Abstract

In this Letter, we utilize one-dimensional wavelet analysis to improve the quality of morphology images and velocity profiles of optical coherence tomography simultaneously, by performing analysis on the complex time-frequency plane of raw interferograms, prior to image construction. The results indicate a robust signal improvement that also preserves accuracy for both morphology and velocity information and has been demonstrated on a variety of samples with diverse flow speeds and morphologies.
