An active handheld micromanipulator has been developed that is capable of automated intraocular acquisition of B-mode and C-mode optical coherence tomography scans that are up to 4 mm wide. The manipulator is a handheld Gough-Stewart platform actuated by ultrasonic linear motors. The manipulator has been equipped with a Fourier-domain common-path intraocular OCT probe that fits within a 25-gauge needle. The paper describes the systems and techniques involved, and presents preliminary results of B-mode and C-mode scans.
