Abstract

It has been shown that transversal scanning (or en-face) optical coherence tomography (TS-OCT) represents an imaging modality capable to record high isotropic resolution images of the human retina in vivo. However, axial eye motion still remains a challenging problem of this technique. In this paper we introduce a novel method to compensate for this eye motion. An auxiliary spectral domain partial coherence interferometer (SD-PCI) was integrated into an existing TS-OCT system and used to measure accurately the position of the cornea. A light source emitting at 1310nm was used in the additional interferometer which enabled a nearly loss free coupling of the two measurement beams via a dichroic mirror. The recorded corneal position was used to drive an additional voice coil translation stage in the reference arm of the TS-OCT system to correct for axial eye motion. Currently, the correction can be performed with an update rate of ~200Hz. The TS-OCT instrument is operated with a line scan rate of 4000 transversal lines per second which enables simultaneous SLO/OCT imaging at a frame rate of 40fps. 3D data of the human retina with isotropic high resolution, that was sufficient to visualize the human cone mosaic in vivo, is presented.

Frame No. 39 of a movie showing 3D data of the retina recorded with the instrument. Left side shows SLO images, the center shows en-face OCT images, right side shows extracted OCT B-scans. The white line shows the position of the corresponding B-scan (in the center image) and position of the corresponding en-face image (on the right hand side image), respectively. SLO images are displayed on a linear scale, OCT images are displayed on a logarithmic scale. Field of view of SLO and en-face OCT images: 0.8°×0.8°. Dimension of OCT B-scan: 0.8°×1mm (To reduce file size, the pixel extension of the original movie was reduced by 70%) [Media 2]
