The development of optical coherence tomography as a medical device

BRETT BOUMA, HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL AND MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL

Optical coherence tomography, an imaging modality based on interferometric detection of backscattered infrared light, was initially demonstrated in 1991. Twenty five years later, it is the established gold-standard for retinal disease diagnosis and ophthalmic intervention guidance. Endoscopic and catheter-based OCT instruments have also been commercialized and disseminated, enabling the clinical investigation of their use to improve diagnostic screening or surveillance. The technical advances as well as the hurdles that underpin the long development timeline of OCT will be discussed and the current clinical status will be reviewed.
