    Advances in Optical Coherence Tomography

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution, three-dimensional, noninvasive imaging technique. It is often called an optical ultrasound because it relies on time-of-flight information, similar to ultrasound imaging, to obtain subsurface information. The success of this technique has been fueled by a unique combination of technical and commercial factors, which include major investment in lasers, optical fibers, and sensors for telecommunications. That OCT is benefitting from these advances is proven in its applications across the health care industry. With close to a billion-dollar market size, OCT is seeing increased acceptance in areas such as interventional cardiology, dermatology, and ophthalmology, and ...
