We discuss the development of quantum optical coherence tomography (Q-OCT), an imaging modality with a number of potential applications. Although Q-OCT is not expected to replace its eminently successful classical cousin, optical coherence tomography (OCT), it does offer some advantages as a biological imaging paradigm. These include greater axial resolution and higher signal-to-background ratio, immunity to dispersion that can lead to deeper subsurface penetration, and nondestructive probing of light-sensitive samples. Q-OCT also serves as a quantum template for constructing classical systems that mimic its salutary properties.
