Abstract
Optical coherence elastography (OCE) asesses the mechanical properties of samples by applying a mechanical stimulation and detecting the resulting sample displacement using optical coherence tomography (OCT). OCE methods which utilise the phase of the OCT signal offer the potential to detect displacements on the sub-nanometre scale. However, the displacement sensitivity achieveable is directly related to the signal-to-noise ratio and phase stability of the underlying OCT system. Furthermore, the estimation of Doppler angle is imperative in accurately measuring the sample displacement. This work evaluates the contributions of each of these parameters for quantitative assessment of mechanical properties using phase-sensitive spectral domain OCT.
