Trial Information

Optical Coherence Tomography of Airway and Pleural Disorders


Optical methods for obtaining images in airway passages for early detection of endobronchial
lung and pleural cancer are needed. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive or
minimally invasive diagnostic technique that can provide information about tissue
abnormalities.

OCT can produce images of abnormalities both at and below the surface of the airways without
damaging the tissue surface This technique uses a harmless device to emit infrared (not
visible) light that can produce images of the specimen under investigation without causing
damage or alterations.
