Paper Abstract

As an emerging technique capable of providing cellular/subcellular-level tissue microstructure images, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is regarded to be a viable tool for early disease diagnosis, yet few studies on pancreatic imaging have ever been reported in literature. In this paper, we utilized a lab-built micro-OCT (μOCT) for cellular/subcellular pancreatic imaging for both normal tissues and those specimens with edema, and evaluate the feasibility of OCT as an imaging tool for early pancreatic disease diagnosis. Results show that the cellular/subcellular-level pancreatic microstructures of normal tissues could be clearly identified, and is quite different from those in tissues with edema. Such results demonstrate the great potential of μOCT as a viable tool for pancreatic tissue imaging in clinical practice.
