Diagnostic Optical Imaging Technology and Its Principles
Analysis of tissue structures is important for investigating pathological changes and diagnosing neural diseases. Recent advances in ophthalmology regarding the diagnosis of neurosensory retinal diseases have introduced optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a near-infrared imaging modality to provide noninvasive and real-time imaging and sensing with ultrahigh resolution for imaging subsurface cross sections of the human retina. This chapter gives a brief overview and the basic principles of this emerging optical imaging modality.
