Focal Points 2014 Module: Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography

Focal Points 2014 Module: Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an essential tool in diagnosing and managing many retinal disorders. OCT serves an important role in glaucoma care by accurately and reproducibly measuring nerve fiber layer (NFL) thickness. In anterior segment OCT imaging, it is helpful in assessing angle anatomy, iris lesions, anterior chamber biometry, and corneal thickness.

This Focal Points issue provides a complete guide to the principles and interpretation of OCT images. Upon completion of this issue, you should be able to:

  • Describe how an optical coherence tomography (OCT) image is generated
  • Identify the structural layers in a normal OCT retinal image
  • Interpret OCT images of common retinal disorders
  • Outline how OCT images may aid in the diagnosis and management of retinal disorders

Focal Points issues are practical, hands-on discussions of the clinical issues you face daily. Each issue delivers high-quality, trusted ophthalmic information written and reviewed by leading experts.

Subscribers receive 12 issues a year, plus access to the Focal Points digital archive.
