Paper Abstract

It is important to provide timely information to surgeons on diagnosis of a suspicious ovarian tissue before excision to avoid unnecessary surgery, especially for young women. In this report, we introduce a new 3-D surface mapping technique to map ovarian tissue scattering properties by fitting the swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) signals to a scattering model. We observed that lower scattering coefficients and heterogeneous spatial distribution were associated with malignant ovarian tissues, and higher scattering coefficients and homogeneous spatial distribution indicated benign ovarian tissues. The initial results suggest that the 3-D scattering map has potential to be an effective tool to characterize normal and malignant ovarian tissues.
