Special Issue "Biomedical Applications of Optical Coherence Tomography" in the journal of Bioengineering
Since its invention in 1991, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has rapidly become one of the most important clinical tools in the field of ophthalmology. In recent years, applications of this inherently non-invasive and label-free three-dimensional imaging technique have extended far beyond retinal and corneal imaging. OCT applications are being increasingly used in medicine in fields including dermatology, endoscopy and neurology, and advances in system technology and image processing mean that the resultant images are approaching cellular resolution over a wide field of view. Through the constant development of new technologies and functional extensions, OCT continues to move into new areas of biomedical application.
This Special Issue will focus on the most recent advances in biomedical applications of optical coherence tomography. The addressed topics include, but are not limited to:
- Optical coherence tomography;
- Optical coherence microscopy;
- Optical coherence angiography;
- Dynamic OCT;
- Doppler OCT;
- Polarization-sensitive OCT;
- Spectroscopic OCT;
- Optical coherence elastography;
- OCT and artificial intelligence;
- OCT for basic research (ex vivo, in vitro or in vivo models);
- OCT for clinical studies in the field of biomedical research.
Original research contributions will be prioritized, but critical reviews about the state of the art, current limitations and future perspectives are also welcome.
