Medical Applications

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is currently used in various medical areas, such as ophthalmology, as it uses a light source to take 3D images for diagnostics.

The device uses light beams, including near-infrared, to create detailed images for imaging biological tissues, such as the retina, blood vessels, skin, and other structures.

Optical fibers are perfect for medical applications such as OCT, offering several competitive advantages:

  • Optical fiber efficiently transmits light to the imaged area, with little loss of intensity.
  • Unlike metal cables, optical fibers are not vulnerable to electromagnetic interference.
  • They are safe for both patients and staff, as they emit no harmful radiation.
  • They provide high-resolution images for high diagnostic accuracy.

Optical fibers are also flexible and compatible with other technologies to offer advanced imaging applications, while remaining safe for patients and healthcare professionals.
