Paper Abstract

Optical coherence tomography is nowadays an established imaging technique in Ophthalmology, with a key role on early detection of macular diseases, benefiting from the tremendous evolution in principles and technological developments of the last 20 years. In this paper the most important physical principles behind time-domain, spectral-domain and Fourier-domain OCT will be presented, along with examples of applications in different imaging fields, emphasizing the limitations of current systems, their performance parameters, as well as the challenges for the future within this field of development.
