OCT ophthalmoscope / ultrasound biometer / table
Type of instrument:
OCT ophthalmoscope, ultrasound biometer
OCT utilizes low coherence of broadband light to suppress background noise.
It obtains resolution which is 1~2 magnitudes higher than conventional
ultrasound imaging (ym), and very high signal-to-noise ratio (over 100 dB).
OCT employs near-inferred light source. It does no harm to human body.
Both transparent and nontransparent tissue can be imaged.
It is non-contacting and non-invasive. In vivo test under natural condition
can be done and test result is unrelated to thermal and mechanical
properties of the tested object.
Systems for OCT are usually compact and easy-to-operate , which makes this
technique especially promising for clinical application.
