A short-review of optical coherence tomography (OCT) technologies employed to evaluate and image flow and tiny movements is presented. Over the time, the progress of OCT from time domain to spectral (Fourier) domain SD-OCT has led to new approaches in measuring flow and tissue (object) vibration. In the present document, several procedures are presented of what is known today as OCTA, used to visualize tiny vessels in the human retina and replacing the need for injection in angiography. These methods are now extended to measurements of minuscule spatial variations due to action potential, cell division or tissue deformation in elastography.
