OCT with wide area detection has proven to be a good instrument to obtain tomographic images of epithelial structures. A depth of 2 mm was reached with a CCD-camera setup. Due to the lack of an effective image preprocessing the data acquisition time was too long to carry out measurements in vivo. A new detector head using line detector arrays was developed with the advantage of interference detection by complementary detectors and data reduction by analog computing.
