Mainly, medical decisions rely on histological analysis of the tissue. The correct analysis depends on the provided sample of tissue which needs to be classified. 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.
