    Correlation between polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography and SHG microscopy in articular cartilage

    Polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) and second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy are two imaging modalities with different resolutions, field-of-views (FOV), and contrasts, while they both have the capability of imaging collagen fibers in biological tissues. PS-OCT can measure the tissue birefringence which is induced by highly organized fibers while SHG can image the collagen fiber organization with high resolution. Articular cartilage, with abundant structural collagen fibers, is a suitable sample to study the correlation between PS-OCT and SHG microscopy. Qualitative conjecture has been made that the phase retardation measured by PS-OCT is affected by the relationship between the collagen fiber ...
