introduction of oct
Introduction of OCT
  • James G. Fujimoto, 1991
  • What is OCT:

diagnostic medical imaging techonology

  • Why OCT: better diagnose and treat disease
  • Main application areas:

heart disease and cancer

what is oct optical coherence tomography
What is OCT(Optical Coherence Tomography)?
  • OCT use low-coherence interferometry to produce a two or three dimensional image of optical scattering from internal tissue microstructures.
  • Michelson interferometer is used to perform low-coherence interferometry
  • OCT measures intensity of reflected infrared light.

advantage of oct
Advantage of OCT
  • Broad dynamic range,
  • High resolution
  • Rapid data acquisition rate,
  • Small inexpensive catheter/endoscope design
  • Compact portable structure

(fiber optically based, making possible the development of small catheters and endoscopes)

  • The frame rate for OCT systems are four to eight frames per second.(assume an image size of 256 by 512 pixels.)
nowadays and future equipment









Nowadays and future equipment
  • Low-coherence Superluminescent diode:800 –1300 nm center waveength and severl milliwatts power.

Applied in guiding microsurgical procedure

A Reduce High False-Negative Rates

  • Penetration: 2-3mm Ideal: 4mm
  • Resolution :

catheter/endoscope based image: 10μm, noncatheter: 4 μm,

1. femtosecond laser is expensive (1 μm)

2. transverse resolution needs to be similar to axial resolution, below 10 μm need short confocal parameter which results in the focus falling off rapidly.

  • Acquisition rate: <10franes/second
  • Lack of large-scale clinical trials
future works
Future works
  • Peneration and Resolution:

1. Need to develop with similar median wavelength, power, and bandwidth to those of the mode locked laser.

2. Need more complex catheter/ endoscope designs to alleviate the focus falling off rapidly.

  • Acquisition rates: video rate is anticipated with future embodiments.
underway work
Underway work
  • Combine OCT with Doppler velocimetry and measurement of birefringence properties.
  • The potential of giving OCT the ability to make both structural and dynamic assessments.
  • Imalux Corporation: leader
  • total potential of OCT marketing is $2.5 billion in annual revenue
  • OCT will result in a multi-application industry similar to the path taken by ultrasound.
  • markets of gastroenterology, urology, and gynecology represent revenue potential of $781 million.
