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.

Patent number 5,692,511, issued on December 2, 1987
IPSCIO Record ID: 27642
IPSCIO Record ID: 6147
A method and apparatus are provided for the determination of levels of carotenoids and similar chemical compounds in biological tissue such as living skin (34). The method and apparatus provide a noninvasive, rapid, accurate, and safe determination of carotenoid levels which in turn can provide diagnostic information regarding cancer risk, or can be a marker for conditions where carotenoids or other antioxidant compounds may provide diagnostic information. The method and apparatus utilize the technique of resonance Raman spectroscopy to measure the levels of carotenoids and similar substances in tissue. In this technique, laser light is directed upon the area of tissue which is of interest. A small fraction of the scattered light is scattered inelastically, producing the carotenoid Raman signal which is at a different frequency than the incident laser light, and the Raman signal is collected, filtered, and measured. The resulting Raman signal can be analyzed such that the background fluorescence signal is subtracted and the results displayed and compared with known calibration standards.
