OCT Technique - Optical Coherence Tomography


OCT - Optical Coherence Tomography is a light-constructing catheter which secures picture (photograph) inside the heart vein. OCT is a catheter-based Intravascular Imaging Technology that gives micron-scale determination. It can be described as a laser light ultrasound imaging technology, measuring the power of backscattered infrared light as opposed to sound waves, and then makes an interpretation of these optical echoes into a high-determination, two-dimensional tomographic picture.

OCT has the most astounding imaging determination of any currently accessible innovation. Cross-sectional resolutions of catheter-based OCT frameworks are in the scope of 10-20 µm. Learn more about OCT Technique and its benefits.
