About the Project
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive, label-free, real time, in vivo assessment tool. It is a tomographic technique using low-intensity infrared light focused within the tissue, providing depth-resolved 2-D or 3-D tissue morphology images up to 3mm deep with resolution of a few micrometres. This project will bring together technologies in high-resolution, sensitive OCT configurations by integrating micro-vascular and stiffness mapping functions with traditional OCT. Successful outcomes would be a novel functional OCT system that capable of non-invasive measurement of lesion dimensions, peri-vascular involvement and stiffness distribution to demonstrate diagnostic signatures of suspected NMSCs and a scheme for its incorporation into dermatology clinics whereby in-situ monitoring of process integrity is enabled. Data sets from healthy volunteers and patients will be collected and analysed to evaluate and demonstrate the applicability of this emergingtechnology to current NMSC diagnosis and screening protocols.
