Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is one of the most rapidly emerging and innovative optical imaging modalities of the last decades enabling in vivo cross-sectional tomographic visualization of internal microstructure in biological systems. Recent developments in ultrabroad bandwidth laser as well as OCT technology enable three-dimensional ultrahigh resolution OCT with unprecedented axial resolution, approaching resolution levels of conventional histopathology, enabling optical biopsy of biological tissue.
