    2. Optical Coherence Tomography: Principles and Applications (Book)

      Optical Coherence Tomography: Principles and Applications (Book)
      This book gives a broad treatment of the subject which will include 1)the optics, science, and physics needed to understand the technology 2)a description of applications with a critical look at how the technology will successfully address actual clinical need, and 3) a discussion of delivery of OCT to the patient, FDA approval and comparisons with available competing technologies. The required mathematical rigor will be present where needed but be presented in such a way that it will not prevent non-scientists and non-engineers from gaining a basic understanding of OCT and the applications as well as the issues ...

    3. Atlas of Optical Coherence Tomography of Macular Diseases (Book)

      Atlas of Optical Coherence Tomography of Macular Diseases (Book)
      In real time, optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides high-resolution cross-sectional images of the macula very similar to those obtained by in vivo histopathological sections. OCT represents a major advance in the diagnostics of retinal disease and has found rapid acceptance among retinal specialists worldwide. OCT is not a substitute for a thorough clinical examination, fundus imaging or various angiographic techniques, but a superb adjunctive tool for probing the mysteries of retinal disease. Throughout this highly illustrated text of both normal and diseased appearances, OCT images are accompanied by fluorescein angiograms and standard fluoroscopic scans, thereby providing the reader with an ...

    4. Coherent-Domain Optical Methods: Biomedical Diagnostics, Environment and Material Science (Book)

      Coherent-Domain Optical Methods: Biomedical Diagnostics, Environment and Material Science (Book)

      For the first time in one set of books, coherent-domain optical methods are discussed in the framework of various applications, which are characterized by a strong light scattering. A few chapters describe basic research containing the updated results on coherent and polarized light non-destructive interactions with a scattering medium, in particular, diffraction, interference, and speckle formation at multiple scattering. These chapters allow for understanding coherent-domain diagnostic techniques presented in later chapters. A large portion of Volume I is dedicated to analysis of various aspects of optical coherence tomography (OCT) - a very new and growing field of coherent optics. Two chapters ...

    5. The Anterior Visual System and Circadian Function with Reference to Alzheimer's Disease (Book Chapter)

      The Anterior Visual System and Circadian Function with Reference to Alzheimer's Disease (Book Chapter)
      Alzheimer’s disease (AD) impacts visual function early in the course of the disease, and functional losses correlate with cognitive losses. Several functional vision losses are frequently identified in AD. There is evidence for deficits in contrast sensitivity [1], motion perception [2, 3], performance on backward masking tests [1] and color discrimination of blue, short-wavelength hues [4]. Damage secondary to AD occurs in the visual association cortex and other higher cortical areas, as well as the primary visual cortex [5, 6]. Additional studies have reported def icits in the retinocalcarine pathway [7–10]. This path- way extends from the photoreceptors ...
