Elastography and related methods to image the mechanical properties of tissue have been developed across a range of spatial scales, from the cellular, for example, using atomic force microscopy, through to the whole organ, using ultrasound elastography and magnetic resonance elastography. However, existing techniques are not capable of probing tissue mechanical properties on the intermediate micro- to milli-scale: a scale critical in the onset and progression of many diseases. Optical coherence elastography (OCE) aims to bridge the scale gap in elastography techniques. Through the utilization of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure tissue motion, OCE is endowed with spatial resolution as high as 1-10 micrometers, much higher than is possible using ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging. In addition, OCE is sensitive to tissue displacements on the nanometer-scale, enabling the detection of very fine changes in mechanical properties.
