Feasibility Study of Determining the Healing Phase of Achilles Tendon Rupture in Rats Using Optical Coherence Tomography
Journal of the Optical Society of Korea
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive technique for microscopic investigation of tissue. We thought that the OCT method could be a potential tool for monitoring the healing process of a tendon. In this study we used two rat models, denervated and non-denervated groups, to observe a variety of healing phases of Achilles tendon (AT) injury. We made samples of AT injury lesions, to take OCT images and to make histopathological samples of serial sectional tissue. In an OCT image thedoi:10.3807/josk.2015.19.2.175 fatcat:sdki5u35svasfjc7j37jpbpl5u
