This paper presents a review of the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT), its principles and important applications. Basic OCT systems are described and the physical foundations of OCT signal properties and signal recording systems are reviewed. Recent examples of OCT applications in ophthalmology, cardiology, gastroenterology and dermatology outline the relevance of this advanced imaging modality in the medical field.
