The high-resolution images obtained by OCT allow ophthalmologists to diagnose and monitor treatment for many retinal diseases. Optical coherence tomography is somewhat like ultrasound—but instead of sound, OCT uses light reflection to noninvasively obtain cross-sectional images of tissue structure. Originally developed in 1991 by James Fujimoto's group at MIT, as well as pioneering work from Adolf Fercher's group in Vienna, OCT has been the fastest adopted imaging technology in the history of ophthalmology.
