1. Spectral Domain OCT in age-related macular degeneration: preliminary results with Spectralis HRA-OCT

    PURPOSE: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging has become extremely valuable in demonstrating the presence of neurosensory or retinal pigment epithelial elevation or detachment associated with occult choroidal newvessels. This imaging method has recently been improved using the Fourier Transform and is called Spectral Domain-OCT or SD-OCT. The preliminary results using this imaging technique can now be used to analyze the advantages of the technique's sensitivity and acquisition speed. MATERIAL: and methods: A consecutive series of 100 AMD patients was examined prospectively and followed with the Spectralis HRA-OCT device (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany). Each patient underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination ...
