    Retinal Structure of Birds of Prey Revealed by Ultra-High Resolution Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
    PURPOSE. To reveal three-dimensional (3D) information about the retinal structures of birds of prey in vivo METHODS. An ultra-high resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) system was built for in vivo imaging of bird of prey retina. The calibrated imaging depth and axial resolution of the system were 3.1 mm and 2.8 µm (in tissue), respectively. 3D segmentation was performed for calculation of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) map. RESULTS. High resolution OCT images of the retinas of four species of birds of prey: two diurnal hawks (Buteo platypterus and Buteo brachyurus) and two nocturnal owls (Bubo ...
