    Abstract:
    Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOLT) allows simultaneous micrometer-scale resolution cross-sectional imaging of tissue structure and blood flow. We demonstrate a fiber-optic polarization-diversity-based differential phase contrast DOCT system as a method to perform self-referenced velocimetry in highly scattering media. Using this strategy, we reduced common-mode interferometer noise to <1 Hz and improved Doppler estimates in a scattering flow phantom by a factor of 5
