    Abstract

    Ultrahigh resolution, functional optical coherence tomography (OCT) was studied using state-of-the-art femtosecond laser technology. OCT is based on a classic optical measurement method known as low-coherence interferometry or white light interferometry. OCT provides cross sectional images from below the tissue surface in analogy to histopathology. It was observed that spectroscopic OCT allows the extraction of spatially resolved functional or biochemical properties.
