In this paper the benefits in terms of operation time that Master/Slave (MS) implementation of optical coherence tomography can bring in comparison to Gabor fused (GF) employing conventional fast Fourier transform based OCT are presented. The Gabor Fusion/Master Slave Optical Coherence Tomography architecture proposed here does not need any data stitching. Instead, a subset of en-face images is produced for each focus position inside the sample to be imaged, using a reduced number of theoretically inferred Master masks. These en-face images are then assembled into a final volume. When the channelled spectra are digitized into 1024 sampling points, and more than 4 focus positions are required to produce the final volume, the Master Slave implementation of the instrument is faster than the conventional fast Fourier transform based procedure.
