    A Generic Framework for Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging: Software Architecture and Hardware Implementations

    Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT), including spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) and swept-source OCT (SS-OCT), allows the volumetric imaging of the tissue architecture with a faster speed and higher detection sensitivity than does time-domain OCT. Although the hardware implementations of SD-OCT and SS-OCT are different, these technologies share very similar signal processing steps for image reconstruction. In this study, we developed hardware implementations and software architectures to design a generic framework for FD-OCT. For SD-OCT systems, an external synchronization approach was used to realize a data acquisition schematic similar to that used in SS-OCT by carefully managing the timing clocks in the ...
