Journal Article: High-Sensitive Doppler Imaging of Choroid by Dual-Beam Doppler OCT

Our colleague Franck Jaillon recently reported his new Doppler optical coherence tomography (OCT) system which enables high-penetration and dual-velocity imaging of choroidal vasculature. This methodology employed   newly developed dual-beam OCT scanning head to provide high-sensitive Doppler imaging. Furthermore, this scanning head can provide multiple velocity range for Doppler detection. Since this system is using 1-um light as a probe, the details of in vivo choroidal vasculature was successfully visualized.

The details are published in Biomedical Optics Express.
