In this study, we developed a line-field Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (LF-FDOCT) system that performs lateral scanning using a two-dimension spatial light modulator and detects multiple channels of spectral domain OCT signal in parallel using a two-dimensional sensor. The LF-FDOCT system eliminates the need for mechanical scanning to acquire volumetric OCT data. It allows parallel acquisition of signal for B mode scan imaging through snapshot detection and offers unprecedented flexibility to select a fast scanning dimension. In this work, we describe the principle of LF-FDOCT imaging and present experimental results to demonstrate the effectiveness of this technology.
