    Faster, wider, deeper: imaging advances in focus at Hot Topics session

    Continuing the theme, Yoshiaki Yasuno from the University of Tsukuba in Japan followed Xu with a talk on extending optical coherence tomography (OCT) toward multiple-contrast imaging. Yasuno notes that although several such extensions, like Doppler OCT, OCT angiography, and polarization-sensitive OCT, have been investigated for several years, image interpretation is often complicated, so the clinical value of the techniques has only been recognized recently. The Tsukuba group studies various forms of OCT and their applications in ophthalmology and dermatology. Work being presented at Photonics West 2019 included compression-based, polarization-sensitive optical coherence elastography (PS-OCE), developed for simultaneous analysis of bire¬fringence ...
