Anterior & Posterior Segment OCT: Current Technology & Future Applications
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of the retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye (geteyesmart.org).
Anterior segment OCT covers structures in front of the vitreous humour – iris, cornea, lens and ciliary body. Posterior segment OCT includes the anterior hyaloid membrane and all the structures behind it – vitreous humour, retina, choroid and optic nerve.
This book is a comprehensive guide to the use of OCT in anterior and posterior segment surgery. Beginning with an introduction to the technique, the following chapters examine OCT for numerous different procedures including for corneal disorders, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, keratoconus and refractive surgery.
The accompanying interactive DVD ROM demonstrates intraoperative use of OCT for different surgical procedures.
