About this book


This book aims to build concepts and create a solid foundation in the field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the general ophthalmologists as well as for the resident trainees and fellows. The chapters are written by leading international authorities in a style comprehensible to a broad audience. Numerous clinical pictures and SD-OCT scans help elucidate various clinical entities.OCT is the optical analog of ultrasound imaging and has emerged as a powerful imaging technique that enables non-invasive, in-vivo, high-resolution, cross-sectional imaging in retinal tissue. A new generation spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) technology has now been developed, representing a quantum leap in resolution and speed, achieving in vivo optical biopsy. i.e. the visualization of tissue architectural morphology in situ and in real time. This book encompasses the role of SD-OCT in both medical and surgical macular disorders.

The book is meant coherent and comprehensive for both vitreoretinal specialists as well as general ophthalmologists.

“The main strengths of this book include an unparalleled collection of unique images with a high accuracy of interpretation, full coverage and detailed explanation of the topic by experts, and up-to-date knowledge of the field. Perhaps a weakness is minor redundancy of disease entities in different chapters by different authors. … this book is well suited for clinicians, clinical scientists, imaging experts, and anyone interested in OCT technology development.”(Igor Kozak, Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 257, 2019)
