Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging technique that is used to deliver high-resolution images in two or three dimensions. It relies on the wave-like properties of light to produce a low- coherence interference spectrum. In recent decades, this approach has proved to be very beneficial in industry and in medicine. In 1992, a startup company called Advanced Ophthalmic Devices, which grew out of a collaboration at MIT, first used an OCT system as a medical imaging technique for ophthalmology. Since that time, the technology has expanded to enable better understanding and detection of ophthalmic conditions and diseases, including glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, pigment cell detachment, and retinal detachment…READ MORE
