Preliminary study on optical coherence tomography for brachytherapy guidance

Wednesday, 25 May, 2011 - 11:32
Board 1

Preliminary study on optical coherence tomography for brachytherapy guidance Focal therapy requires precise localization of the target, and a navigated treatment  Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) remains the preferable image modality for the prostate, although needles inserted during brachy-therapy can cause substantial artifacts Yet,  the needles penetrate prostate tissue and could be used for high resolution imaging from within the target region (Fig. 1a) [1] We study how optical coherence tomography (OCT) images can be obtained and mapped against histology data
