Paper Abstract

Limited visualization of semi-transparent structures in the eye remains a critical barrier to improving clinical outcomes and developing novel surgical techniques. While increases in imaging speed has enabled intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) imaging of surgical dynamics, several critical barriers to clinical adoption remain. Specifically, these include (1) static field-of-views (FOVs) requiring manual instrument-tracking; (2) high frame-rates require sparse sampling, which limits FOV; and (3) small iOCT FOV also limits the ability to co-register data with surgical microscopy. We previously addressed these limitations in image-guided ophthalmic microsurgery by developing microscope-integrated multimodal intraoperative swept-source spectrally encoded scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and optical coherence tomography. Complementary en face images enabled orientation and coregistration with the widefield surgical microscope view while OCT imaging enabled depth-resolved visualization of surgical instrument positions relative to anatomic structures-of-interest. In addition, we demonstrated novel integrated segmentation overlays for augmented-reality surgical guidance. Unfortunately, our previous system lacked the resolution and optical throughput for in vivo retinal imaging and necessitated removal of cornea and lens. These limitations were predominately a result of optical aberrations from imaging through a shared surgical microscope objective lens, which was modeled as a paraxial surface. Here, we present an optimized intraoperative spectrally encoded coherence tomography and reflectometry (iSECTR) system. We use a novel lens characterization method to develop an accurate model of surgical microscope objective performance and balance out inherent aberrations using iSECTR relay optics. Using this system, we demonstrate in vivo multimodal ophthalmic imaging through a surgical microscope
