Paper Abstract

Optical coherence tomography is a novel imaging technique providing potentially high resolution tri-dimensional images of tissue microstructure up to 2-3mm deep. We present pre-clinical data from a novel miniaturised OCT probe utilised for endoscopic imaging of laryngeal mucosa. A 1300nm SS-OCT probe was passed in tandem with a flexible fibreoptic nasoendoscope into the larynx of a manikin. Ex vivo OCT images were acquired using a desktop 1300nm TD-OCT imaging system. The feasibility, robustness and safety of this set-up was demonstrated as a preliminary step to extending the use of this assembly to a clinical patient cohort with varying laryngeal pathologies.
