      Monitoring Glaucoma Progression with OCT

      Since glaucoma is a progressive disease, physicians are constantly searching for reliable tools to monitor it over time. Before the introduction of optical coherence tomography, determination of glaucoma progression relied heavily on clinical assessment of the optic nerve, comparison of disc photos over time and visual field analysis. Although these remain key elements of the glaucoma evaluation, they’re still subjective and qualitative in nature, limiting their ability to detect progression reliably. In this article, we’ll provide tips on how to use the OCT devices we’re familiar with to monitor progression, and how to avoid artifacts and other ...

    2. Advances In Intraoperative OCT

      Advances In Intraoperative OCT

      Over the past decade, there have been major advances in the field of intraoperative optical coherence tomography. From the development of the portable OCT probe to the first microscope-integrated system, intraoperative OCT has evolved from a research idea to a clinically viable technology. Advances such as heads-up visualization and microscope-integration, as well as the results from large clinical studies, have pushed the field forward. While the feasibility and potential utility of intraoperative optical coherence tomography has been demonstrated both in clinical studies and in real-world usage, several areas of enhancement are needed to enable iOCT to be part of a ...

      OCT Technology: Will We Be “Swept” Away?

      A look at the differences between spectral-domain and swept-source OCT, and the potential clinical benefits of swept-source. As is sometimes the case with technology, just when we get comfortable using a device and begin to understand its secrets, limitations and how to best put it to use in our practices, a shiny new instrument arrives and demands our attention. Though this imaging modality has been around for some time, swept-source optical coherence tomography is one such example. It captures your attention, and though you may already use a spectral-domain device, you’re left wondering if it’s the next big ...

    4. Outer Retinal Layers as Predictors of Vision Loss

      Outer Retinal Layers as Predictors of Vision Loss

      Optical coherence tomography is a well-established diagnostic imaging technique that allows both qualitative (morphology and reflectivity) and quantitative (thickness, mapping and volume) analyses of the retinal architecture. 1,2 Since OCT has become available, correlations between anatomy on OCT and visual function have been investigated in a number of retinal diseases. 3-8 Retinal thickness parameters as assessed by OCT have been studied extensively in clinical trials, however only modest correlation between these quantitative parameters and visual acuity among a variety of retinal diseases has been established. 3,4,9-11 Advances in OCT technology, most importantly the advent of spectral-domain OCT ...
