Paper Abstract

There are several applications of quantitative micro-displacement measurement of a biological specimen, including characterization of mechanical property and monitoring a laser-induced photothermal expansion. In this study, we proposed a quantitative micro-displacement measurement method using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Specifically, the axial displacement is measured by Doppler OCT and magnitude of displacement is measured by correlation coefficient. By using this method, we measured the local and microdisplacement of the chicken muscles during laser irradiation. The proposed method successfully visualizes thermal changes of chicken muscle due to the laser irradiation. The measured displacement and deformation are useful information for the further understanding of the thermal changes.
