Paper Abstract

Recent developments in adaptive optics - optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) allow for ultra-high isotropic resolution imaging of the in-vivo retina, offering unprecedented insight into its volumetric microscopic and cellular structures. In addition to this promising achievement, the clinical impact and application of this technology still needs to be explored. This includes assessment of limitations and challenges for existing as well as future AO-OCT systems, especially in the context of potential transfer of this technology from an optical bench to a portable imaging system. To address these issues we will describe our current AO-UHR-OCT focusing on its sub-components, as well as application for clinical imaging. Additionally, we describe some directions for future development of our AO-OCT instrument that would improve its clinical utility including: new compact AO-OCT design, new improved AO sub-system (extreme AO), and new generations of Fourier-domain-OCT.
