Abstract

We present a simple method applicable to common path Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT) in which the tissue surface is used as the reference arm. A key advantage of this technique in FDOCT is that tissue surface appears at the top of the image thus avoiding a mirror image artefact. Also, this simplifies system alignment and dispersion matching. Although the inherent tissue surface reflectivity is limited, we propose using aluminum hydroxide powder as a potential tissue surface diffuser to allow wider application of this methodology.
