A study to be published in Theranostics and based on about 26,000 optical tomography images from colorectal tissue samples found that an OCT-based imaging technique paired with deep learning had 100% accuracy in detecting tumors in real time, compared with pathology reports. Researchers also found that the technique had 100% sensitivity and 99.7% specificity in making colorectal cancer diagnoses, compared with using traditional histology.
