Abstract

We present the first, most compact, ultrahigh-resolution, high-speed, distal scanning optical coherence tomography (OCT) endoscope operating at 800 nm. Achieving high speed imaging while maintaining an ultrahigh axial resolution is one of the most significant challenges with endoscopic OCT at 800 nm. Maintaining an ultrahigh axial resolution requires preservation of the broad spectral bandwidth of the light source throughout the OCT system. To overcome this critical limitation we implemented a distal scanning endoscope with diffractive optics to minimize loss in spectral throughput. In this paper, we employed a customized miniature 900 µm diameter DC micromotor fitted with a micro reflector to scan the imaging beam. We integrated a customized diffractive microlens into the imaging optics to reduce chromatic focal shift over the broad spectral bandwidth of the Ti:Sapphire laser of an approximately 150 nm 3dB bandwidth, affording a measured axial resolution of 2.4 µm (in air). The imaging capability of this high-speed, ultrahigh-resolution distal scanning endoscope was validated by performing 3D volumetric imaging of mouse colon in vivo at 50 frames-per-second (limited only by the A-scan rate of linear CCD array in the spectral-domain OCT system and sampling requirements). The results demonstrated that fine microstructures of colon could be clearly visualized, including the boundary between the absorptive cell layer and colonic mucosa as well the crypt patterns. Furthermore, this endoscope was employed to visualize morphological changes in an enterotoxigenic Bacteriodes fragilis (ETBF) induced colon tumor model. We present the results of our feasibility studies and suggest the potential of this system for visualizing time dependent morphological changes associated with tumorigenesis on murine models in vivo.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 (A) Schematic of the distal optics design of our distal scanning endoscope. (B) Schematic of the diffractive lens. Side view shows the periodic structure, while the top view showing the concentric ring pattern etched on the element to enable compensation of chromatic aberration. (C) Verification of achromaticity of the imaging optics. The curves are normalized spectra back-reflected from a mirror at the various locations along the imaging depth (i.e. at the focal plane, and 500 µm and 900 µm away from the focal plane as shown in (A)).
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (A) Detailed distal end schematic of our endoscope. (B) Photograph of the customized 900 µm diameter DC micromotor. (C) 3D drawing of the laser-cut enclosure. SA: Two ultrathin struts supporting the slit running along the length of the enclosure, SB: Two remaining struts placed ± 108° from support struts SA. (D) Photograph of the assembled endoscope inside a protective plastic sheath (of an overall outer diameter of 1.78 mm). An arrow in (D) and an arrow in (B) point to the forward feeding wires which exit the motor proximally and run from the back towards the motor shaft, avoiding wires bending-180° around the motor.

Fig. 3 Ultrahigh-resolution endoscopic SD-OCT system. Linear-k-spectrometer: G: volumetric transmission grating, P: prism, MESL: multi-element scan lens. Reference arm: PC: polarization controller, C: collimator, PP: prism pair, M: mirror. Sample arm: TS: linear translation stage. Inset: representative axial point spread function from the ultrahigh-resolution OCT endoscope.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 (A) Representative cross-sectional image of mouse colon in vivo and (B) 3x zoomed view of the region indicated by the red dashed-line box on the cross-sectional image in (A), showing boundary between absorptive cell layer and colonic mucosa. AC: absorptive cell lining, CM: colonic mucosa, MM: Muscular mucosa, SM: submucosa, S: serosa, MS: metal strut, St: stool. (C) Volume rendering of an about 11.5 mm long segment of one representative 3D pullback scan. (D) Flattened en face intensity projection view of a representative portion of the colon during pullback imaging and (E) 5x zoomed view of the region marked by the blue dashed-line box in (D), highlighting crypt structure of colon. MS: metal strut, Cc: colonic crypts.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 En face intensity projection views and cross-sectional views of mouse colon. The progression from mainly uniform and homogenous baseline structural image (A) to many abnormal looking polyp structures clearly visible (C), (E), (G) as the disease progresses to day 58. The orange arrows point to the transition from colon to rectum marked by the sudden hyperintense signal region. The dark blue arrows point to abnormal regions corresponding to suspected tumors and the red asterisks indicate the location of a growing tumor. The red asterisks lie above a region which has rapidly develop a tumor. Cross-sectional images (B), (D), (F) and (H) are from a representative location in (A), (C), (E), and (G) indicated by the cyan dashed line. Several structures are labeled on the cross-sectional images. CM: colonic mucosa, MM: muscularis mucosa, SM: submucosa, ME: muscularis externa, and P: polyp.
