Tissue Microstructure of Surgical Specimens depicted with Optical Coherence Tomography

Perimeter Medical Imaging (PMI) has developed an investigational imaging device to aid in achieving clear margins during surgical oncology procedures. This project will employ PMI’s device to image multiple types of human tissues, which have been previously removed during elective or medical procedures. This study will correlate the images obtained using PMI’s device with the true microscopic structure of the tissue, as confirmed by a pathologist. These images will become part of a database of correlated images, which can be used to study the accuracy and precision of PMI’s device, and help to understand and improve upon this technology.
