We propose a cross-scanning optical coherence tomography (CS-OCT) system to correct eye motion artifacts in OCT angiography images. This system employs a dual-illumination configuration with two orthogonally polarized beams, each of which simultaneously perform raster scanning in perpendicular direction with each other over the same area. In the reference arm, a polarization delay unit is used to acquire the two orthogonally polarized interferograms with a single photo detector by introducing different optical delay lines. The two cross-scanned volume data are affected by the same eye motion but in two orthogonal directions. We developed a motion correction algorithm, which removes artifacts in the slow axis of each angiogram using the other and merges them through a nonrigid registration algorithm. In this manner, we obtained a motion-corrected angiogram within a single volume scanning time without additional eye-tracking devices.
