  • While optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides a resolution down to 1 micrometer it has difficulties to visualize cellular structures due to a lack of scattering contrast. By evaluating signal fluctuations, a significant contrast enhancement was demonstrated using time-domain full-field OCT (FF-OCT), which makes cellular and subcellular structures visible. The putative cause of the dynamic OCT signal is ATP-dependent motion of cellular structures in a sub-micrometer range, which provides… CONTINUE READING
