Salehi Presents and Publishes Research Paper at OSA International Biomedical Optics Congress
Hassan S. Salehi, PhD, visiting assistant professor of
electrical and computer engineering at the University of Hartford, has
presented and published a research paper at Optical Society of America (OSA)
International Biomedical Optics Congress. The conference was held 25-28 April
2016 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This research work was done in collaboration
with the University of Connecticut (UCONN) School of Dental Medicine and the
Stony Brook University School of Dental.
In this paper, "Utilizing Optical Coherence Tomography and Cone
Beam Computed Tomography for Oral Tissues Characterization: Ex vivo Study,"
human specimens were imaged ex vivo using optical coherence tomography (OCT)
and compared with images obtained from cone beam computed tomography.
Furthermore, image processing techniques were applied to characterize oral
tissues. The results show that OCT can reliably differentiate between oral
tissues, and that could be extremely valuable in assisting physicians for in
vivo evaluation of oral tissues and early cancer detection.
