Description

Optical coherence tomography OCT is a laser-based form of echography that allows for noninvasive and rapid imaging of intraocular structures. This technology permits the clinician to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis of retina and optic nerve in a cross sectional format with axial resolution of 5 microns or better. This lecture provides an anatomically-guided overview of the physical principles of OCT technology and its application to retinal vascular and vitreo-macular disorders.

Objectives

Diagnosis & Management
Understand what disorders and conditions would benefit from OCT imaging in diagnosis and management.
Interpretation
Understand how to interpret OCT findings related to various disorders and conditions of the macula and posterior segment.

Good overview. I would have liked to see him discuss more on relevance of the macular thickness, including ARMD, generalized thinning implications, and Plaquenil.

Better audio and images.
