    Visible light spectroscopic optical coherence tomography for applications in neonatal healthcare (Thesis)

    In this thesis, we explored the opportunities of spatially resolved optical spectroscopy for neonatal healthcare. Hereto, we developed a setup that makes use of spectroscopic optical coherence tomography (sOCT). This technique allows for spectroscopic measurement of the attenuation of light within a confined measurement volume, without being influenced by surrounding tissues. Throughout this thesis, we explored the possibilities of sOCT for estimating tissue properties which are relevant to newborns. In this way, we hope to contribute to neonatal healthcare by enabling a non-invasive alternative for invasive blood sampling and by enabling more scientific research into human milk and lactation. The ...
