The pace of technological advancement of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) over the last several years has been extremely rapid. The field has progressed from one-dimensional low-coherence ranging to full three-dimensional imaging with individual two-dimensional images aquired at near video rate in a span of less than eight years. Imaging applications have included polymers and advanced composites, Ophthalmology, Developmental Biology, Gastroenterology, Urology, Cardiology, Neurology, and Gynecology. These preliminary studies indicate the great potential for OCT to make a significant impact, especially in clinical medicine.
