Parallel optical coherence tomography is demonstrated using a 12-bit scientific-grade charge-coupled device array. A superluminescent diode in combination with a free-space Michelson interferometer was employed to achieve 10-?m axial resolution and 1.1-?m transverse resolution on a 902*575 ?m2 field of view. We imaged a test mirror and bovine retinal tissue using a four-step phase shift method.
