      This new technology is expanding in daily practice. These expert authors are the ideal resource for clinicians seeking practical "how-to" information. Written for: Retina and glaucoma specialists and fellows, general ophthalmologists and residents in training. OCT is a relatively new imaging technique that is becoming increasingly popular among ophthalmologists in both private and academic settings. Imaging has been a slow moving area in ophthalmology for some time, but now OCT is providing another, more detailed source of demonstrable change in the eye, in diagnostic, therapeutic or post-surgical setting. (OCT and ultrasound both measure advancing disease states and post surgical healing ...

    2. Endoscopic Detection of Esophageal Neoplasia (Book Chapter)

      Endoscopic Detection of Esophageal Neoplasia (Book Chapter)

      Book Chapter: Endoscopic visualization of the esophagus has been practiced since the 19th century; the first illuminated views were obtained by Mikulicz in 1880 (1). Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) or “upper endoscopy” is one of the most frequently performed semi-invasive procedures, currently accounting for approx 25% of all endoscopies conducted annually. Use of endoscopy to detect esophageal dysplasia in the United States is primarily limited to evaluation of Barrett’s esophagus (BE), an eponym describing metaplastic replacement of normal squamous mucosa of the esophagus with a columnar epithelium resembling that found in the small intestine (Fig. 1) (2). BE is the major ...

    4. Application of Optical Coherence Tomography in Medical Imaging: Reconstruction of the Human Ear Canal from Optical Coherence Tomography Scans (Book)

      Application of Optical Coherence Tomography in Medical Imaging: Reconstruction of the Human Ear Canal from Optical Coherence Tomography Scans (Book)
      This book presents a new approach for generating 3D models of the human ear using a novel imaging technology called Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). OCT performs high-resolution, cross-sectional tomographic imaging of the internal microstructure in materials and biological systems by measuring backscattered light. The idea is to use an OCT scanner to collect series of cross-sectional images, to compound these 2D images into a 3D volume andto extract the ear's surface. The goal is to provide an accurate model of the ear canal and concha for appropriate shaping of hearing aids. This book explains the methods that were developed ...

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography in Optic Nerve Disorders (Book Chapter)

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Optic Nerve Disorders (Book Chapter)
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an evolving technology that provides noninvasive imaging of tissues. It uses low coherence interferometry to produce cross-sectional images based on the optical scattering of light, 1 similar to ultrasound. Since its introduction into the ophthalmology clinic in the 1990s, optical coherence tomography has become a standard tool for the evaluation of ophthalmic disease. Although its main use was initially for retinal disease and glaucoma, OCT now has a niche in neuro-ophthalmic evaluation. It is mainly useful to rule in occult retinal disease when the etiology of visual loss is unclear, but it is also used ...

    7. Spatial Imaging with Wavefront Coding and Optical Coherence Tomography (Book Chapter)

      Spatial Imaging with Wavefront Coding and Optical Coherence Tomography (Book Chapter)
      With wavefront coding the wavefront in the pupil plane of an optical imaging system is modified by introducing a phasemask. The resulting image intensity distribution is processed with an inverse digital filter providing an image of the object with enhanced depth of focus. Optical coherence tomography provides three-dimensional information about the object. The depth resolution is only determined by the coherence length of the light source. New applications and methods based on these techniques are presented.

    15. 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 ...
