Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Ayham Skaf, MD (California Retina Associates)
Description: This is the third edition of the source and atlas on optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of the eye. From explaining the technology to case illustrations along a broad spectrum, it is the reference for this imaging technology.
Purpose: It meets the authors' objectives, and colorfully illustrates the appearance of the eye in disease and health. It demonstrates a wide variety of disease states using various types of SD-OCT in side-by-side comparison to fundus photos and fluorescein angiograms, adding a third dimension.
Audience: As the authors are the developers of OCT technology, there is no more authoritative source to write this book. This clinical reference is well designed for all clinical eyecare professionals. Optometrists, ophthalmologists at all levels of training, and specialists from cornea to neuro-ophthalmology can use it.
Features: Starting with a comprehensive yet simple-to-understand introduction to OCT technology and image interpretation, the book next moves to disease-based case illustrations of a variety of retinal conditions where OCT is useful. Special sections are dedicated to the use of OCT in glaucoma, anterior segment, and neuro-ophthalmology conditions. Finally, for those who wish to learn more about the technical protocols and physics of OCT, two appendixes go into more depth.
Assessment: With the rapid advancement in OCT technology and image resolution, this is a necessary update. It continues to be the premier reference and atlas on OCT imaging, written by the inventors themselves. It is a great addition to every eye care professional's library.
