Comparison of depth, area, and images achieved with a/LCI and confocal microscopy. Typical a/LCI data. (A) Angle-resolved depth scan of light scattered from tissue. Lighter shades of gray indicate increased amount of scattered light. (B) Amplitude scan indicating depth increments used for processing. Tissue layers are labeled, and gray bar indicates basal layer (optical coherence tomography). Example angular scans for 3 tissue types pictured (solid line) with best-fit Mie theory solutions (dashed line) and size indicated. Reprinted with permission from Terry NG, et al. .
