    How hardware, software advances expand OCT capabilities

    Progress in posterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging is continuing with novel software that provides better correction for eye motion, as well as new technology which offers faster imaging speeds, said James Fujimoto, PhD. These developments will enable advanced processing and quantitative assessment of three-dimensional OCT data that—in the not-too-distant future—will bring functional imaging of blood flow and vascular structure into the hands of clinicians, said Dr. Fujimoto, professor of electrical engineering and computer science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA. “We are now approaching a point with OCT where ophthalmologists have a view of the retina ...

    1. We are now approaching a point with OCT where ophthalmologists have a view of the retina that is similar to that of pathologists...In the future, functional imaging will make subtle changes in pathology more measurable, and these advances will enhance sensitivity when monitoring disease progression and response to therapy.
