We investigate a spatial coordinate correction (SCC) method to track motion with high accuracy for optical coherence elastography (OCE). Through SCC, we refer the displacement field tracked by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the loaded sample to individual material points defined in a fixed coordinate system. SCC allows OCE to perform spatially and temporally unambiguous tracking of displacement and enables accurate mechanical characterization of biological tissue for cancer diagnosis and tumor margin assessment. In this study, we validated the effectiveness of motion tracking based on SCC using experimental OCE data obtained from ex vivo human breast tissues.
