We describe a two-dimensional optical coherence tomography technique with which we were able to obtain multiple longitudinal slices of a biological sample directly in a single Z scan. The system is based on a femtosecond Cr4+:forsterite laser and an infrared camera for wide-field imaging of the sample with a depth resolution of 5 microm. With this imaging apparatus we were able to investigate human skin and mouse ear samples and to observe the different constitutive tissues.
