    Introducing 3-D OCT to live surgery

    No doubt the commercialization of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has forever changed the clinical management of retinal disorders. Its introduction into the surgical realm may be a game changer in its own right, said Pravin U. Dugel, MD. Modern microscopes limit the surgeon’s view, and “axial information must be inferred from instrument shadowing and other indirect cues.” 1 As advances in OCT technology have increased the ability of these devices to image ocular structures better, the category as a whole has moved into a wide variety of applications, including the ability to assess subretinal fluid, pigment epithelial detachments, and ...
