Abstract

We demonstrate the utility of a novel scanning method for optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Although raster scanning is commonly used for OCTA imaging, a bidirectional approach would lessen the distortion caused by galvanometer-based scanners as sources continue to increase sweep rates. As shown, a unidirectional raster scan approach has a lower effective scanning time than bidirectional approaches; however, a strictly bidirectional approach causes contrast variation along the B-scan direction due to the non-uniform time interval between B-scans. Therefore, a stepped bidirectional approach is introduced and successfully applied to retinal imaging in normal controls and in a pathological subject with diabetic retinopathy.
