      Feature Of The Week 05/26/2019: In vivo volumetric imaging by crosstalk-free full-field OCT

      Cellular resolution imaging of biological structures has always been a challenge due to strong scattering that limits the achievable transverse resolution or imaging penetration depth. Recently, a major advancement toward high-resolution and volumetric imaging was achieved by implementing a parallel detection (i.e., full field) into Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography. The drawback of using parallel detection is that scattered light can travel laterally and get mapped improperly at a camera creating optical crosstalk, which severely impairs the interpretation of subcellular images and limits its use in medical diagnostics. In this work, we demonstrate for what we believe is the first ...
