      How to Acquire High-Resolution Anatomic Ocular Tissue Information with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Leica Science Lab

      OCT was first demonstrated in 1991 and was quickly recognized as an important tool in ophthalmology, rapidly becoming the standard of care in retinal diagnostics. Today, OCT is one of the most frequently ordered diagnostic tests. OCT technology is continually evolving, becoming increasingly popular in clinical and non-clinical imaging applications, including ophthalmic surgery, gastrointestinal imaging and interventional cardiology. OCT functions by a process very similar to ultrasound – except, of course, that is uses light instead of sound. Low intensity, near-infrared (NIR) light is directed at the patient. A small amount of this light is reflected back to the system and ...

    2. How Intrasurgical OCT can Impact the Surgical Approach to Membrane Peeling

      How Intrasurgical OCT can Impact the Surgical Approach to Membrane Peeling

      When treating patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT), peeling of the inner limiting membrane (ILM) or an epiretinal membrane (ERM) is often indicated. Successful outcomes depend on precise surgical maneuvers as well as the surgeon’s experience in order to assess whether the entire membrane has been removed, as this is crucial for successful release of traction. Having as much visual information as possible helps the surgeon confidently perform membrane peeling. It also supports identification of residual membranes, and examination of the retinal morphology immediately following the procedure for complications such as macular holes, sub-retinal edema or residual traction. High-resolution cross-sectional ...
