    Comparison of artifact generation with catheter bending using different PS-OCT approaches
    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a promising biomedical imaging tool for detecting pathology at a micron scale. In addition to performing structural imaging, other adjuvant techniques are available with OCT. In particular, polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) can be used, either through a single or dual detector approach, to assess collagen concentration and organization. In this paper, we compare the ability of single and dual detector PS-OCT with respect to catheter bending artifacts. It was found that even severe catheter bending resulted in no significant difference in quantitative birefringence measurement with the single detector approach. However, when the dual detector ...
