Segmentation of anatomical layers and imaging artifacts in intravascular polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography using attending physician and boundary cardinality losses

In this work, Dr. Mohammad Haft-Javaherian presents a convolutional neural network model, optimized using two new loss terms (Boundary Cardinality and Attending Physician), that takes advantage of the additional polarization contrast provided by polarization-sensitive OCT and classifies the lumen, intima, and media layers in addition to guidewire and plaque shadows.

CBORT OCT/OFDI Raw Data Reconstruction

Python Package on Github

CBORT is excited to announce that it has developed an open source Python package for reconstructing raw OCT/OFDI available through GitHub as a general tool for dissemination and education. When coupled with acquisition frameworks, this new package allows for automated processing of raw OCT data into analyzable images with little to no user input.
