Abstract
This work demonstrates the feasibility of OCT for identifying early osteoarthritic pathology. In addition to structural abnormalities, changes in collagen fiber organization, an indicator of very early osteoarthritis, were assessed with a polarization sensitive OCT system. A portable, real time, modular OCT system, suitable for both laboratory and clinical settings, has been developed. Preliminary in vivo imaging results obtained during partial knee replacement surgery are discussed.
