    Ciliary beating and metachronal waves are fundamental to effective mucociliary transport. The ciliary beat frequencies (CBFs) and metachronal wave directions of multiple cilia beating in culture media were measured simultaneously using digital microscopic images. The degree of synchronisation...

    Background: Mucociliary clearance is a critical upper airway host defense mechanism. Ciliated epithelium in the mammalian airway continually beat at a baseline frequency. Importantly, during times of stress such as exercise or infection, the cilia beat faster to increase clearance. Nasal...

    Background: There are very few data on normal ciliary beat frequency, beat pattern, and ultrastructure in healthy children and adults. A study was undertaken to define ciliary structure, beat frequency and beat pattern in a healthy paediatric and young adult population. Methods: Ciliated...

    Background: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare congenital respiratory disorder characterized by abnormal ciliary motility leading to chronic airway infections. Qualitative evaluation of ciliary beat pattern based on digital high-speed videomicroscopy analysis has been proposed in the...

    Background: Mucociliary clearance, a primary host defense mechanism, depends on mucus production and its clearance by the coordinated beating of cilia lining the airways. Numerous investigations have analyzed ciliary activity in brushings from the inferior turbinate. To date, only one study has...

    Background: The diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) requires the analysis of ciliary function and ultrastructure. Diagnosis can be complicated by secondary effects on cilia such as damage during sampling, local inflammation or recent infection. To differentiate primary from secondary...

    Background: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a congenital hereditary disease affecting 1/20,000-60,000 people that causes chronic sinusitis, bronchiectasis, sinus hypoplasia, secretory otitis media, and low fertility. The complexity and heterogeneity of the disease make diagnosis difficult....

    Many marine invertebrates have planktonic larvae with cilia used for both propulsion and capturing of food particles. Hence, changes in ciliary activity have implications for larval nutrition and ability to navigate the water column, which in turn affect survival and dispersal. Using high-speed...

    We demonstrate the use of a high resolution form of optical coherence tomography, termed micro-OCT (µOCT), for investigating the functional microanatomy of airway epithelia. µOCT captures several key parameters governing the function of the airway surface (airway surface liquid depth,...
