Abstract

Two-dimensional deconvolution methods are proposed to deblur optical coherence tomography images. One employs a two-dimensional deconvolution with a matrix given by the product of the longitudinal and transversal point-spread functions as its kernel, which can be taken as the general point-spread function of an optical coherence tomography system. The other uses two one-dimensional deconvolutions with the longitudinal and transversal point-spread functions successively. It is shown that the two deconvolution methods can deblur the experimentally obtained optical coherence tomography images effectively.
