Brain neuronal imaging with SD-OCM

The use of a broadband light source in the 1700 nm band enables high-resolution imaging of deep, highly scattered biological tissue. In particular, SD-OCM (spectral domain - optical coherence microscopy) enables non-invasive deep brain neuronal imaging without craniotomy, and has been applied to in-vivo observation of Alzheimer's lesions.
