    • Comprehensive Microscopy of the Esophagus in Human Patients with Optical Frequency Domain Imaging 

      Suter, Melissa; Vakoc, Benjamin; Yachimski, Patrick S.; Shishkov, Milen Stefanov; Lauwers, Gregory Y.; Mino-Kenudson, Mari; Bouma, Brett; Nishioka, Norman Shizuaki; Tearney, Guillermo James (Elsevier BV, 2008)
      Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a cross-sectional, high-resolution imaging modality that has been shown to accurately differentiate esophageal specialized intestinal metaplasia (SIM) from gastric cardia ...
    • Image-Guided Biopsy in the Esophagus through Comprehensive Optical Frequency Domain Imaging and Laser Marking: A Study in Living Swine 

      Suter, Melissa; Jillella, Priyanka A.; Vakoc, Benjamin; Halpern, Elkan F.; Mino-Kenudson, Mari; Lauwers, Gregory Y.; Bouma, Brett; Nishioka, Norman Shizuaki; Tearney, Guillermo James (Elsevier BV, 2010)
      Background: Random biopsy esophageal surveillance can be subject to sampling errors, resulting in diagnostic uncertainty. Optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) is a high-speed, 3-dimensional endoscopic microscopy technique. ...
    • In vivo label-free measurement of lymph flow velocity and volumetric flow rates using Doppler optical coherence tomography 

      Blatter, Cedric; Meijer, Eelco F. J.; Nam, Ahhyun S.; Jones, Dennis; Bouma, Brett E.; Padera, Timothy P.; Vakoc, Benjamin J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Direct in vivo imaging of lymph flow is key to understanding lymphatic system function in normal and disease states. Optical microscopy techniques provide the resolution required for these measurements, but existing optical ...
    • Photometric stereo endoscopy 

      Parot, Vicente; Lim, Daryl; González, Germán; Traverso, Giovanni; Nishioka, Norman S.; Vakoc, Benjamin J.; Durr, Nicholas J. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2013)
      Abstract. While color video endoscopy has enabled wide-field examination of the gastrointestinal tract, it often misses or incorrectly classifies lesions. Many of these missed lesions exhibit characteristic three-dimensional ...
    • Polarimetry noise in fiber-based optical coherence tomography instrumentation 

      Zhang, Ellen Ziyi; Vakoc, Benjamin (Optical Society of America, 2011)
      High noise levels in fiber-based polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) have broadly limited its clinical utility. In this study we investigate contribution of polarization mode dispersion (PMD) to ...
