Implant Biocompatibility

OCT can provide valuable information about the imflammatory response of tissue surrounding implants with the aim of improving the biocompatability of the materials and material coatings of implants.  Dental implants, polymeric vascular grafts, implant-assisted healing of diabetic dermal chronic wounds, and sustained ocular drug delivery are just a few examples of the many areas in which OCT is enabling doctors and reseachers to improve implant biocompatibility,
