We study noise reduction using modified compressive sensing optical coherence tomography. We show that averaged modified compressed sensing (CS) reconstruction achieves better image quality in terms of signal-to-noise ratio, local contrast, and contrast-to-noise ratio, compared to the classical averaging method while reducing the total amount of data required to reconstruct the images. The same is also true when compared with standard CS-based averaging method with the same amount of undersampled data.
