Paper Abstract

Recent extensions to conventional OCT imaging include polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) and optical Doppler tomography (ODT), enabling further information to be acquired in addition to tissue structure. We demonstrate here that structure, birefringence and blood flow measurements may be carried out simultaneously, using both techniques of polarization-sensitive OT and phase- resolved ODT. Images of in vivo human skin acquired with a high-speed fiber-based system are presented. The concurrent processing of data is performed with no penalty to signal- to-noise ratio, and without degradation of either the individual structure, birefringence or flow images.
