Summary

Advanced forms of OCT are being used in clinical studies of the colon, liver, biliary tract, pancreas, pulmonary tract and skin. These experiments are setting the foundation for additional clinical applications for OCT. Optical frequency-domain imaging (OFDI) was developed to overcome the limitations of optical coherence tomography and achieves a more than 50-fold improvement in image acquisition speed. Our work with OFDI is focused on solving clinical dilemmas surrounding early detection of atherosclerosis and cancer.
