Ablation monitoring with integrated long-range OCT and Er: YAG laser for smart laserosteotomy (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has been proven to be a precise monitoring tool for laserosteotomy which can provide three-dimensional, high resolution and real-time images of a target sample. However, the main technical drawback of utilizing OCT as a monitoring system for laser ablation is the limited imaging range. In this paper, we reported a prototype where we integrated a long-range swept-source OCT system (3.3cm imaging range in the air) with an Er:YAG laser for ablation. We demonstrated that the integrated system can monitor the ablation of bone by Er:YAG with varying pulse energy levels and durations.
