Optical coherence tomography is a non-contact and highspeed imaging modality that permits the in vivo investigation of highly scattering biological tissues on the micron scale. Three dimensional representations of vessel and nerve morphology can be used to help direct the surgeon intraoperatively. The high resolution technology has the potential for intraoperative surgical guidance in microsurgical procedures and promises to improve visualization within the surgical field.
