Title
(EN) PROCESSING OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY SCANS
(FR) TRAITEMENT DE BALAYAGES DE TOMOGRAPHIE PAR COHÉRENCE OPTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of processing optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans through a subject's skin, the method comprising: receiving a plurality of scans through the subject's skin, the scans representing an OCT signal in slices through the user's skin at different times; comparing the scans to determine time-varying regions in the scans; determining a depth-distribution of the time varying regions.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de traiter des balayages de tomographie par cohérence optique (OCT) à travers la peau d'un sujet, ledit procédé consistant à : recevoir une pluralité de balayages à travers la peau du sujet, les balayages représentant un signal OCT en tranches à travers la peau de l'utilisateur à différents moments ; comparer les balayages afin de déterminer les régions variant dans le temps dans les balayages ; déterminer une distribution de profondeur des régions variant dans le temps.
