Abstract
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive 3 dimensional optical imaging modality that enables high resolution cross sectional imaging in biological tissues and materials. Unlike other 3 D medical imaging modalities, OCT provides high axial and lateral resolution combined with high sensitivity, imaging depth and wide field of view which makes it suitable for wide variety of medical imaging applications1. Apart from analysing the morphological characteristics of the biological organs with micron scale axial and lateral resolution, OCT also provides functional information from the biological sample. Among the various functional extensions of OCT, angiographic OCT that enables visualization of lumens of blood vessels from the acquired OCT B scan images has been of high research interest in the recent past.
