    Discover the value of en face OCT imaging on retinal diseases

    En face o ptical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable imaging strategy for anatomic and angiographic viewing of the fundus. The technology is useful for diagnosing and monitoring diseases with layer-specific anatomic abnormalities or microvascular flow alterations, said Philip J. Rosenfeld, MD, PhD. “The real advantage of en face OCT is the ability to slice and dice the images throughout their entire depth, from the choroid to the vitreous,” said Dr. Rosenfeld, professor of ophthalmology, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami. “ En face OCT imaging became clinically useful with the advent of high-speed, high-density ...
