Structural changes following photodynamic therapy evaluated by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non invasive and non-contact imaging modality producing cross sectional images of retinal tissues . The OCT is analogous to Bmode ultrasound except that light is used rather than sound waves. This provides a higher resolution of 10–20 microns.
