Optical Coherence Tomography is high resolution noninvasive imaging technology which is used to obtain cross sectional images of retina and optic nerve fibers.
2016 – 2025
Optical Coherence Tomography is high resolution noninvasive imaging technology which is
used to obtain cross sectional images of retina and optic nerve fibers. It uses light waves to
produce high resolution 2D images of retina and related parts. Optical coherence tomography has
evolved as one of the most important technology used in ophthalmic practices.

There are two main methods of OCT-time domain (TD) and spectral domain (SD). Time domain
optical coherence tomography uses broadband optical source and a photo detector. The principle
of operation is based on partial coherence where photo detector senses variation in the
interference to produce cross sectional images. Recent advancements in OCT technology have
enabled imaging of nontransparent tissues by use of longer wavelength to reduce scattering of
light across eye surface.
One of the major applications of the technology is to use in conventional excisional biopsy by
providing high depth images of pathology that cannot be obtained by use of other imaging
techniques. Another important application of OCT is use in surgical interventions by enabling to
see beneath the surface of tissues for surgical procedures of sensitive structures such as eye
vessels and nerves. Although OCT technology is primarily used in ophthalmology, however
owing to its unique property, OCT has found application in other fields such as dermatology and

According to World Health Organization in 2010, around 524 million people were aged 65 and
above and this number is expected to triple and reach 1.5 billion by 2050. Between 2010 and
2050, the aging population in developing countries is expected to increase with more than 250
percent as compared to 71 percent increase in developed countries. Such high aging population
base will increase demand for diagnostic technologies including optical coherence tomography.
Furthermore, technological benefits offered by OCT such as ability to analyze in depth structure
of eyes and related parts and extensive application of OCT in tissue imaging will further drive
the growth of the market. However unfavorable reimbursement scenario and absence of
sufficient clinical data is expected to hamper growth of the market.
