Abstract—Using non-invasive tomography demonstrated against biological system structures involved in rolling the leaves critical of rice leaves. Rice is one of the most important crops in the world. However, rice yields are now decreasing due to unexpected changes in climate and the occurrence of mutations. Many research groups have studied this situation and important biological system structures such as bulliform cells, aerenchyma cells, and vascular bundle are involved in the rolling of rice leaves. We have noninvasive identified the structures of these rice leaves using a Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography (SS-OCT). Furthermore, the number of small veins involved in the rolling of the leaves and the three angles based on the mid-vein quantified through acquiring tomography images. In this paper, we propose the possibility of optical coherence tomography as a biological diagnostic method for future agriculture.
