Adam Wax’s Mission to Create OCT

Dr. Adam Wax (BME) describes his mission to create a profitable, low-cost optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging device in recently published article in The Translational Scientist. Dr. Wax stays that with OCT we use light, which moves much more quickly – so you can’t just time it with an electronic stopwatch. The result is a device about the size of a shoebox that costs under $10,000, which essentially allows doctors to visit remote locations or perhaps a retirement home, where patients are less mobile, and scan 30 or 40 people in a single session.
