    Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography has practical applications in the diagnosis, management of retinal disease
    Major advances in technology have given birth to state-of-the-art imaging devices that decisively raise the bar in diagnostics in ophthalmology today, according to Jeffrey S. Heier, MD, speaking at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. According to Dr. Heier, a vitreoretinal surgeon at Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, specific spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) technology (Spectralis, Heidelberg Engineering) is leading the way in this retinal revolution, redefining not only how ophthalmologists diagnose diseases but also how they manage them.

    1. As we become more familiar with SD-OCT and increasingly aware of the capabilities of this imaging technique, I think that we are learning more about disease states, which, in turn, allows us to become better diagnosticians.
