    1. Methods to assess sensitivity of optical coherence tomography systems

      Methods to assess sensitivity of optical coherence tomography systems
      Measuring the sensitivity of an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system determines the minimum sample reflectivity it can detect and provides a figure of merit for system optimization and comparison. The published literature lacks a detailed description of OCT sensitivity measurement procedures. Here we describe a commonly-used measurement method and introduce two new phantom-based methods, which also offer a means to directly visualize low reflectivity conditions relevant to biological tissue. We ...

    2. Multi-system comparison of optical coherence tomography performance with point spread function phantoms

      Multi-system comparison of optical coherence tomography performance with point spread function phantoms
      Point spread function (PSF) phantoms based on unstructured distributions of sub-resolution particles in a transparent matrix have proven effective for evaluating resolution and its spatial variation in optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems. Measurements based on PSF phantoms have the potential to become a standard test method for consistent, objective and quantitative inter-comparison of OCT system performance. Towards this end, we have evaluated three PSF phantoms and investigated their ability to ...

      Feature Of The Week 1/8/12: Ultrafast Processing and Rendering of OCT Data using a GPU
      Processing of the large volumetric data is the bottleneck of the current FD-OCT systems. Solving this issue enables real time visualisation. Various groups have applied utilising the full power of GPU for OCT data processing allows to realise the full potential of OCT. GPU based data processing to OCT. Here we present a GPU-CPU based processing methodology as well evaluates the performance of various GPUs.In standard processing, interference data ...
