Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Retina

This technique examines retinal layers through images, visualizing a cross-section of the desired area of the retina. The slightest irregularity among the layers (as in cases of AMD) is projected, measured, compared and monitored, thanks to the different visual perspectives offered by the software. Even 3-D imaging of the retina can be obtained.

A database of population studies is incorporated, giving us automatic comparisons of the thickness of retinal ganglion fibers which lead to the optic nerve, and in this way assess their normality. This is especially useful in the case of patients with glaucoma, both as a support to diagnosis as well as in monitoring its development over time.
