    The Clinical Application of Optical Coherence Tomography for Head and Neck Premalignant/Malignant Lesions (Thesis)

    Abstract The principle of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is based on the property of light coherence. OCT generates cross-sectional images of two-dimensional objects to obtain in-vitro and in-vivo images of tissues. Non–commercially available OCT systems, which have a higher resolution and scanning rate, have been previously reported. However, some clinical research has already been conducted using the first commercially available OCT device (Niris system) to image the larynx; but applications on oral and skin tissue have not been tested yet. This thesis aims to explore, compare and validate three specific types of commercially available OCT equipment for imaging head ...
