      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 ...

      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 ...
