Paper Abstract

A novel 3-D image construction method with maximum intensity projection (MIP) of B-mode OCT images is proposed for in vivo dynamic analysis of mental sweating on human fingertips. Time-sequential MIP-OCT images with the frame spacing as short as 1.4 sec provide us quantitative analysis of the sweating dynamics to evaluate of activity of sympathetic nerve. Dynamic changes in the microstructure of eccrin sweat glands can be clearly observed in the 3-D images constructed by volume rendering.
