Trial Information

Optical Coherence Tomography for Early Detection and Staging of Endobronchial Lung and Pleural Cancer, Airway Injury, and Prostate Cancer


Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that can provide
information about tissue abnormalities. This technique uses a near-infrared diode to emit
light that can produce images of the specimen under investigation without causing damage or
alterations.

The research' want to compare the OCT results with that obtained from conventional
histologic examination and to show that the OCT results may be almost as accurate as the
standard Pathology results.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new technique being developed that can be used for
visualizing human tissue. OCT offers a means of providing information on the characteristics
and extent of a lesion (and abnormal change in structure of an organ).
