Paper Abstract

Diagnostic value of standard OCT for recognizing cervical neoplasia has been evaluated: sensitivity is 82%, specificity is 78%, and diagnostics accuracy is 81%. To increase it several approaches have been suggested: application of hyperosmotic agents, cross-polarization tomography, complementary use of fluorescence spectroscopy and OCT, additional computer processing of the OCT-images and optical coherence microscipy.
