    Spatial resolution in optical coherence elastography of bounded media

    Dynamic optical coherence elastography (OCE) tracks mechanical wave propagation in the subsurface region of tissue to image its shear modulus. For bulk shear waves, the lateral resolution of the reconstructed modulus map (i.e., elastographic resolution) can approach that of optical coherence tomography (OCT), typically a few tens of microns. Here we perform comprehensive numerical simulations and acoustic micro-tapping OCE experiments to show that for the typical situation of guided wave propagation in bounded media, such as cornea, the elastographic resolution cannot reach the OCT resolution and is mainly defined by the thickness of the bounded tissue layer. We considered ...
