Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Second Edition is a completely revised and updated version of this classic text. Incorporated within over 700 pages are a multitude of updated features unique to this edition including over 1,600 color images, state-of-the-art technology, and case presentations. These elements cohesively work together to successfully demonstrate the retina in normal and diseased states using the innovative Stratus OCTTM.
Optical Coherence Tomography of Ocular Diseases, Second Edition is written with the clinician in mind. The text's primary objective is to illustrate the appearance of the eye in health and disease, comparing conventional clinical technologies using OCT imaging. This method introduces the clinician to the manifestations of disease as elucidated by OCT, while presenting the more familiar fundoscopic and fluorescein angiographic appearance side-by-side.
Drs. Joel S. Schuman, Carmen A. Puliafito, and James G. Fujimoto, PhD together with their co-authors have collaborated to produce this comprehensive resource. OCT applications in retinal diseases, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, anterior segment and a description of OCT technologies are all topics extensively covered in this new edition. An appendix is included that contains a wealth of technical information for those interested in learning more about the principles of operation of this medical diagnostic imaging technology.
This text will provide a clinical reference for the retinal and glaucoma specialist that shows how to utilize and interpret OCT imaging to enhance diagnostic sensitivity and specificity as well as to enhance therapeutic decision making and monitor the outcome of treatment. Both clinicians and scientists interested in optical imaging of the eye will find this insightful text a useful reference.
