Limited angle optical diffraction tomography (ODT) is a 3D quantitative phase imaging method that allows to retrieve information about 3D refractive index (RI) distribution of live, unlabeled biosamples. The main limitation of this method is that its common transmission configuration results in very low axial resolution. On the other hand, optical coherence tomography (OCT), working in its most popular reflection configuration retrieves information about the gradient of the RI of investigated samples. However, the results are of qualitative nature. Moreover, due to low numerical aperture of the objective lens typically used in OCT systems, the resolution is high in the axial direction and relatively low in transverse direction. From the point of view of K-space filling, these two imaging modalities are complementary. Here we present a method of combining ODT projections with OCT scans. The combined technique, called optical coherence diffraction tomography (OCDT) operates in transflective mode, where ODT is captured in transmission and OCT in reflection. Theory behind conversion of OCT scans into ODT projections is given. With the use of numerical simulations we show what enhancement can be obtained when OCT and ODT data are combined directly. Also, experimental verification is presented.
