OCE Assessment of Heart Attack Damage (IMAGE) The Optical Society Caption Researchers used optical coherence elastography for biomechanical assessment of tissue damage caused by a heart attack in mice. The overlays in the left image show direction-dependent differences between healthy (top) and damaged tissue (bottom). The overlay in the right image show spatially resolved tissue stiffness measurements obtained with OCE. The green shows healthy region while the yellow, red areas are damaged regions with decreased elasticity. Credit Kirill V.
