We’ll look at the OCT through a number of common diseases. Below, we’ve highlighted a few diseases with their common OCT findings: Wet AMD leads to intraretinal fluid (IRF) and subretinal fluid (SRF) accumulation. The choroidal neovascular membrane (CNV) can be visualized.How do you know it's the temporal side of the Oct?
You know it’s the temporal side because the nasal side of the OCT has a thicker retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL). Here is a BRVO with central macular edema. Chronic RVOs lead to inner retinal atrophy, which is also characteristic of the disease. Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR)What is optoptical coherence tomography (OCT)?
Optical coherence tomography is a non-contact, high-resolution, in vivo imaging modality. It produces cross-sectional tomographic images just like ultrasound. Decreased OCT image quality can be attributable to cataracts which block light, patient motion artifact, or any other media opacity.Can Oct be used to track optic nerve edema?
It can also be used to track optic nerve edema. Anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT) Anterior segment OCT is most commonly used to evaluate the iridocorneal angle, such as for patients with narrow angles. It can also be used for corneal biometry to measure the thickness and steepness of the cornea.
