    Optical coherence tomography - from research to routine medical diagnostics

    In the field of biomedical optics, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is one of the success stories of transition from research to routine medical diagnostics. This talk will focus on OCT as an interesting case study for successful technologies in the medical field, in particular in ophthalmology. Despite being a unique solution for the technical problems of imaging into the eye, it took more than 15 years to establish OCT as a routine diagnostic tool in ophthalmology. The presentation will highlight the technical and clinical milestones that drove this development. One of the technical milestones was the transition from time-domain OCT ...
