Paper Abstract

We propose two independent OCT data processing methods allowing visualization and analysis of the blood flow. These methods utilize variations in the OCT intensity images caused by flowing blood. The first method calculates standard deviation of intensity to generate retinal OCT angiograms. We present algorithm of this method and results of application for visualization of the microvasculature in the macular area of the human eye in vivo. The second method calculates cross power spectra of the volumetric intensity images to assess blood flow velocity in three dimensions. Validation of this method for OCT imaging was performed in a flow phantom.
