    Endoscopic Functional Fourier Domain Common-Path Optical Coherence Tomography for Microsurgery
    A single-arm interferometer-based optical coherence tomography (OCT) system known as common-path OCT (CP-OCT) is rapidly progressing towards practical application. Due in part to the simplicity and robustness of its design, Fourier domain CP-OCT (FD-CP-OCT) offers advantages in many endoscopic sensing and imaging applications. FD-CP-OCT uses simple, interchangeable fiber optic probes that are easily integrated into small and delicate surgical tools. The system is capable of providing not only high-resolution imaging but also optical sensing. Here, we report progress towards practical application of FD-CP-OCT in the setting of delicate microsurgical procedures such as intraocular retinal surgery. To meet the challenges presented ...
