X-ray Imaging of tumor microvasculature

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a 3D structural imaging technique using light interference (2). Since OCT detects a coherent component of light, it is highly sensitive to light scattering. Thus, OCT could be used to detect neural activity patterns in 3D by extracting neural- activity-induced modulation of OCT signals. We proposed this idea in 2007 and named it functional OCT (3).

Zu-Yi Wang Accurate positioning and realtime monitoring of blood coagulation by functional optical coherence tomography-guided laser therapy system

We proposed a method to develop an integrated system that combines optical coherence tomography (OCT) and laser microsurgery for blood coagulation. Instead of high-cost pulsed lasers, continuous-wave laser diodes (CW-LDs) with the central wavelengths of 450 nm and 532 nm are used for blood coagulation. Experimental results showed

Yong Da Sie Section ability improvement of temporal focusing microscopy via binary DMD holography

A temporal focusing multiphoton excitation microscope integrated with computer generated binary Fourier hologram and pulse width modulation of a digital micro-mirror device to improve the excitation axial resolution intrinsically via filling a back-focal apertures The intrinsic excitation axial resolution is improved about 18% due to the optimized back-focal aperture intrinsically.

Chen-yu Lin Noninvasive optical measurement of chronic pain intensity in patients with fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is complex syndrome characterized by chronic widespread pain and a heightened and painful response to pressure. This study used near-infrared diffuse optical spectroscopies to measure prefrontal cortex blood oxygen during breathe-holding in normal controls and patients with fibromyalgia
