Optical coherence tomography for medical diagnostics


Conference Paper

© (1993) 2017 SPIE. Techniques for non -invasive biomedical imaging include nuclear magnetic resonance, ultrasound, positron emission tomography, x -ray computed tomography, and optical transillumination. Each of these methods has different advantages and limitations and has found particular applications in medicine. Optical imaging of tissue offers the potential of a non -invasive diagnostic with non -ionizing radiation and the possibility of using spectroscopic properties to distinguish tissue type and probe metabolic function.
