In general, Optical Coherence Tomography, or â€˜OCTâ€™, 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.

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.

The Licensor has been issued its first patent, which provides coverage for the unique way of using ultrasound for dental applications. An additional 31 provisional patents have been secured for other aspects of the system and additional software.
ClearView LAB is used to scan conventional impressions, thereby eliminating all stone models, transportation costs, and several days of waiting for patients. The inherent errors in model fabrication will also be eliminated. Since the scans produced by ClearView LAB are highly accurate in terms of capturing detail, crowns, veneers, bridges, braces and retainers may be fabricated from these scans. As mentioned, a great deal of time â€“ more than a week â€“ will be saved by avoiding the familiar process involving poured models, bases, trimming, and shipping.
