      Feature Of The Week 03/01/2019: Functional Retina lmaging using Adaptive Optics Swept-Source OCT at 1.6 MHz

      Functional assessment of the retina is a critical part of both clinical ophthalmology and vision research. Several techniques exist for measuring retinal function, such as Visual acuity/contrast sensitivity tests, Psychophysics and ERG (Electroretinogram and multifocal Electroretinogram). However, these approaches have important limitations, poor spatial resolution, slightly invasive; long duration of tests. There is great excitement about emerging noninvasive approaches to measuring retinal function, both from clinical and basic scientific perspectives .With emerging approaches such as gene therapy, stem cell therapy, and transplantation, there is new hope for rescuing existing dysfunctional photoreceptors. A critical aspect of these therapeutic approaches is ...

For the first time, physicians can view a high-resolution depth image on-screen to directly visualize the middle ear contents. Current diagnostic tools can only provide a view of the surface of the eardrum, so physicians are left to guess, or, unfortunately, employ invasive surgical procedures to diagnosis middle ear pathologies. PhotoniCare’s non-invasive solution eliminates ...
