Paper Abstract

In this work we have suggested a possibility of biotissue scattering parameters reconstruction from the images obtained by optical coherence tomography (OCT) technique. The existing theoretical model of OCT signal from a turbid medium is suggested for estimation of biotissue optical properties. On the basis of this model, a theoretical dependence of OCT signal versus imaging depth is constructed for different biotissue structures. The comparison of experimental and theoretical dependence of the OCT signal versus probing depth was performed to evaluate optical parameters of the tissue. An example of the assessment of biotissue backscattering coeffiecnt from its experimental tomogram is proposed.
