English abstract:
We consider the parametric analysis of frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) signals. A Monte Carlo (Gibbs sampler) detection-estimation method for determining the depths and reflection coefficients of tissue interfaces (reflective sites in the tissue) is proposed. Our method is blind since it estimates the instrumentation-dependent "fringe" function along with the tissue parameters. Sparsity of the detected interfaces is enforced by an impulse detector and a modified Bernoulli-Gaussian prior with a minimum distance constraint. Numerical results using synthetic and real signals demonstrate the excellent performance and fast convergence of our method.
