Paper Abstract

At BIOS08, the authors presented a novel multi-beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system that overcomes the problem of limited lateral resolution inherent in single-beam Fourier Domain OCT. We now present image processing algorithms for blending the images from each OCT beam, producing a seamless composite image, and show how the use of multiple beams can produce additional benefits, including speckle noise reduction, leading to improved clinical detail in the results.
