OCT

Leveraging the evidence for patient care todayTimes are changing, and the amount of information coming at us from all directions can easily be overwhelming. This information—whether true or false—is unrelenting and has increased in magnitude over the past five years. Part of it may be the natural progression of one’s career and the expansion of one’s network, but most of it is just the sheer volume that is at our fingertips.
Engaging OCTA in glaucoma imaging
Engaging OCTA in glaucoma imagingA prospective, observational study found that eyes with mild POAG could be differentiated from pre-perimetric glaucomatous eyes, which also could be differentiated from normal eyes using OCTA-derived retinal vessel density measurements.
Clinical imaging of macular holesRecognize characteristics and stages of macular hole for better pictures
Anatomic outcome more precise in defining DME treatment failureThe goal of treatment for diabetic macular edema is to maintain or improve vision, but improvement of edema is a better metric for determining whether the treatment is having a benefit or failing.
Risks of falls in glaucoma patientsTaking note of a patient’s behavior can provide a multitude of clues on the patient’s current condition. Perhaps the most apparent observational feature would be a patient’s gait.
OCTA brings understanding to managing diabetic eye diseaseOptical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a promising new approach for visualizing retinal vascular pathology in eyes with diabetic eye disease that can be expected to have even greater utility in the future pending further enhancements.
Diagnosing and treating MacTel degenerative retinal diseaseIdiopathic macular telangiectasia (MacTel) is bilateral condition characterised by ectatic capillaries of the macula and atrophy of the neurosensory retina. Familiarity with the distinctive intraretinal cavitation on SD-OCT in type 2, the most common type, is key for correct diagnosis.
OCT imaging yields better visualizationFuture increases in imaging speed will improve performance and functionality for OCT and OCT angiography (OCTA), said James Fujimoto, PhD.
How adaptive optics will change retinal imaging
How adaptive optics will change retinal imagingAdaptive optics could allow clinicians to monitor the progression of retinal diseases cell-by-cell, according to Jacque Duncan, MD.
Multifunctional OCT system approval simplifies imagingA newly approved system (3D OCT-1 Maestro, Topcon) combines a high-resolution, color, non-mydriatric retinal camera with the latest spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology, and stands out for its versatility as well as its quality and ease of use.
