Four-dimensional (4D) imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) — a high-resolution, noninvasive tomographic imaging technique — applied to cardiac development can be used to study the interaction of cardiac morphology and function in vivo. However, to image the fast beating embryonic heart, the biggest challenge confronted by current OCT systems is the slow rate of 3D volume image data acquisition.
