Paper Abstract

To aid in diagnosis and treatment of upper airway obstructive disorders (UAOD), we propose anatomic Optical Coherence Tomography (aOCT) for endoscopic imaging of the upper airway lumen with high speed and resolution. aOCT and CT scans are performed sequentially on in vivo swine to compare dynamic airway imaging data. The aOCT system is capable of capturing the dynamic deformation of the airway during respiration. This may lead to methods for airway elastography and aid in our understanding of dynamic collapse in UAOD.
