Paper Abstract

We present an initial study to describe the potential of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for characterizing endomyocardial tissue. We obtained ventricular OCT images from 15 fresh human hearts. Layer thickness measurements and texture features were extracted from volumetric datasets with endocardial thickening, normal myocardium, myocardium with interstitial fibrosis, normal endocardium, and adipose tissue. Within our datasets, we observed that the thickness of endocardium was not different within samples with normal or myocardium with interstitial fibrosis, however samples with endocardial thickening showed statistically increased endocardial thickness.
