Paper Abstract

During the last years Optical Coherence Tomography could proof its value as a precise and non-invasive tool for providing morphologic information about biological tissue. Nevertheless there is also a demand for obtaining functional tissue parameters like for instance oxygen saturation of blood. Such information can be accessed by spectroscopic tissue analysis. It is shown how Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (FDOCT) can serve as a tool for the assessment of spectroscopic object properties. In order to show the feasibility of this method, absorption measurements of a RG830 filter glass plate and of a dye in a glass cuvette are presented.
