    1. Improving the Transverse Resolution of Optical Coherence Tomography with a Finite Impulse Response Filter and a Series of Numerically Refocused Images

      Improving the Transverse Resolution of Optical Coherence Tomography with a Finite Impulse Response Filter and a Series of Numerically Refocused Images

      Among the numerous methods for improving the informative value of the optical coherence tomography (OCT), a special place is taken by the methods for increasing the spatial resolution of the resulting images. Increasing the resolution allows one to identify more clinically significant structures in OCT images and thus improve the diagnostic value of OCT. Since the transverse resolution of OCT images is determined by the physical principles different from those for the longitudinal resolution, the ways of their improvement are also different. The aim of the study is to develop a method for increasing the transverse resolution of OCT by ...

    2. Time domain optical coherence tomography is a useful tool for diagnosing otitis media with effusion

      Time domain optical coherence tomography is a useful tool for diagnosing otitis media with effusion

      The usability of time-domain optical coherence tomography equipped with a flexible endoscopic probe for detecting effusion in the tympanic cavity is shown in the clinical environment. The possibility of assessing the dynamic properties of effusion, particularly its contained scatterers' mobility, is shown in real clinical cases. A method of comparative assessment of scatterers' mobility is proposed.

    3. Cross-Polarization Optical Coherence Tomography with Active Maintenance of the Circular Polarization of a Sounding Wave in a Common Path System

      Cross-Polarization Optical Coherence Tomography with Active Maintenance of the Circular Polarization of a Sounding Wave in a Common Path System

      We consider a cross-polarization optical coherence tomography system with a common path for the sounding and reference waves and active maintenance of the circular polarization of a sounding wave. The system is based on the formation of birefringent characteristics of the total optical path, which are equivalent to a quarter-wave plate with a 45° orientation of its optical axes with respect to the linearly polarized reference wave. Conditions under which any light-polarization state can be obtained using a two-element phase controller are obtained. The dependence of the local cross-scattering coefficient of light in a model medium and biological tissue on ...

    4. Equidistant Recording of the Spectral Components in Ultra-Wideband Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Equidistant Recording of the Spectral Components in Ultra-Wideband Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      We develop an effective method for reducing nonequidistance when recording the spectral components of an interference signal in ultra-wideband spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. For this purpose, a corrector consisting of two identical prisms is used in a diffraction-grating spectrometer. The corrector rotation with respect to the diffraction-grating plane and a variation in the angle between the corrector elements allow one to adjust the equidistant spatial distribution of the spectral components in the photoreceiver array. It is shown experimentally that the developed method substitutes digital correction and leads to a significant reduction of the computational load in the optical coherence tomography ...

    5. A data-acquisition and control system for spectral-domain optical coherence tomography with a speed of 91 912 A-scans/s based on a USB 3.0 interface

      A data-acquisition and control system for spectral-domain optical coherence tomography with a speed of 91 912 A-scans/s based on a USB 3.0 interface

      We describe a system of optical spectrum registration at the output of an interferometer with controlled phase shifts for an experimental device intended for visualizing the internal structure of an optically turbid specimen, using the method of spectral domain optical coherence tomography. A device for spectral domain optical coherence tomography based on a common-path optical scheme with a USB 3.0 interface for inputting data into a computer has been developed. An imaging speed of 91 912 A-scans/s has been attained. At the achieved speed, a series of live experiments were carried out to visualize the internal structure of ...

    6. Improvement of lateral resolution of spectral domain optical coherence tomography images inout-of-focus regions with holographic data processing techniques

      Improvement of lateral resolution of spectral domain optical coherence tomography images inout-of-focus regions with holographic data processing techniques

      An analogy between spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) data and broadband digital holography data is considered. Based on this analogy, a method for processing SD OCT data, which makes it possible to construct images with a lateral resolution in the whole investigated volume equal to the resolution in the in-focus region, is developed. Several issues concerning practical application of the proposed method are discussed.

    7. Achromatic registration of quadrature components of the optical spectrum in spectral domain opticalcoherence tomography

      Achromatic registration of quadrature components of the optical spectrum in spectral domain opticalcoherence tomography

      We have thoroughly investigated the method of simultaneous reception of spectral components with the achromatised quadrature phase shift between two portions of a reference wave, designed for the effective suppression of the 'mirror' artefact in the resulting image obtained by means of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT). We have developed and experimentally tested a phase-shifting element consisting of a beam divider, which splits the reference optical beam into the two beams, and of delay lines being individual for each beam, which create a mutual phase difference of π/2 in the double pass of the reference beam. The phase ...

    8. Digital refocusing for transverse resolution improvement in optical coherence tomography

      Digital refocusing for transverse resolution improvement in optical coherence tomography

      Based on the fact that spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) data can be treated as digital holography (DH) data acquired pointwise, we develop a spectral refocusing algorithm and show its ability to shift the focal region of OCT images obtained from SD OCT data acquired with a tightly focused scanning beam. Although refocusing itself depends on the refractive index of the studied media, we propose a procedure capable of restoring images with resolution equal to the resolution in the focal plane in the whole volume even in case of unknown refractive index of the media. As the proposed ...

      Electronic interface systems for goals of spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      A setup for visualizing the internal structure of media, which partially scatter radiation, using the spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) method is described. The special complex of electron interface systems, ensuring the operating speed of the spectral domain OCT system at a level of 10000 A-scans (longitudinal scans along the depth) per second, high dynamic imaging range, and complete suppression of coherent noise peculiar to the spectral method has been designed to eliminate artifacts characteristic of this method.

    10. Suppression of image autocorrelation artefacts in spectral domain optical coherence tomography and multiwave digital holography

      Suppression of image autocorrelation artefacts in spectral domain optical coherence tomography and multiwave digital holography

      An improved method for suppressing image artefacts in spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) and multiwave digital holography, caused by the influence of coherent noise in the course of successive registration of an autocorrelation component and informative signal is reported. The method allows complete suppression of all types of coherent noises, provided that the sample of values used to record the autocorrelation component satisfies the conditions of Kotelnikov's theorem: in SD OCT — for the transverse structure of the studied medium, in multiwave digital holography — for the envelop function of the radiation source frequency tuning spectrum.

    11. Coherent noise compensation in Spectral-Domain optical coherence tomography

      Abstract  An efficient technique for the separation of and compensation for coherent noise in spectral optical coherence tomography with parallel spectrum detection is proposed and validated. The coherent noise is separated during one exposure by modulating the mutual delay of the signal and reference waves by a certain law. It is shown that the influence of internal motions in an object on the quality of the coherent noise separation can be reduced by the modulation frequency increasing. The technique has been numerically and experimentally validated with the help of an optical coherence tomography (OCT) setup with a radiation source operating ...
