    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. Fabrication of high quality optical coherence tomography (OCT) calibration artefacts using femtosecond inscription

      Fabrication of high quality optical coherence tomography (OCT) calibration artefacts using femtosecond inscription
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive three-dimensional imaging system that is capable of producing high resolution in-vivo images. OCT is approved for use in clinical trials in Japan, USA and Europe. For OCT to be used effectively in a clinical diagnosis, a method of standardisation is required to assess the performance across different systems. This standardisation can be implemented using highly accurate and reproducible artefacts for calibration at both ...

    3. Feature Of The Week 1/8/12: Ultrafast Processing and Rendering of OCT Data using a GPU

      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 ...

    4. Report on Optical Tissue Phantoms from National Physical Laboratory in UK

      Report on Optical Tissue Phantoms from National Physical Laboratory in UK
      The key figures of merit for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) systems are sensitivity and resolution. These parameters can be used to determine the suitability of instruments for purpose and to gauge the practical improvements to instruments afforded by modifications to the design. Therefore, NPL is developing reproducible and stable phantoms for depth resolved sensitivity and three-dimensional resolution or point-spread-function (PSF
