Editorial Reviews


From the reviews: "This is a comprehensive review of the current status of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology and its applications in the medical field. … The authors are the leading experts in this field and as such are able to use a unique approach for targeting physicists, scientists, engineers, and researchers in medical specialties, along with practitioners. The book is also suitable for graduate students and residents interested in pursuing an education in medical specialties." (Paul Gueye, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2009)

From the Back Cover

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the optical analog of ultrasound imaging and is emerging as a powerful imaging technique that enables non-invasive, in vivo, high resolution, cross-sectional imaging in biological tissue. A new generation OCT technology has now been developed, representing a quantum leap in resolution and speed, achieving in vivo optical biopsy, i.e. the visualization of tissue architectural morphology in situ and in real time. Functional extensions of OCT technology enable non-invasive, depth resolved functional assessment and imaging of tissue. These new techniques should not only improve image contrast, but should also enable the differentiation of pathologies via metabolic properties or functional state. The book introduces OCT technology and applications not only from an optical and technological viewpoint, but also from biomedical and clinical perspectives. The chapters are written by leading international research groups, in a style comprehensible to a broad audience. It will be of interest not only to physicists, scientists and engineers, but also to biomedical and clinical researchers from different medical specialties.

Format: Hardcover
If anyone is interested in building an OCT system for research, this is the book. Written by the biggest experts in the field, this book covers every aspect of this revolutionary technology. They also talk about the various areas in which this technology has been used, thus could also be useful for clinicians who are looking for the capabilities of OCT. In all an excellent book for everyone.
