We describe what are to our knowledge the first in vivo measurements of human retinal structure with optical coherence tomography. These images represent the highest depth resolution in vivo retinal images to date. The tomographic system, image-processing techniques, and examples of high-resolution tomographs and their clinical relevance are discussed. 
In vivo human retinal imaging by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
The method, experimental setup, data processing, and images are discussed and it is shown that this technique might be as powerful as other optical coherence tomography techniques in the ophthalmologic imaging field. Expand

Optical coherence tomography: seeing the unseen
TLDR
The robust quantitative measures that OCT provides of the optic nerve head neuroretinal rim in glaucoma have now superseded the more traditional assessment of retinal nerve fibre layer thickness, and Fortune, in his review of this topic, highlights the evidence supporting their clinical adoption.

A technique called optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been developed for noninvasive cross-sectional imaging in biological systems. OCT uses low-coherence interferometry to produce aExpand
High-resolution reflectometry in biological tissues.
TLDR
Optical low-coherence ref lectometry is applied for the first time to the authors' knowledge to investigate diffusive biological tissues with a single-mode fiber probe, and this noninvasive method allows one to determine optical parameters, such as the index of refraction and the transmission properties, and the tissue thickness.
