Visualizing stiffness within the local tissue environment at the cellular and subcellular level promises to provide insight into the genesis and progression of disease. In this Letter, we propose ultrahigh-resolution optical coherence elastography (UHROCE), and demonstrate 3D imaging of local axial strain of tissues undergoing compressive loading. We combine optical coherence microscopy (OCM) and phase-sensitive detection of local tissue displacement to produce strain elastograms with resolution (
