Abstract

Quantitative three-dimensional blood flow imaging is a valuable technique to investigate the physiology of the brain. Two-photon microscopy (2PM) allows quantification of the local blood flow velocity with micrometric resolution by performing repeated line scans, but prohibitively long measurement times would be required to apply this technique to full three-dimensional volumes. By multiplexing the image acquisition over depth, Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FDOCT) enables quantification of blood flow velocities with a high volume acquisition rate, albeit at a relatively low spatial resolution. Extended-focus optical coherence microscopy (xfOCM) increases the lateral resolution without sacrificing depth of field and therefore combines the high volume acquisition rate of FDOCT with a resolution comparable to 2PM. Here, we demonstrate high-resolution quantitative imaging of the blood flow velocity vector’s magnitude in the adult murine brain with xfOCM.
