optical coherence tomography

Multimodal imaging approach useful in treatment of uveitisSuccessful imaging for the group of diseases known as uveitis depends on the specific underlying etiology. Tailoring the imaging approach using a variety of imaging methods, which are often complementary, can yield the maximum amount of information. This approach is useful not only for diagnosis and management of patients, but increasingly in clinical trials.
New technology takes invisibility cloak off in retinal imaging
New technology takes invisibility cloak off in retinal imagingNew imaging technologies, such as ultra-wide-field fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography angiography, are providing more details about retinal diseases than previous imaging technologies, leading to better understanding of disease processes.
The case of the blurred disc marginsA 16-year-old female was scheduled for her periodic ophthalmic evaluation to update her spectacle lens prescription. At the visit, she reported a history of migraines, but the remainder of her personal and family medical history was non-contributory. She took no medications and had a history of low hyperopic refractive correction.
New concepts about macular edema emerge from modern imaging studiesVolume-rendered optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging allows new insight into retinal vascular flow and morphological changes in eyes with macular edema (ME), and the information obtained is the basis for new ideas about the pathogenesis of ME and therapeutic intervention, according to Richard F. Spaide, MD, Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants of New York.
How OCT innovations are changing glaucoma careOptical coherence tomography (OCT) is swiftly improving the diagnosis of glaucoma, according to Joel S. Schuman, MD, who helped invent the technology.
Introducing 3-D OCT to live surgery
Introducing 3-D OCT to live surgeryThe advent of three-dimensional optical coherence tomography to live surgery may bring greater clarity to how ophthalmologists visualize structures and how they operate.
OCT takes on evolving role in neuro-ophthalmologyOptical coherence tomography increasingly helps neuro-ophthalmologists to localize the location of damage, make a diagnosis, and assess treatment.
Pearls for efficient femtosecond laser cataract surgery in busy practiceThe introduction of a femtosecond laser for cataract surgery into a practice can bring the concern for the potental loss of efficiency. A Louisville surgeon provides some solid advice and shares some strategies to make this new technology as efficient as possible.
New theory may address idiopathic macular holesThe evaluation of multiple optical coherence tomography images supports the combined tractional-hydration theory of idiopathic macular hole formation, progression, and closure.
Functional imaging of ocular circulation under developmentFunctional optical coherence tomography characterizing global and local circulation in the retina and optic nerve head shows promise for improving the diagnostic and prognostic evaluation of glaucoma.
