    Motion Estimation for Optical Coherence Elastography Using Signal Phase and Intensity

    Abstract —Displacement estimation in optical coherence tomog- raphy (OCT) imaging is relevant for several potential applica- tions, e.g. for optical coherence elastography (OCE) for corneal biomechanical characterization. Larger displacements may be resolved using correlation-based block matching techniques, which however are prone to signal de-correlation and imprecise at commonly desired sub-pixel resolutions. Phase-based tracking methods can estimate tiny sub-wavelength motion, but are not suitable for motion magnitudes larger than half the wavelength due to phase wrapping and the difficulty of any unwrapping due to noise. In this paper a robust OCT displacement estimation method is introduced by formulating tracking as ...
