1. Imaging of Optic Nerve Head Drusen: Improvements With Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Objective: To demonstrate a new algorithm that can determine the shape, location, and volume of optic nerve head drusen (ONHD), which were imaged with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT). Methods: One exenteration patient and 4 glaucoma patients with bilateral ONHD were recruited from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and from a private practice office. Images were obtained using an experimental SDOCT system developed at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital. With axial resolutions of about 6 [mu]m, SDOCT can obtain 2-dimensional images in 1/29 of a second, compared with commercially available time domain OCT ...
