A multimodal imaging system has been developed for tooth tissue imaging. This imaging system is designed to obtain one or more two-dimensional images of the tooth tissue, and those two-dimensional images are rendered with advanced algorithms to provide a high-contrast image. This system combines polarized reflectance imaging, fluorescence imaging, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging. The imaging system design, as well as some experimental results, will be discussed in the presentation.
