    Investigation of Puccinia triticina contagion on wheat leaves using swept source optical coherence tomography

    We present an investigation on applicability of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) to examine the internal structures of plant leaves. This study helps to identify the growth and spread of the leaf rust disease in leaves of wheat plants, caused by Puccinia triticina . The epidermal cell layer and parenchyma cell layer of the acquired OCT images are correlated with the histological images to show distinctive leaf morphological boundaries. In the OCT images, the thickness of the parenchyma cell layer in healthy and infected samples are compared and analyzed. Accurate morphological and quantitative information are obtained with our developed system for ...
