In all optical systems, including OCT systems, interrelationships exist among optical parameters. Significant performance parameters that are coupled in OCT systems include: axial resolution & imaging depth, lateral resolution & field of view, and A-Scan rate & field of view:
•Improving axial resolution decreases the maximum possible imaging depth.
•Improving lateral resolution contracts the field of view.
•A faster A-Scan rate results in reduced sensitivity
•A shorter wavelength improves lateral resolution but increases scattering from small features in tissue and other media
Immediately below is information about how our various preconfigured OCT systems compare when evaluated in terms of a single key parameter. Click the preconfigured OCT system name on the left of each bar to navigate to the related OCT series page for more details. Item numbers beginning with CAL, GAN, TEL, and VEG are members of the Callisto, Ganymede, Telesto, and Vega series OCT systems, respectively. There is also a Telesto series PS-OCT system, which is capable of measuring polarization information at the same speed as its comparable standard Telesto systems. A Selection Guide comparing the key specifications of all of our OCT base units is provided at the bottom of the page.
Bayspec’s DeepView™ Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) systems utilize spectral-domain technology (SD-OCT) to offer significant improvements over time-domain approaches: twice the resolution and ~100x image acquisition speed. The promise of SD-OCT has had to wait for the maturity of reliable, affordable components and sub-systems… until now.
