Analytical models of optical coherence tomography (OCT) of strongly turbid media of the type of biological tissues are developed on the basis of the theory of wave scattering in random inhomogeneous media. Similarity relations for signals of coherent and pulsed sounding are established, and general expressions for random realizations and statistical characteristics of tomograms are obtained. It is shown that after the appropriate modification the theory of image transfer in turbid media can be… CONTINUE READING
