Abstract

Quantitative assessment of upper airway geometry using optical coherence tomography in burns patients could provide physicians with the information needed to make critical decisions. We have developed a high speed catheter based OCT system capable of real time imaging in airways up to 3cm in diameter. Preliminary scans of inhalation injured airways are presented to demonstrate the feasibility of aOCT as a diagnostic tool for assessing burns patients.
