Many medical decisions rely on histological analysis of tissue. The success of the analysis depends on the provided sample being from the to-be-classified tissue. Retrieving reliable tissue samples, e.g., by biopsy, is a challenging task. Hence, we study methods for biopsy guidance, i.e., using in-needle imaging techniques like optical coherence tomography.
