Journal Article: Office-Based Polarization Sensitive OCT for Anterior Eye

Our colleague Yiheng Lim recently reported a clinical prototype of polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) specially designed for the investigation of anterior eye segments. This system based on our developed high-speed Jones matrix OCT methodology, and integrated with a scanning head specially designed for anterior eye imaging. This clinical prototype provides semi-automatic alignment function and possesses a compact, office-compatible size. Several clinical cases were investigated to prove the clinical utility.

The details are reported in Biomedical Optics Express.
