Abstract

We report on the development of a unique sideview handheld hybrid Raman spectroscopy (RS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) technique for real-time in vivo tissue measurements. A sideview handheld RS-OCT optical probe is designed to coalign the optical paths of RS and OCT sampling arms, whereby a compact long-pass dichroic mirror (LPDM) is utilized to transmit the OCT signal through a gradient index rod lens and a reflection mirror, whereas the LPDM deflects the tissue Raman signal by 90°, leading to coaligned RS/OCT optical samplings on the tissue. Further study shows that the hybrid RS and OCT technique developed is capable of simultaneously acquiring both morphological and biochemical information about the oral tissue in vivo, facilitating real-time, in vivo tissue diagnoses and characterizations in the oral cavity.
