Paper Abstract

A review is presented of the developments in Kent in the field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) based instrumentation. Original versatile imaging systems have been devised which allow operation in different regimes under software control. Using such systems, B-scan and C-scan images are demonstrated from retina, anterior chamber, skin and teeth. The systems developed in Kent employ the flying spot concept, i.e. they use en-face scanning of the beam across the target. This has opened the possibility of providing simultaneous en-face OCT and confocal images (C-scans). Application of a standalone OCT/confocal system for investigating the retina in eyes with pathology, the anterior chamber, skin and teeth is demonstrated.
