Paper Abstract

Spectral and Time domain OCT (STdOCT) is a data analysis scheme proposed for sensitive Doppler imaging. In this work we show that it has an additional feature: when compared to those created using complex or amplitude averaging, tomograms prepared using STdOCT have the highest contrast to noise ratio and preserve high signal to noise ratio and image dynamic range. Images of uniformly scattering phantom as well as images of human retina in vivo prepared with three different techniques are shown.
