    Heartbeat elastography allows assessment of cornea condition

    Several diseases of the cornea, such as corneal dystrophy and keratoconus, lead to underlying changes in a cornea's intrinsic biomechanical properties as well as the inherent cellular damage. Measuring those biomechanical markers could be a valuable tool for monitoring and detecting the diseases, especially if the technique can be a non-contact method. Non-invasive measurement methods are inherently likely to be best suited for eventual translation into clinics, and for reducing patient discomfort. Optical coherence elastography (OCE), in which optical coherence tomography is used to image tissue while it is under some form of transient local mechanical deformation and subsequent ...
