manual drying in the eliminating residual endoscope working channel fluid after reprocessing (with video).

Residual fluid within endoscope working channels after reprocessing may promote growth of pathogens. Current reprocessing guidelines therefore recommend endoscope drying with administration of forced ...

Oil-in-water emulsion impregnated electrospun poly(ethylene terephthalate) fiber mat as a novel tool for optical fiber cleaning.

The complete removal of remaining polymer debris after stripping of optical fiber cables is essential for high precision connection between two fibers. It can be anticipated that electrospun porous me...

Less than 1% quantum defect fiber lasers via ytterbium-doped multicomponent fluorosilicate optical fiber.

Two ytterbium-doped fiber lasers exhibiting quantum defects of less than 1% are demonstrated, in which pumping at wavelengths of 976.6 and 981.0 nm yielded lasing at wavelengths of 985.7 and 989.8 nm,...

Scintillation index reducing based on wide-spectral mode-locking fiber laser carriers in a simulated atmospheric turbulent channel.

We report on a communication link demonstration in a 1 km simulated atmospheric turbulent channel with a wide-spectral mode-locking fiber laser. Wide-spectral beams are part of the supercontinuum, wh...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Control of bleeding performed through the channel of the endoscope. Techniques include use of lasers, heater probes, bipolar electrocoagulation, and local injection. Endoscopic hemostasis is commonly used to treat bleeding esophageal and gastrointestinal varices and ulcers.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the female pelvic viscera by means of an endoscope introduced into the pelvic cavity through the posterior vaginal fornix.

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.

A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.
