Ophthalmic Photothermal Optical Coherence Tomography Apparatus
WARF: P180214US01

Inventors: Melissa Skala, Maryse Lapierre-Landry, Yuankai Tao

The Invention
An optical coherence tomography system for ophthalmic use identifies tissue by selected laser heating of that tissue at reduced power levels decreasing background noise to boost signal-to-noise ratio allowing detection of minute changes in thermal expansion caused by that heating at clinically acceptable levels.
