    Optical Coherence Tomography for Quantitative Diagnosis in Cardiovascular Disease (Book Chapter)

    In recent years, biomedical imaging technology has made rapid advances that enable the visualization, quantification, and monitoring of morphology and function. There are several tomography modalities which are currently used in clinics, such as computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound (US), etc. These modalities have been developed for in vivo structural and functional imaging in humans, but frequently require large, expensive and complex systems. The penetration depth of these tomographic techniques is long, but the spatial resolution is typically on the order of several millimeters or hundred of micrometers.
