Abstract
Optical coherence tomography, optical coherence microscopy, reflectance confocal microscopy, and darkfield microscopy all derive contrast from the intensity of endogenous tissue scatter. We have imaged excised mouse colon tissue with these complimentary technologies to make conclusions about structural origins of scatter in the mouse colonic mucosa observed with endoscopic OCT. We find hyperintense scattering both from the cytoplasm of epithelial cells and from the boundary between epithelia and the lamina propria. We find almost no scatter from the portion of epithelial cells containing the nucleus. These observations substantiate explanations for the appearance of colonic crypts and the luminal surface.
