This paper discusses the features of signal formation in optical-coherence-tomography systems and recursion algorithms for dynamic processing of low-coherence interferometric signals. Estimates are given of the accuracy and speed of algorithms for extended Kalman filtering and nonlinear Markov filtering as applied to signal analysis in wide-field optical coherence tomography.
