Brain Imaging With Serial Optical Coherence Scanning

Abstract: 

Brain Imaging With Serial Optical Coherence Scanning

These researchers are developing an optical imaging technique called serial optical coherence scanning (SOCS) that will be used for studying brain anatomy. The research will enable a comprehensive three-dimensional reconstruction of the brain and cerebellum, and support quantitative assessments on white matter content and organization.
