Paper Abstract

We propose a optical coherence tomographic (OCT) system for imaging functional organization of brain. To enhance the reflectivity of OCT signal, simulation studies have been done with iron particles as the tracer elements. It has been found that by proper choice of the size of the particles, the OCT signal can be greatly enhanced.
