Abstract [en]

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive high-resolutionmethod for measuring the reectance of scattering media in 1/2/3D, The method has been used in a number of dierent medical elds andfor measurement of tissue optical properties.The software developed in this thesis is able to display features hidden ina shadowed volume by adding multiple OCT measurements taken at obliqueangles, a technique here called Multiple-Angle Oblique Optical CoherenceTomography (MAO-OCT).Three dierent objects with were measured at 5 to 9 angles. The measurementswere automatically and manually aligned in the software. They werealso tested with 6 dierent high pass intensity lters (HPIF) and reduced insize using 4 dierent methods to speed up calculations.The software's automatic alignment was tested with one tilted computergenerated test at 9 angles and with 5 dierent shadow strengths.With MAO-OCT it is possible to remove some eects of shadows in OCT,though it comes with a cost of reduced sharpness. The errors depend muchon the dierences in index of refraction in the sample.The software managed to automatically align 90% of the articial measurements,and 60% of the OCT measurements. The shadow strength andthe resize method had no noticeable eect on the automatic alignment of themeasurements.
