About this book


Recent advances in ophthalmic imaging technology have revolutionized fundus examination and contributed significantly in elucidating the pathophysiology of retinal diseases and improving their diagnosis and treatment. It is therefore fitting that this detailed full-color textbook in the Medical Retina series is devoted to ocular imaging. The volume reviews in detail the role of both established and novel forms of imaging, and is designed to be of benefit to clinicians and researchers alike. All of the chapters have been written by internationally recognized experts at the forefront of their fields. The result is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of retinal imaging that should prove informative and useful for everyone interested in the retina. Topics include: •Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) of macular diseases •Comparison of OCT equipment •Simultaneous SD-OCT and confocal SLO imaging •Ultra-widefield imaging •Autofluorescence imaging •Near-infrared imaging •Macular pigment imaging •Metabolic mapping •Imaging of the choroid •Imaging the vitreous and the vitreoretinal interface with SD-OCT •New developments in OCT technology •Molecular imaging
