Abstract

Fourier transform-second-harmonic generation imaging is employed to obtain quantitative metrics of collagen fibers in biological tissues. In particular, the preferred orientation and maximum spatial frequency of collagen fibers for selected regions of interest in porcine trachea, ear, and cornea are determined. These metrics remain consistent when applied to collagen fibers in the ear, which can be expected from observation. Collagen fibers in the trachea are more random with large standard deviations in orientation, and large variations in maximum spatial frequency. In addition, these metrics are used to investigate structural changes through a 3D stack of the cornea. This technique can be used as a quantitative marker to assess the structure of collagen fibers that may change due to damage from disease or physical injury.

(a) A movie showing the variations of the two quantitative markers, preferred orientation and F high versus depth (Media 2). (b–d) Plot of the estimated preferred orientation, and Fhigh as a function of depth in an SHG image stack of the cornea for regions 1–3 from Fig. 6. Note that our axial resolution is on the order of the wavelength (~700 nm), while we mechanically step through the depth of our sample in 163-nm increments using a precision motor control of the objective focus. Oversampling helps mitigate the effect of Poisson noise by improving the visibility due to more photons per pixel, and improve the precision to which we can locate image features [26]. Thus, our sensitivity to changes in the features is improved.
