    Full-field OCT: a non-invasive tool for diagnosis and tissue selection

    Full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT) enables in-depth, high-resolution tissue imaging at the cellular level. Pathologists using the technology achieve high sensitivity scores, offering possible future improvements in healthcare quality and decreases in costs, especially for cancer care.

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT), on which the technique is based, undertakes interferometric selection of singly backscattered photons using superposition of waves to decipher their characteristics). It is a powerful technique for imaging biological tissues, particularly for eye examination.1 FFOCT, in contrast with most OCT approaches (time domain- or Fourier domain OCT, for example), directly takes 2D ‘ en face' images using megapixel cameras ...
