    6. Intraoperative OCT improves ophthalmic surgery

      Intraoperative OCT improves ophthalmic surgery
      The most popular examination method in ophthalmology today is optical coherence tomography (OCT ). Traditionally, OCT examinations have been performed pre- and post-operatively in vitreo-retinal surgery. While this application of the technology has enabled outcomes to be measured and results to be documented, surgeons have not had the ability to incorporate the results to improve surgical treatments. But with considerable advances to OCTincluding high-definition OCT (HD OCT), 3D visualization , and adaptive ...
