Translational shear-wave optical coherence elastography

Conference Dates

June 2-6, 2019


The biomechanical properties of tissues can be dramatically altered by various diseases, such as keratoconus for the cornea of the eye and systemic sclerosis for the skin. Therefore, the ability to measure tissue biomechanical properties could provide critical information for assessing its health and detecting disease etiology as well as monitoring disease progression. Here, we present pilot results in development of noncontact dynamic optical coherence elastography (OCE) technique to evaluate the biomechanical properties of the cornea and skin of healthy subjects and those affected by diseases.
