Optical coherence tomography is capable of imaging the microstructures within tissues. To preserve the transverse resolution at all imaging depths, we implement a dynamic focusing scheme. To improve the quality of images further, a simple speckle reduction scheme is employed which uses the vibration introduced by the translation stage used for axial scanning. A spatial compounding technique is developed based on co-registration followed by an averaging algorithm. We conclude that the degree of speckle reduction achieved is worth the expense of more complicated processing required.
