    Image enhancement in optical coherence tomography using deconvolution
    The present invention provides an improved optical coherence tomography system and involves estimating the impulse response (which is indicative of the actual reflecting and scattering sites within a tissue sample) from the output interferometric signal of an interferometer according to the following steps: (a) acquiring auto-correlation data from the interferometer system; (b) acquiring cross-correlation data from the interferometer system having the biological tissue sample in the sample arm; and (c) processing the auto-correlation data and the cross correlation data to produce an optical impulse response of the tissue. The impulse response may be obtained from the cross-correlation and auto-correlation data ...
