    Catheter-Based Polarization Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography Using Similar Mueller Matrix Method

    Objective : Research of catheter-based polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) is a challenging field. In this paper, we present a new polarization determination method, similar Mueller matrix (SMM) method, for a catheter-based PS-OCT system using a standard clinical catheter probe with an outer diameter of 0.9 mm. Methods : The SMM method can remove the diattenuation and depolarization compositions by polar decomposition. By constructing the similarity between the measured Mueller matrices and sample matrices, the phase retardance of the sample can be determined from the trace of the measured matrices. Results : In the experiments, we find that images processed by ...
