    • Co-Registered Spectrally Encoded Confocal Microscopy and Optical Frequency Domain Imaging System 

      Kang, D.K.; Suter, Melissa; Boudoux, Caroline; Yachimski, P.S.; Puricelli, W.P.; Nishioka, Norman Shizuaki; Mino-Kenudson, Mari; Lauwers, Gregory Y.; Bouma, Brett; Tearney, Guillermo James (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010)
      Spectrally encoded confocal microscopy and optical frequency domain imaging are two non-contact optical imaging technologies that provide images of tissue cellular and architectural morphology, which are both used for ...
    • Comprehensive Imaging of Gastroesophageal Biopsy Samples by Spectrally Encoded Confocal Microscopy 

      Kang, DongKyun; Suter, Melissa; Boudoux, Caroline; Yoo, Hongki; Yachimski, Patrick S.; Puricelli, William P.; Nishioka, Norman Shizuaki; Mino-Kenudson, Mari; Lauwers, Gregory Y.; Bouma, Brett; Tearney, Guillermo James (Elsevier BV, 2010)
      Background: Spectrally encoded confocal microscopy (SECM) is a high-speed reflectance confocal microscopy technique that has the potential to be used for acquiring comprehensive images of the entire distal esophagus ...
    • 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 ...
    • Flexible transbronchial optical frequency domain imaging smart needle for biopsy guidance 

      Tan, K.M.; Shishkov, Milen Stefanov; Chee, A.; Applegate, M. B.; Bouma, Brett; Suter, Melissa (Optical Society of America, 2012)
      Transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is a procedure routinely performed to diagnose peripheral pulmonary lesions. However, TBNA is associated with a low diagnostic yield due to inappropriate needle placement. We have ...
    • 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. ...
    • Tethered capsule endomicroscopy enables less-invasive imaging of gastrointestinal tract microstructure 

      Gora, Michalina J.; Sauk, Jenny S.; Carruth, Robert W.; Gallagher, Kevin A.; Suter, Melissa J.; Nishioka, Norman S.; Kava, Lauren E.; Rosenberg, Mireille; Bouma, Brett E.; Tearney, Guillermo J. (2012)
      Here, we introduce “tethered capsule endomicroscopy,” that involves swallowing an optomechanically-engineered pill that captures cross-sectional, 30 μm (lateral) × 7 μm (axial) resolution, microscopic images of the gut ...
