Optical Coherence Tomography is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope. It is effectively â€˜optical ultrasoundâ€™, imaging reflections from within tissue to provide cross-sectional images.
There are many industrial, medical, and other applications where high resolution (generally less than 10 micrometer) images of, and measurements of distances, thicknesses, and optical properties of, a biological or other sample are required.
â€œMethod And Apparatus For Optical Imaging With Means For Controlling The Longitudinal Range Of The Sampleâ€ Issued US Patent 5,321,501, June 14, 1994. Filed 4/29/92. – A method and apparatus for performing optical imaging on a sample wherein longitudinal scanning or positioning in the sample is provided by either varying relative optical path lengths for an optical path leading to the sample and to a reference reflector, or by varying an optical characteristic of the output from an optical source applied to the apparatus. Transverse scanning in one or two dimensions is provided on the sample by providing controlled relative movement between the sample and a probe module in such direction and/or by steering optical radiation in the probe module to a selected transverse position. The probe module may be an external module or may be an endoscope or angioscope utilized for scanning internal channels. Multiple optical paths may be provided for parallel scanning and focus may be enhanced by varying the focal point in the sample in synchronism with longitudinal scanning of the sample.

This technology provides the ability to amplify X-rays that have been converted to visible light. The FluoroScan System is a low intensity, real time X-ray imaging device which provides high resolution images at radiation levels and at a cost well below those of conventional X-ray and fluoroscopic equipment. The FluoroScan System technology is based on a micro channel plate image intensifier commonly known as a night vision intensifier.
