Acoustic radiation force optical coherence elastography for elasticity assessment of soft tissues.

Appl Spectrosc Rev 2019 25;54(6):457-481. Epub 2018 Jun 25.

Beckman Laser Institute, University of California, Irvine, Irvine, California 92612, USA.

Biomechanical properties of soft tissues are important indicators of tissue functions which can be used for clinical diagnosis and disease monitoring. Elastography, incorporating the principles of elasticity measurements into imaging modalities, provides quantitative assessment of elastic properties of biological tissues. Benefiting from high-resolution, noninvasive and three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (OCT), optical coherence elastography (OCE) is an emerging optical imaging modality to characterize and map biomechanical properties of soft tissues.

New insights into plant cell walls by vibrational microspectroscopy.

Appl Spectrosc Rev 2018 25;53(7):517-551. Epub 2017 Sep 25.

Department of Nanobiotechnology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria.

Vibrational spectroscopy provides non-destructively the molecular fingerprint of plant cells in the native state. In combination with microscopy, the chemical composition can be followed in context with the microstructure, and due to the non-destructive application, studies of changes during, e.g. Read More

Optical spectroscopic imaging for cell therapy and tissue engineering.

Appl Spectrosc Rev 2018 8;53(2-4):360-375. Epub 2017 Jun 8.

Gordon Center for Medical Imaging, Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Charlestown, Massachusetts, USA.

Cell-based therapies hold great potential to treat a wide range of human diseases, yet the mechanisms responsible for cell migration and homing are not fully understood. Emerging molecular imaging technology enables tracking of transplanted cells and their therapeutic efficacy, which together will improve the clinical outcome of cell-based therapy. Particularly, optical imaging provides highly sensitive, safe (non-radioactive), cost-effective, and fast solutions for real-time cellular trafficking compared to other conventional molecular imaging modalities.

Raman spectroscopy detects melanoma and the tissue surrounding melanoma using tissue-engineered melanoma models.

Appl Spectrosc Rev 2016 Apr 5;51(4):243-257. Epub 2016 Feb 5.

Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield , Sheffield , UK.

Invasion of melanoma cells from the primary tumor involves interaction with adjacent tissues and extracellular matrix. The extent of this interaction is not fully understood. In this study Raman spectroscopy was applied to cryo-sections of established 3D models of melanoma in human skin. Read More
