    Abstract:
    Summary form only given. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an emerging biomedical imaging technique that uses low-coherence optical interferometry to obtain micron-scale resolution cross-sectional images of tissue microstructure non-invasively. OCT fills a valuable niche in imaging of tissue structure, providing subsurface imaging with high spatial resolution (on the order of 10 micrometers) and penetration depths of 1-2 mm with no contact or matching medium needed between the probe and the tissue. We have developed an OCT system for gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy using a small-diameter rotary-scanning probe compatible with standard GI endoscopes and capable of imaging in real-time
