Paper Abstract

We demonstrated a real-time display of processed OCT images using a linear-in-wavenumber (linear-k) spectrometer and a graphics processing unit (GPU). We used the linear-k spectrometer with optimal combination of a diffractive grating with 1200 lines/mm and a F2 equilateral prism in the 840 nm spectral region, to avoid calculating the re-sampling process. The calculations of the FFT (fast Fourier transform) were accelerated by the low cost GPU with many stream processors, which realized highly parallel processing. A display rate of 27.9 frames per second for processed images (2048 FFT size × 1000 lateral A-scans) was achieved in our OCT system using a line scan CCD camera operated at 27.9 kHz.
