Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging can resolve many of the changes associated with neoplasia and may provide a tool for in vitro, real-time evaluation of a neoplastic changes. OCT can produce sectional tissue microstructure with micron scale resolution. OCT performs imaging by measuring the echo time delay and magnitude of backreflected light from the tissue. The light beam is scanned across the tissue to produce two and three dimensional cross sectional images.
