spectral-domain OCT

Electroretinography: Out of the laboratory and into the clinicOCT has many benefits, yet falls short of reliably diagnosing and managing retinopathies and glaucoma. ERG remains the stalwart method for this application and this article highlights how technological advancements have enabled its introduction to the clinic.
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.
How macular OCT scanning affects glaucoma evaluationLet’s examine what this specific (and separate) scan pattern can offer diagnostically
Predicting glaucoma onset: AIG identifies prognostic value for FD-OCTAnalyses of data from the Advanced Imaging for Glaucoma Study showed many Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography parameters were significant risk factors for glaucoma onset in eyes that were glaucoma suspect or had pre-perimetric glaucoma.
