Abstract

The clinician uses a variety of imaging techniques to evaluate pathology and to make therapeutic decisions in ophthalmology. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new technology that has been used increasingly to evaluate and manage a variety of retinal diseases. It is used to obtain a cross section of the retina based on the reflectivity of different layers within the retina, allowing detection of morphologic and micrometric changes in retinal tissue.
