New Publication – Using OCT to Characterize Cervical Collagen Direction

With our collaborator Christine Hendon in Electrical Engineering here at Columbia, we have characterized the collagen fiber directionality of the human cervix using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Our results are now published in a study entitled, Collagen Fiber Orientation and Dispersion in the Upper Cervix of Non-Pregnant and Pregnant Women on the PLOS ONE website. The study is co-authored by Wang (Frank) Yao from the Myers lab and Yu Gan from the Hendon lab.

All raw data are available on the Columbia University Academic Commons website (
