    Use of Handheld Intraoperative Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in a Variety of Vitreoretinal Diseases

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The use of intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) has been described with a variety of imaging devices and techniques. The purpose of this investigation is to examine the role of iVue (Optovue, Fremont, CA), a commercially available, handheld spectral-domain iOCT system, in vitreoretinal surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS For this retrospective, observational case series, patients who underwent a vitreoretinal surgical procedure and were imaged with the iVue were identified. Images were qualitatively assessed. RESULTS: Five cases were identified, including an examination under anesthesia, epiretinal membrane, macular hole, retinal detachment, and non-clearing vitreous hemorrhage in the setting of proliferative ...
