Research Abstract
1. High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography:
Optical coherence topography (OCT) is a recently developed image modality based on coherence domain optical technology. The technology is similar to ultrasound. However, it uses near infrared optical waves instead of sound waves and it has the advantage of non-contact and high spatial resolution. We are currently developing a fiber based optical coherence tomography that allows cross-sectional imaging of tissue structure with high spatial resolution (2-10 µm). The objective is to develop noninvasive imaging technology that can perform “optical biobsy� for cancer diagnosis.
