Incorporating different data processing methods, Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has the ability for high-resolution micro-angiography and quantitative flow velocity measurement. However, OCT micro-angiography cannot provide quantitative measurement of flow velocity, and the velocity measurement based on Doppler OCT requires the determination of Doppler angles, which are difficult for whole vascular network. In this study, we report a relative standard deviation OCT (RSD-OCT) for the mapping of the flow velocity in a vascular network without the calculation of Doppler angle. From the theoretical analysis and experimental validation, the RSD-OCT is angle-independent and can quantify the flow velocity conveniently after a calibration.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
