Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an evolving noninvasive imaging modality and has been used to image the human larynx during surgical endoscopy. The design of a long GRIN lens based probe capable of capturing images of the human larynx by use of a swept-source OCT during a typical office-based laryngoscopy examination is presented. An optical-ballast-based 4F optical relay system is proposed to realize variable working distance with a constant optical delay. In vivo OCT imaging of the human larynx is demonstrated with 40 fame/second. Office-based OCT is a promising imaging modality to study the larynx.
