Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated that the 1.3 µm Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography (SS-OCT) may be used in vivo in a non invasive manner to analyze the characteristics of microablative injuries produced by fractional laser treatments. We have found that the depth of the ablative columns depended approximately linearly on the pulse energy ranging from 180±20 µm for 5 mJ laser pulses to 420±60 µm for 20 mJ pulses.
