Abstract
(EN)
Exemplary systems, devices, methods, apparatus and computer-accessible media for providing and/or utilizing optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) and fluorescence of structures and, e.g., multimodality imaging using OFDI techniques and fluorescence imaging techniques are described. For example, an arrangement can provide at least one electro-magnetic radiation to an anatomical structure. Such exemplary arrangement can include at least one optical core and at least one cladding at least partially surrounding the fiber(s). A region between the optical core(s) and the cladding(s) can have an index that is different from indexes of the optical core(s) and the cladding(s). The arrangement can also include at least one apparatus which is configured to transmit the radiation(s) via the optical core(s) and the cladding(s) to the anatomical structure.

L'invention concerne, à titre d'exemple, des systèmes, des dispositifs, des procédés, un appareil et des supports accessibles par ordinateur afin d'obtenir et/ou d'utiliser une imagerie en domaine de fréquence optique (OFDI) et la fluorescence de structures et, par exemple, une imagerie multimodale utilisant les techniques OFDI et les techniques d'imagerie par fluorescence. Par exemple, un agencement peut fournir un rayonnement électromagnétique vers une structure anatomique. Cet agencement donné comme exemple peut comprendre au moins un noyau optique et au moins un revêtement qui entoure au moins partiellement la ou les fibres. Une région entre le ou les noyaux optiques et le ou les revêtements peut avoir un indice qui est différent des indices du ou des noyaux optiques et du ou des revêtements. Cet agencement peut également comprendre au moins un appareil conçu pour transmettre le ou les rayonnements via le ou les noyaux et le ou les revêtements vers la structure anatomique.
