    2. Optical tomographic imaging apparatus and optical tomographic imaging method

      Optical tomographic imaging apparatus and optical tomographic imaging method
      In an optical tomographic imaging apparatus, a wavelength of a light beam emitted from the light source is selected by a light source section filter, and the light beam emitted from the light source is split into a measurement light beam and a reference light beam. The measurement light beam is reflected from a measurement subject when the measurement light beam is irradiated, is amplified. A specific wavelength from the amplified reflected light beam is selected by an amplifying section filtering mechanism having a filter characteristic identical to a time variation characteristic of the light source section filter, and then ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography method

      Low coherence light is divided into measuring light and reference light. The measuring light is collected to be projected onto an object of measurement. Intensities of the reflected light in a plurality of positions in the direction of depth are detected by carrying out a Fourier analysis on each channeled spectrum obtained by decomposing the detected interference light into frequency components. The optical path length of the reference light is stepwise changed to adjust the optical path length within the focusing range of the measuring light. A plurality of pieces of data representing the intensity of the reflected light are ...

    4. Optical tomography method and optical tomography system

      Light emitted from a light source is divided into measuring light and reference light. The reflected light from the object and the reference light are superposed. Interference light of the reflected light and reference light which have been superposed is detected. Intensities of the reflected light in a plurality of positions in the direction of depth of the object are detected on the basis of the frequency and the intensity, and a tomographic image of the object is obtained on the basis of the intensity of the reflected light in each position in the direction of depth. A compensating signal ...

    5. Optical tomography apparatus

      Low coherence light having a central wavelength .lamda.c of 1.1 .mu.m and a full width at half maximum spectrum .DELTA..lamda. of 90 nm is emitted. The low coherence light has wavelength properties suited for the light absorbing properties, the diffusion properties, and the dispersion properties of living tissue. A light dividing means divides the low coherence light into a measuring light beam, which is irradiated onto a measurement target via an optical probe, and a reference light beam that propagates toward an optical path length adjusting means. A multiplexing means multiplexes a reflected light beam, which ...

    6. Imaging apparatus

      An compact imaging apparatus having an OCT function is provided. An image formed of the illuminating-light reflected from a examination area is displayed on a monitor. A signal-light for obtaining an optical tomographic image is guided in a fiber through an insertion portion and projected onto a living tissue measurement area by an illuminating lens. The measurement area is scanned with the signal-light by a Piezo actuator moving the output face of the fiber. An OCT obtaining-portion obtains and displays on a monitor an optical tomographic image by using the interference caused by the signal-light reflected from the measurement area ...

    7. Optical tomograph

      An optical tomograph obtains a tomogram of an object by dividing a low coherence light beam into a signal light beam and a reference light beam, shifting the frequency of at least one of the signal light beam and the reference light beam so that the signal light beam and the reference light beam becomes different from each other in frequency, causing the signal light beam to impinge upon the object, causing the signal light reflected at a predetermined depth of the object to interfere with the reference light beam, and measuring the intensity of the obtained interference light. A ...

    8. Endoscope apparatus for setting a scanning area

      An endoscope apparatus that has an OCT function and can efficiently obtain an optical tomographic image is provided. An image of an area within a body cavity is displayed on a monitor, and an operator uses a pen-type input to specify a point thereon. An aiming-light is projected onto the body cavity and displayed on said monitor as a bright point, and a coated tube of an OCT probe is slid and rotated by a scanning controller so as to align the aiming-light with the point. A scanning-area setting means sets a ring shaped scanning area when the aiming-light and ...

    9. Method and apparatus for obtaining an optical tomographic image of a sentinel lymph node

      An apparatus for obtaining a cellular image to be used in performing a test for pathology of the sentinel lymph node, which is the first lymph node a cancer metastasizes to. The gamma radiation emitted from a near-infrared fluorescent colorant injected in advance into the vicinity of a tumor is detected by use of a gamma-probe. A fiber coupler separates the low-coherence light emitted from the light source of an OCT portion (Optical Coherence Tomography) into a signal-light to be projected onto the sentinel lymph node and a reference-light whose wavelength is slightly shifted. The signal-light is projected onto the ...

    10. Optical coherence tomography apparatus using optical-waveguide structure which reduces pulse width of low-coherence light

      In an optical coherence tomography apparatus: low-coherence light from a light source is split into signal light and reference light; at least one of the frequencies of the signal light and the reference light is shifted so as to produce a predetermined frequency difference between the frequencies; the reference light and a portion of the signal light reflected from the object are optically multiplexed so as to produce interference light; and the optical intensity of the interference light is detected in order to obtain a tomographic image of the object. In the light source, the pulse width of pulsed light ...

    11. Method and apparatus for employing a light source and heterodyne interferometer for obtaining information representing the microstructure of a medium at various depths therein

      A low coherence light beam is split into first and second light beams, and the frequency of the first light beam is shifted. The first and second light beams are then combined with each other at a position at which the optical path difference between the two light beams is larger than the coherence length of the low coherence light beam. The combined light beam is guided to a position in the vicinity of a medium having light scattering properties and split into a third light beam, which travels reversely to the direction of travel of the combined light beam ...
