Real-Time Optical Coherence Tomography - iOCT


Stanford Reference:

10-463


Abstract


Dr. Audrey Ellerbee has developed a patented real-time optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. This technology uses a novel detector design and algorithm to increase image acquisition speed >10-fold compared to existing methods. Because this approach is independent of wavelength sweep, it is scalable and can be combined with either traditional or high-speed light sources. The technology enables the first possible real-time 3-D image acquisition, with clinical diagnostic and research applications.

Applications


  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) - with end-user applications that rely on high speed, such as:
    • medical imaging (ophthalmology, cardiology, endoscopy, intravascular)
    • biological imaging (developmental biology, cellular dynamics)

Advantages


  • Real-time imaging - >10-fold increased imaging speed over existing methods enables real-time 3D image acquisition (>30Hz for a 3D volume)
  • Scalable - relies on speed and bandwidth of the detector (not the light source) and is therefore immediately scalable
  • Complementary to technologies that rely on high speed light sweep
