We report a new approach in optical coherence tomography (OCT) called full-field Fourier-domain OCT (3F-OCT). A three-dimensional image of a sample is obtained by digital reconstruction of a three-dimensional data cube, acquired with a Fourier holography recording system, illuminated with a swept source. We present a theoretical and experimental study of the signal-to-noise ratio of the 3F-OCT approach versus serial image acquisition (flying-spot OCT) approach.
