Overview

Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Second Edition is a completely revised and updated version of this classic book. Excellent illustrations, state-of-the-art technology, and informative text are just some of the updated features unique to this edition. These elements cohesively work together to successfully demonstrate the retina in normal and diseased states using the innovative OCT 3000. Authors Joel S. Schuman, MD, Carmen A. Puliafito, MD, and James G. Fujimoto, PhD, recognized leaders in the field of technology development, have collaborated to produce this comprehensive resource on this procedure. The range of topics includes macular and other retinal diseases, glaucoma, and a description of OCT technology. An appendix is included that contains a wealth of technical information for those interested in learning more about the principles of operation of this medical diagnostic imaging technology. Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Second Edition is written with the clinician in mind. The book's primary objective is to illustrate the appearance of the eye in health and disease, comparing conventional clinical technologies with OCT. This method introduces the clinician to the manifestations of disease as elucidated by OCT, while presenting the more familiar funduscopic and fluorescein angiographic appearance side-by-side. This text will provide a clinical reference for the retinal and glaucoma specialist which shows how to utilize and interpret OCT imaging to enhance diagnostic sensitivity and specificity as well as to enhance therapeutic decision making and monitor the outcome of treatment. General ophthalmologist and scientists interested in optical imaging of the eye will also find this insightful text a useful reference.
