Title: Analysis of distortions in the velocity profiles of suspension flows inside a light-scattering medium upon their reconstruction from the optical coherence Doppler tomograph signal

Abstract

Model signals from one and two plane flows of a particle suspension are obtained for an optical coherence Doppler tomograph (OCDT) by the Monte-Carlo method. The optical properties of particles mimic the properties of non-aggregating erythrocytes. The flows are considered in a stationary scattering medium with optical properties close to those of the skin. It is shown that, as the flow position depth increases, the flow velocity determined from the OCDT signal becomes smaller than the specified velocity and the reconstructed profile extends in the direction of the distant boundary, which is accompanied by the shift of its maximum. In the case of two flows, an increase in the velocity of the near-surface flow leads to the overestimated values of velocity of the reconstructed profile of the second flow. Numerical simulations were performed by using a multiprocessor parallel-architecture computer. (laser applications in medicine)

  • Model signals of an optical coherence Doppler tomograph (OCDT) are obtained by the Monte Carlo method from a flow of a light-scattering suspension of lipid vesicles (intralipid) at concentrations from 0.7% to 1.5% with an a priori specified parabolic velocity profile. The velocity profile parameters reconstructed from the OCDT signal and scattering orders of the photons contributing to the signal are studied as functions of the suspension concentration. It is shown that the maximum of the reconstructed velocity profile at high concentrations shifts with respect to the symmetry axis of the flow and its value decreases due to a greatermore » contribution from multiply scattered photons.

  • A highly sensitive detection system with time-resolved photon counting was developed for modulation optical tomography (diode laser with a power of 15-30 mW, modulation frequency 100 MHz) of extended scattering objects. Experiments with model objects (linear dimensions up to 140 mm, absorption coefficients of 0.005-0.015, scattering coefficients of 1.4 mm{sup -1}) showed that the propagation of optical radiation in such media is described by a relative path-lengthening coefficient which varied in the range 1.2-4.2, depending on the absorption coefficient and on the size of the object. A rapid projection algorithm for the solution of the inverse problem was used inmore » the reconstruction of images of strongly absorbing inclusions known as 'phantoms' (cylinders 10-23 mm in diameter). An algorithm was developed for the solution of the direct problem, which made it possible to reduce the solution time to 5-10 min. (laser applications and other topics in quantum electronics)« less
  • The optical distortions of active dye solutions excited by a commercial coaxial lamp pump, and their effect on the spatial coherence of laser radiation with an unstable resonator are studied experimentally. It is shown that the acoustic wave from the pump lamp originating in the cell with the active solution induces in it an optical inhomogeneity with an increasing refractive index gradient towards the axis and amplitude distortions approx. >30lambda, then developing into an irregular grid of small-scale dynamic inhomogeneities scattering light intensely at small angles, moving to the center of the cell. A sharp drop in spatial coherence ofmore » laser radiation is the result of the action of this wave. Based on these studies, requirements are determined on laser head design, homogeneity of the active medium and resonator parameters. Satisfaction of these requirements ensure in the experiment lasing radiation with spatial coherence close to unity over the entire cross section of the laser beam.« less
  • Optical Coherence Tomography is often used in medical image acquisition to diagnose that change due easy to use and low price. Unfortunately, this type of examination produces a two-dimensional retinal image of the point of acquisition. Therefore, this study developed a method that combines and reconstruct 2-dimensional retinal images into three-dimensional images to display volumetric macular accurately. The system is built with three main stages: data acquisition, data extraction and 3-dimensional reconstruction. At data acquisition step, Optical Coherence Tomography produced six *.jpg images of each patient were further extracted with MATLAB 2010a software into six one-dimensional arrays. The six arraysmore » are combined into a 3-dimensional matrix using a kriging interpolation method with SURFER9 resulting 3-dimensional graphics of macula. Finally, system provides three-dimensional color graphs based on the data distribution normal macula. The reconstruction system which has been designed produces three-dimensional images with size of 481 × 481 × h (retinal thickness) pixels.« less
  • We have developed a novel phase-resolved optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical Doppler tomography (ODT) system that uses phase information derived from a Hilbert transformation to image blood flow in human skin with fast scanning speed and high velocity sensitivity. Using the phase change between sequential scans to construct flow-velocity imaging, this technique decouples spatial resolution and velocity sensitivity in flow images and increases imaging speed by more than 2 orders of magnitude without compromising spatial resolution or velocity sensitivity. The minimum flow velocity that can be detected with an axial-line scanning speed of 400 Hz and an average phasemore » change over eight sequential scans is as low as 10 {mu}m/s , while a spatial resolution of 10 {mu}m is maintained. Using this technique, we present what are to our knowledge the first phase-resolved OCT/ODT images of blood flow in human skin. (c) 2000 Optical Society of America.« less
