Innovative Swept Source for next generation OCT devices

Project description

Seeing the retina more clearly could help reduce vision impairment

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive technology that uses light waves to obtain high-resolution cross-sectional images of tissue structure. Kind of an optical biopsy without incisions or tissue removal, it has emerged as an important technique in biomedical and clinical applications that include diagnoses of retinal disease. It is currently limited in its ability to make full 3D images of the eye as it cannot account for small movements during imaging. ISSO scientists have developed a novel laser source for OCT to overcome this issue at a competitive price. With EU support, they are bringing the technology to market. It could provide a step-change in early diagnosis of eye disease and in biomedical imaging more generally.
