Cross-Polarization 1310-nm Optical Coherence Tomography for Dentistry


Caries Detection by CP-OCT and Bioluminance

These researchers are using MSI to mentor over six pediatric dental resident research projects. Mainly they are looking at new methods to detect caries in children. They primarily use Matlab to run custom program scripts based on various Matlab functions found in the Image Processing Toolbox. To date, they have found new ways to visualize near-infrared imaging using these tools and quantifying the degree of scattering and depolarization from these images. They use some iterative image processing algorithms that require MSI Matlab capabilities that would far exceed what can be done on a PC.

A bibliography of this group’s publications acknowledging MSI is attached.
