Long working distance OCT with a compact 2f retinal scanning configuration for pediatric imaging.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Young and/or autistic children cannot be imaged with tabletop or handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT) because of their lack of attention and fear of large objects close to their face. We demonstrate a prototype retinal swept-source OCT system with a long working distance (from the last optical element to the subject's eye) to facilitate pediatric imaging. To reduce the number of optical elements and axial length compared to the traditional 4f telescope, we employ a compact 2f retinal scanning configuration and achieve a working distance of 350 mm with a 16° OCT field of view. We test our prototype system on pediatric and adult subjects.
