    The Vitreous in Uveitis: Characterizing the Invisible with Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose The current gold standard to grade vitreous inflammation is the Nussenblatt scale based in clinical examination, published in 1985. Nowadays a big effort is undergoing to come out with more objective and reliable methods based in optical coherence (OCT) imaging analysis. Methods A systematic review was done to identify the articles that quantify or assess qualitatively vitreous inflammation with OCT. Results Twelve papers were included.
