    How to Acquire High-Resolution Anatomic Ocular Tissue Information with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Leica Science Lab

    OCT was first demonstrated in 1991 and was quickly recognized as an important tool in ophthalmology, rapidly becoming the standard of care in retinal diagnostics. Today, OCT is one of the most frequently ordered diagnostic tests. OCT technology is continually evolving, becoming increasingly popular in clinical and non-clinical imaging applications, including ophthalmic surgery, gastrointestinal imaging and interventional cardiology. OCT functions by a process very similar to ultrasound – except, of course, that is uses light instead of sound. Low intensity, near-infrared (NIR) light is directed at the patient. A small amount of this light is reflected back to the system and ...
