Optical coherence tomography in multiply scattering tissue


Conference Paper

© 2018 SPIE. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a new technique that is used to obtain cross-sectional images of highly scattering tissue. OCT has been applied to image both architectural and cellular morphologic structures in clinically relevant in vitro human tissues, including the human epiglottis and full-thickness skin. The performance of OCT at 850 nm and 1300 nm is compared. In addition, high numerical aperture OCT enhanced confocal microscopy have potential for non-invasive in vivo diagnosis.
