Paper Abstract

In this paper we summarize the experience gained at the Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IAP RAS), Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy and associated companies Imalux Corporation (USA) and BioMedTech (Russia) in the development and clinical adoption of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging modality. The Nizhny Novgorod team holds priority in developing and creating a portable fiber optic OCT device with removable miniprobes compatible with standard endoscopes. As a result, an endoscopic variant of the OCT technology was used for the first time and multidisciplinary clinical trials were started. The endoscopic OCT was tested on over 4000 patients in Russian and foreign clinics. Indications for clinical use, limitations and ways for improvement of the OCT technology are discussed.
