An interferometric technique that uses a spectrometer and advanced mathematics to obtain depth information about the layers of a structured tissue sample, such as the retina. It is a type of frequency-domain optical coherence tomography that is encoded in echo time delay and magnitude of backscattered light by spectral analysis of the interference fringe pattern. It enables 3-D imaging, denser sampling, and novel scanning.
