Paper Abstract

Development of endoscope-compatible fiber-optic probes and polarization-sensitive detection schemes have each independently expanded the utility of optical coherence tomography. Several application areas have emerged which require polarization-sensitive measurements to be combined with endoscopic imaging techniques, in order to proceed to in vivo studies. Endoscopic-OCT typically requires a section of the sample arm fiber to be scanned during image acquisition, which produces a dynamically changing polarization state of light incident on the sample. Here, we demonstrate the effects of linear-scanning, and rotary-scanning probes in the sample arm of a PS-OCT system, and demonstrate the necessary modifications to be made for successful endoscopic PS-OCT imaging.
