Paper Abstract

The feasibility of Optical Coherence Tomography to determine the oxygenation of whole blood was investigated on porcine blood samples. Our experimental data show a sensitivity in the OCT spectral content to changes in oxygenation that qualitatively correspond to expectations based on the absorption spectra of oxidized and reduced hemoglobin, using a broadband source operating at the isobestic wavelength of 800 nm.
