We present a novel image acquisition technique for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) that enables manual lateral scanning. The technique compensates for the variability in lateral scan velocity based on feedback obtained from correlation between consecutive A-scans. Results obtained from phantom samples and biological tissues demonstrate successful assembly of OCT images from manually-scanned datasets despite non-uniform scan velocity and abrupt stops encountered during data acquisition. This technique could enable the acquisition of images during manual OCT needle-guided biopsy or catheter-based imaging, and for assembly of large field-of-view images with hand-held probes during intraoperative in vivo OCT imaging.
