Trial Information

Optical Coherence Tomography of Human Airways


OBJECTIVES:

- Correlate optical coherence tomography images of the airway with airway histology.

- Develop an imaging technique to detect premalignant airway epithelial changes
(carcinoma in situ, dysplasia) to study the transformation process as well as intervene
and prevent the development of lung cancer.

OUTLINE: Bronchoscopic imaging and optical coherence tomography are performed on lung tissue
samples collected during surgery. All imaged areas are marked. The marked areas are then
excised and fixed in formalin for histopathologic analysis.
