OCT: Important technology, vital research tool

OCT has become an established biomedical imaging technology along with MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Microscopy.
It’s important to provide students with experience in this vital technology and its properties.
Students across a spectrum of science and engineering fields can benefit from learning about OCT.
Concepts to be learned include:

  • Fundamental physics – using optical interferometry to observe wave effects
    Physiology – OCT can examine a wide range of biological tissues
    Image and signal processing – converting interferometry data to OCT images illustrates several common signal
    processing methods
    Material science – OCT can be used to monitor material integrity in response to dynamic loading
    Lumedica’s OQ Labscope brings medical grade OCT imaging to a price point and form factor compatible with the
    undergraduate and graduate laboratory environment and budget.
