    The EXPLORE Study - The Use of Binocular OCT Imaging for the Assessment of Ocular Disease

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging modality, first described in 1991, that provides cross-sectional images of the eye in a non-invasive manner. OCT is analogous to ultrasonography but measures the "echoes" of light waves rather than sound and, as a result, generates extremely high-resolution images (~5 μm axial resolution). Although OCT has already proven revolutionary in ophthalmology, current OCT systems are large, expensive, and require skilled personnel for image acquisition and interpretation. Furthermore, current OCT systems are limited to examination of specific regions of single eyes - for example, separate devices are typically required for anterior segment (e.g., cornea ...
