Optical coherence tomography for tissue pathology

Photo of a microscope and two close ups of tissue.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides high resolution (~10 µm) 2D and 3D images from the surface and subsurface tissue microstructures with a maximum depth of 3 mm and a surface area of 1 cm2. OCT has so far entered the clinical routine within ophthalmology and cardiovascular imaging and has great potentials for further translational research and implementation in the clinics. In this project, OCT’s potentials for intra-operative and postoperative (laboratory) pathology diagnostics are investigated. The study of OCT’s potential for thyroid pathology diagnosis is available in the below publication list.
