      Deliberations of an International Panel of Experts on OCTA Nomenclature of nAMD
      A panel of imaging experts was assembled to review neovascular age-related macular degeneration optical coherence tomography angiography descriptors published to date, and test agreement on use of these terms, which was found to be low. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has been used to identify and characterize macular neovascularization (MNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). 1-4 Many studies have explored OCTA morphological features of MNV that might serve as ...

      OCT - catching macular degeneration before vision loss
      Growing old leads to a growing number of health problems, including those that challenge our ability to see. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that -- until recently -- robbed the elderly of the ability to read, drive and see the faces of their loved ones. Thanks to the invention of OCT, doctors can catch the disease before vision is lost. And with the aid of new drugs, AMD can be ...

      OSA Centennial Snapshots: OCT and the Flowering of Biophotonics
      The birth, commercialization and ultimate impact of OCT stand out as landmark accomplishments even amid the abundant advances in biophotonics during the 1980s and 1990s. Twenty-five years ago this month, the editors of Science accepted for publication a research paper titled Optical Coherence Tomography. That three-word phrase (and its punchier abbreviation, OCT) heralded a revolution in ophthalmologyone that would spawn a billion-dollar-a-year market, and affect millions of people.

      Optical Coherence Tomography: Technology and Applications Second Edition (Textbook)
      New medical imaging technologies can improve the diagnosis and clinical management of many diseases. Furthermore, advanced imaging also contributes to a better understanding of pathogenesis and therefore to the development of new pharmaceuticals and novel therapies. Thus, imaging plays a critical role in modern medical research and clinical practice. Noninvasive or minimally invasive imaging techniques have revolutionized diagnostic medicine during the last decades, e.g., X-ray computed tomography (CT), magnetic ...
