Quick Reference

(OCT) a class of optical tomographic techniques that allows extremely high-quality micrometre-resolution three-dimensional images to be obtained from within optical scattering media (e.g. biological tissue). OCT is proving valuable in diverse areas, including diagnostic medicine (notably in ophthalmology, where it permits remarkable noninvasive images of the ocular structures).
