    The Additional Diagnostic Value of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Its Application Procedure in A Wide Variety of Avian Species

    Objective : The current study introduced OCT as a novel tool in clinical veterinary ophthalmology in a much wider variety of free-living avian species than hitherto studied. Methods: OCT was tested and performed in 39 free-living birds (21 species of 12 families) and compared to direct ophthalmoscopy. Birds were examined with combinations of different restraints (manual restraint or fixation on a holding device) and different anaesthesia regimes (none, sedation, general anaesthesia). Inter- and intra-species specific variations of the general procedure, the restraint methods and the clinical findings were evaluated. Results: OCT was possible in all examined avian species (from 40 g ...
