Abstract
A phase-resolved polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) system was used to determine the burn depth of in vivo tissue non-invasively. The phase retardation information was obtained by processing the analytical interference fringe signals from two perpendicular polarization-detection channels. From the birefringence images for the four reference polarization states, the birefringence reduction in the rat skin due to thermal damage can be measured. The determined burn depth showed good agreement with histological result.
