Abstract

We used the polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) to measure the degrees of circular polarization (DOCP) in human cervix. It was found that DOCP measurements are sensitive to the tissue scattering changes caused by the cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. The sensitivity and specificity of the PS-OCT diagnosis were 94.4 and 90.6 %.
